Fifth Workshop on Data Preservation and Long Term Analysis in HEP

chaired by Cristinel Diaconu (Faculte des Sciences de Luminy), David South (DESY), Stephen Wolbers (Fermilab)
from to (America/Chicago)

This is the 5th Workshop of the Data Preservation in HEP ICFA subpanel. At this workshop the  the common effort will be continued as described in the DPHEP blueprint. The organization will be consolidated and the specific projects will be reviewed. In addition, there will be updates from the various participating experiments on their efforts on data preservation and talks from other fields about subjects related to data preservation.

EVO will be provided for the sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday.  The meeting is booked in the community Universe with the name "DPHEP Workshop". Phone bridge ID are available under request.

Streaming available on Monday as:

Group Pictures available here.
