Future Perfect 2012 

The Digital Preservation by Design theme of the Future Perfect 2012 conference sought to stimulate discussion about how, when and why influencing the design of systems can support digital preservation and ultimately ensure that today’s information is available tomorrow.
Successful preservation of digital content relies on the integration of preservation requirements into the design of systems. Digital preservation experience and research has progressed and the size and diversity of digital content has grown, and we must actively influence the development of a wide variety of tools and workflows across the information life cycle to ensure that preservation requirements are met.
Future Perfect 2012 connected across disciplines and domains and was of value and interest to information technologists, records and information managers, enterprise content architects, developers, academics, librarians and archivists.
The conference was aimed at those with an interest in digital preservation, digital continuity, open standards and open data (particularly government data), metadata, public sector information, technology management and archiving.
