An Interactive Workshop Sponsored by ICSTI and ICSU Press

30-31 January 2000
ICSU Headquarters, Paris, France

Preliminary Programme (as of 13 December)

At the May 1999 ICSTI Meeting in Taipei, the report of the joint
ICSTI/CENDI investigation of the state of the art and practice of digital
archiving was presented.  The report indicated that while many groups are
working on this effort, there is a need to coordinate across data types and
stakeholder groups, particularly in the areas of system models, economic
models, and standards and policies.  The future will require a coordinated
approach to archiving that spans national and disciplinary boundaries.
This workshop, jointly sponsored by ICSTI and ICSU Press, is intended to
bring together representatives from the stakeholder groups around these key
issues.  It will bring together representatives from other groups who are
working in this area  - national libraries and depositories, the data
community, publishers, secondary producers, government and the private
sector, and third party services to discuss the issues that have been
identified. The purpose of this workshop is to discuss the issues from
various perspectives and to determine how the challenges in digital
archiving can be overcome.  It is based on the view that ICSTI, with its
diverse membership, is in a prime position to promote communication among
the stakeholder groups.

The format will be a series of 20-30-minute perspective papers followed by
a panel session with representatives from each of the stakeholder groups
(libraries, publishers, data centers, secondary publishers) drawn from the
meeting participants and the speakers.  The stakeholder groups will take
the issues identified by the speakers and discuss what can be done
collaboratively to move ahead.  The workshop will end with a half-hour
wrap-up, which will review the issues and action items from the panel
discussions and establish priorities for further action.

The suggested outcomes include activities that can be done by ICSTI as a
whole, by ICSTI members working with other ICSTI members, and by ICSTI
members working with other groups interested in digital archiving.  The
outcomes may be joint projects or input to further discussions at national
level (the national libraries or the scientific academies) and
international levels.
