CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

ISO Archiving Standards - Nineteenth US Workshop

DATE: February 20-23, 2001

HOST: The National Archives and Records Administration
Archives II
8601 Adelphi Road
College Park, MD 20740-6001

**** Participation Indication Deadline: February 13, 2001 ****

Note: The CCSDS OAIS Reference Model Red Book (equivalent to the ISO Draft International Standard) is available for review. The OAIS RM Comment Forms are also available.

The goal of this workshop is to review proposed responses to comments from the ISO Draft International Standard review and the CCSDS Red Book review on the Open Archival Information System (OAIS) Reference Model. As needed, other issues will be addressed regarding the development of materials to support development of draft ISO standards supporting the long term preservation of analog and digital information. The focus is the preservation of information obtained from observations of the terrestrial and space environments. However, preservation of information obtained from other environments is not precluded from these efforts.

WHO SHOULD PARTICIPATE IN THIS WORKSHOP:

You should participate in this workshop if you are willing to participate in this ongoing standards process by attending workshops and generating material to advance the Reference Model on archiving of information, with an emphasis on digital data.
