Library of Congress, Washington, DC

Register here: Registration deadline: May 5, 2011

The Library of Congress will host a JPEG 2000 Summit on May 12-13, 2011. This program is being sponsored by the Federal Agencies Digitization Guidelines Initiative and supported by the National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program (NDDIIPP).

The objective is to bring together JPEG 2000 users, developers, and other interested parties for two days of education, information sharing, discussion and planning related to the current state of JPEG 2000 in the cultural heritage community. The meeting is aimed at members of non-profit and Federal institutions engaged in digitizing cultural heritage materials.

The summit will include an international group of experts and representatives from institutions currently employing JPEG 2000 or researching the benefits/risks of using it as part of their workflow.

The program starts with a half-day tutorial on JPEG 2000 on the morning of the first day, followed by two sessions of presentations. The program will conclude on the afternoon of the second day with a small invitation-only working session to identify key objectives and collaborations for broadening the understanding and use of the technology.

**There is no fee to attend, but registration is required due to limited seating. Participants may register for the tutorial, for the presentation sessions, or for both.
