Update on upcoming PASIG events

The PASIG Steering Committee has two important updates on PASIG events for the next twelve months:

  1. After consultation with the Madrid local hosts, we have decided to *postpone* the 2022 PASIG conference until further notice. While we are excited to be back in Madrid as soon as possible, it did not seem feasible to plan a full conference at this time. We will provide updates on future conferences when appropriate.

  2. In the absence of a “full conference,” we are planning to host at least two smaller events, one in North America and one in Europe. These events will be one day in length, with targeted agendas and discussion topics.

We have some possible locations under consideration for these smaller events, but also welcome offers and suggestions for venues. Please contact the Steering Committee at if you would like to share ideas.

The Preservation and Archiving Special Interest Group (PASIG) is dedicated to advancing the practice of digital preservation and archiving.

PASIG events bring together practitioners, industry experts and researchers to share practical experiences, successes, and lessons learned. Topics include:

  • Guidelines, best practice, assessment and audit criteria, and standards

  • Architectures, designs, workflows, and deployments

  • Tools, systems, and services

  • Trends, directions, and emerging products and solutions

  • Practical case studies, reviews, and findings

  • Comparisons and choices (e.g. open source or proprietary, onsite or hosted, customized or standardized)

While we may occasionally discuss standards, PASIG is not a standards-setting organization. We welcome discussions about theory, research, and policy when they have a direct and tangible impact on current digital preservation practice.


PASIG events provide participants three main benefits:


Providing a platform for practitioners to come together and share information, designs, and good practice.


Bringing digital preservation practitioners and service providers together to inform market development and help practitioners discover the best solutions available.


Advancing digital preservation practice in organizations around the world, regardless of their size, industry, content, or experience.
