5th International Web Archiving Workshop (IWAW05)

 held in conjunction with the
8th European Conference on Research and Advanced Technologies for Digital Libraries
September 22 and 23 2005, Vienna, Austria



Following the great success of the first four International Workshops on Web Archiving in Darmstadt, Germany in 2001 (WebArchiving 2001), Rome, Italy, in 2002 (WebArchiving2002), in 2003 (WebArchiving 2003), and in Bath, UK, in 2004 (WebArchiving 2004), we are happy to invite you to the fifth Workshop in this series.

The workshop will provide a cross domain overview on active research and practice in all domains concerned with the acquisition, maintenance and preservation of digital objects for long-term access, with a particular focus on web archiving and studies on effective usage of this type of archives.

It is also intended to provide a forum for interaction among librarians, archivists, academic and industrial researchers interested in establishing effective methods and developing improved solutions for data acquisition, ingest, and accessibility maintenance.

See the original call for paper.
