"Bit Rot" – A Disaster Waiting to Happen
Dr. Cerf will discuss the problem of curating digital content on the order of centuries.

The problems are both technical and legal.

  • Tutorials and sessions for beginners, to train you and your staff on basic practices and implementation techniques for creating international software
  • Learn recommended solutions to difficult problems or sophisticated requirements from industry leaders and experts in attendance
  • Find help from tool and product vendors to get you to market quickly and cost-effectively
