Christoph Becker. Challenges in preservation (planning). In Automation in Digital Preservation. Dagstuhl Seminar Proceedings, Volume 10291, pp. 1-5, Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik (2010)


This short paper attempts to highlight some challenges to be tackled by DP research in the next years, taking as a starting point the perspective of preservation planning. These challenges are in short: (1) Scalability (up and down) requiring (2) measurement of relevant decision factors, in turn requiring (3) benchmarking and ground truth. (4) Quality-aware emulation. (5) Move from the current closed-systems approach to open structures that accomodate evolving knowledge. (6) Move from post-obsolescence actions to 'longevity engineering'.
