6th International Web Archiving Workshop (IWAW'06)

in conjunction with the 10th European Conference on Research and Advanced Technologies for Digital Libraries

September 21-22 2006, Alicante, Spain


Following the great success of the first five International Workshops on Web Archiving, we are happy to invite you to the sixth Workshop in this series (see previous editions of the workshop 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005).

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.


The complete edited proceedings are now available. Download the full proceedings (13.5 MB). For dowloading presentations made without paper, see links below in the agenda.
