International Internet Preservation Consortium: Web Archiving Conference

From netpreserve.org:

The Broad Value of Web Archives: Demonstrated Use (Call deadline February 28, 2012)

Libraries, archives, and other organizations have been systematically collecting web archives for over 10 years, namely in the service of cultural heritage. Content archived from the web has a multitude of uses. Commercial web archiving services are emerging to meet legal and business requirements. Data is scraped from the web and analyzed for media or academic research. Any topic can be studied on the internet and content published on the web in any given day is a unique reflection of the world.

Experts from around the world will gather in Washington, DC to hold an open conference to explore the broad value of web archives. The conference is sponsored by the International Internet Preservation Consortium, which is holding its General Assembly at the Library of Congress.

If you have any questions about the event, please contact Abigail Potter, IIPC Communications Officer,  abpo@loc.gov

A preliminary conference overview is available.
