Slotconferentie 'KEEP (Keeping Emulation Environments Portable)'


Het KEEP-project is een driejaarlijks programma voor onderzoek naar emulatiestragegieën voor langetermijnbewaring van complexe digitale objecten, zoals videogames. De belangrijkste resultaten van het project worden voorgesteld op een slotconferentie in Parijs op 17 februari 2012.

KEEP has provided a successful solution and proven that emulation can be a true alternative strategy for digital preservation. The final KEEP conference will present hands on results of the project. The presentations will show the technical possibilities of the outcomes and, in expert discussion panels, the relevance for the community will be highlighted and as well as the long-term outputs from KEEP.

A specific focus will be given to the legal implications of the project. Games are also a relevant factor for the orphan works discussion. The event will highlight how games and other digital objects encounter special problems, which are not so far a way from other audiovisual content and software. It has emerged that no provision was made for the special requirements of video games, when setting up national and European legislation. This event will highlight the different possibilities to address the preservation needs of games and complex digital objects and show where the controversies lie.

This conference is dedicated to memory institutions, game developers as well as political decision makers. Please join us for this one day conference to find out more about the KEEP project outputs and how you can use them in your own digital long-term preservation programmes.
