Over the past two and a half years the OPF has successfully organised six hackathons. We would like to thank the IISH, the University at Cologne, DPC, the Danish National Archives, CINES and the University of Freiburg for their hospitality, active participation and co-operation running these events.

Hosting OPF hackathons has proved to be an excellent opportunity for the community to demonstrate their commitment for long-term access to digital content.

Our hackathons are a great platform for practitioners and developers to work on real digital preservation challenges and they help to sustain a lasting digital preservation community after the success of Planets. 

We would like your input to help us plan our future hackathon and webinar events programme...


We'd like to hear from you if you have a suggestion for a hackathon theme, and would be willing to work with us to shape the agenda and activities. Please fill out that 'what, where, when and who' in the table below. If you only have a 'what', please still let us know your idea and we can try to find a venue. If you can offer us a venue, but don't have a theme in mind, please let us know and we can work with you to pick a topic, or match your venue with a lonely 'what'. Once we have a few suggestions bellow, we will ask the community to indicate if they'd be willing to contribute to or attend some of these events.
