The call for proposals for the International Internet Preservation Consortium (IIPC) Web Archiving Conference (WAC) is now open!
To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Consortium’s formation, we are excited to announce that the call for proposals for the 2024 Web Archiving Conference is now open. The National Library of France (BnF) will be the host of the 2024 General Assembly and Web Archiving Conference which will be held on April 24-26, 2024.
The annual IIPC conference brings together the world’s experts in web archiving. While it usually attracts the international community of web archiving practitioners, it is intended for an even wider audience including archivists, curators, software developers, researchers interested in working with digital content, and digital preservationists.
This year’s conference title is “Web Archives in Context.” The WAC 2024 Program Committee invites proposals related to five broad themes: Digital Preservation, Curation, Tools and Workflows, Research and Access, and Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. More details about the suggested topics and submission guidelines are available on the conference website: https://netpreserve.org/ga2024/cfp/.
We would like to thank our program committee for their efforts in organizing the CfP, as well as the delegates of the 2023 conference for their valuable feedback. Their input has been taken into consideration while determining this year’s topics for proposals.
The deadline for submitting proposals is by the end of the day on September 24th (AoE/UTC-12) 2023.
For updates, please follow the conference website (https://netpreserve.org/ga2024/) and Twitter (@netpreserve, #iipcGA24, #iipcWAC24, #iipc20Years). Get inspiration from the final WAC 2023 program, recordings & slides here.

We look forward to seeing you in Paris in April!
