I’m pleased to report that this week I am participating in the NDAP 2008 conference which is being held in Taipei, Taiwan.

NDAP (National Digital Archives Program) was launched in 2002 with the objective of promoting and coordinating content digitization and preservation at leading museums, archives, universities, research institutes, and other content holders in Taiwan. The NDAP International Conference aims t0 provide a forum to encourage and facilitate interaction, collaboration, and dialogue among specialists in digital archives from different countries.

There’s a good programme which starts today with an opening talk on “Digital Preservation: Where are we now? Where are we going?” by Deanna B. Marcum, Library of Congress, USA. I’m also looking forward to this afternoon’s Creative Commons/IPR Session. Tomorrow sees sessions on Digital Preservation, Biodiversity and Archives. The Museum 2.0 session on Thursday morning will give me an opportunity to catch up with Jennifer Trant and Sebastian Chan and in the afternoon I’ll be speaking in the Library 2.0 session.

I’m not sure what the network access will be like at the conference but I’ll try and publish reports on the sessions.
