The goal of this workshop was the development of materials to support development of draft ISO standards supporting the long term preservation of analog and digital information. The focus was 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.

The focus of this meeting was the continuing development of proposals on the requirements, organization and content of an Archiving Reference Model.

Participation in the workshop was open to those who planned to attend US meetings and who intended to generate material for the Archiving Reference Model.
