Call for papers is open and the main topics of the Conference are :

Session 1:  Data Stewardship approaches to ensure long-term data and
knowledge preservation

   - Data and knowledge preservation policies and approaches
   - State of the art of data archiving and access techniques
   - Archives and Data Centres architectures and approaches
   - Architecture and engineering approaches for long-term preservation and
   data migration
   - Architecture of configurable systems in the context of evolving
   - Main threats to data preservation

*Session 2: Adding value to data and facilitation of data use*

   - Approaches and architectures for full data life cycle management: data
   ingestion, archival, retrieval, circulation, processing and dissemination
   - Large-scale data ("big-data") end-to-end management approaches and
   - State of the art techniques for data handling and adding value to data
   - Added value services and applications on top of archives
   - Building useful and user-friendly access to the data and associated
   - Integrating user feedback into archives and repositories
   - Facilitation of data use and exploitation: techniques, systems and
   - Collaboration platforms for data exploitation
   - Reporting on archive performance and user access

*Session 3: Metadata, formats, standards and interoperability*

   - Data formats and format specification methods
   - Metadata modelling for data description
   - Metadata Conversion
   - Data quality, data curation and data validation
   - Interoperability of systems and services for facilitated data access
   and use
   - Interoperable service architectures and distributed environments
   - Interoperability through common data formats and products
   - Standards to allow archives operability and access
   - Standards to facilitate data use
   - Semantics and ontologies
   - Using Persistent Identifiers in Archives

*Session 4: Data preservation lessons learnt and future prospects*

   - Examples of working systems and the lessons learnt that can be derived
   from them
   - Lessons learnt from archive migration to new technologies
   - Implications of new technologies for engineering processes, data
   storage, operations costs and system performance
   - Advantages and difficulties of building interoperable services
   - Common or re-usable systems for archives building
   - On-going or potential areas of cooperation in data preservation,
   access and use
   - Data at risk: examples of data not currently preserved or at risk
   - Usage of modern Web technology in the archives context
   - Preserving heterogeneity or aiming for homogeneity?
   - Certification of data archives
