Dear Colleague
I would like to call your attention to an event organised by the DELOS'
Digital Preservation Cluster (DELOS-DPC) and the Oxford Internet Institute
(OII): a talk on Building Preservation Environments by Reagan Moore
of the San Diego Supercomputer Centre on 17 February 2006, 15:00 - 16:30.
Those unable to attend the talk in Oxford can see a live webcast at:

Building Preservation Environments
Dr Reagan W Moore, San Diego Supercomputer Center
Date: 17 February 2006, 15:00 - 16:30

Location: Oxford Internet Institute (OII), 1 St Giles, Oxford, OX1 3JS
Attendance: This event is open to the public, if you would like to attend
please email your name and affiliation to [log in to unmask]

This event is run in collaboration with DELOS (NoE in Digital
Libraries) Digital Preservation Cluster, (http://www.dpc.delos.ac.uk)


Abstract:
Multiple projects in the US are using data grid technology to build
preservation environments. The concept driving this approach is the
recognition that at the point in time when new technology is being
incorporated in a preservation environment, both the old and the new
technology are present. The data virtualization mechanisms provided by
data grids make it possible to interact simultaneously with both
versions of the technology. A preservation environment based on data
grid technology inherently contains the functionality needed to manage
technology evolution. I will discuss the concepts used to implement
data grids (data virtualization, trust virtualization, latency
management, collection management, and federation management) and map
the concepts onto the principles used to manage preservation
environments (authenticity, integrity, and infrastructure
independence).


Biography:
Moore is Director of Data and Knowledge Systems at the San Diego
Supercomputer Center. He coordinates research efforts in development of
massive data analysis systems, data grids, digital libraries, and
persistent archives. Moore is the principal investigator for the
development of the Storage Resource Broker data grid technology, which
is used to support international shared collections. Moore has been at
SDSC since its inception, initially being responsible for operating
system development. Prior to that he worked as a computational plasma
physicist at General Atomics on equilibrium and stability of toroidal
fusion devices. He has a Ph.D. in plasma physics from the University of
California, San Diego, (1978) and a B.S. in physics from the California
Institute of Technology (1967).

I hope that you will be able to take part in the event, if not in person 
via
the webcast--http://webcast.oii.ox.ac.uk/?view=Webcast&ID=20060217_134
