The theme of 'access and preservation of electronic information: best practices and solutions' will be examined at the DLM-Forum 2002, to be held from 6 to 8 May 2002 in Barcelona, Spain.
The forum aims to look at best practices and solutions in accessing and preserving electronic information, from the perspective of both hardware and software developers and users in public administration and archives.
Presentations and discussions will focus on proven practical applications and ongoing projects. Users will have the opportunity to discuss their experiences and needs with representatives from the ICT (information and communication technologies) industry.
The event will also examine the creation of a Europe-wide network of excellence on electronic archives in order to boost Member State, regional and Community-level cooperation in the area.
Six industry papers on key areas of technology and application will be presented, including content management, user access and information protection, long-term availability and preservation and education, training and operation.
The forum will include an exhibition of suppliers of electronic document and content management, including the latest technologies for the capture, management, storage and delivery of electronic information.
