As web archiving practice enters its third decade – curating, preserving and making historic web content accessible to both researchers and the public – the IIPC Web Archiving Conference comes to Australasia for the first time. The Conference presents a programme of presentations, workshops, panels and posters that reflects both the mature achievements in web archiving over the past 20 years as well as the range of challenges for this critical task of accurately collecting and preserving our online culture and discourse. The Conference programme ranges over national, community and collaborative collecting initiatives, developments in the vital tools and processes to capture and preserve online content and initiatives to support access and facilitate research using web archives. But web archiving is not just about technologies, and the Conference programme also delivers presentations and workshops on crucial social, ethical and legal issues that affect web archiving practice now. This is a rich and diverse programme that reflects both the history of a mature field of practice, research and development and the current challenges and issues that will shape the progress and future of web archiving and how effectively we record our online world.

Paul Koerbin and Jan Hutař, Programme Chairs
