The #EWAVirtual conference PROGRAMME brings together historians, digital humanists, media scholars, social scientists, information and IT professionals, computer scientists, data consultants, librarians and archivists from Ireland, the United Kingdom, Europe, Canada and the United States.  

The #EWAVirtual conference is also the first web archiving conference to be held in Ireland.

Find out how and why the World Wide Web is being archived, and how scholars are using web archives for research at the first international Engaging with Web Archives conference. 

‘Web archiving is the process of collecting portions of the World Wide Web, preserving the collections in an archival format, and then serving the archives for access and use’ (IIPC). Due to serious concerns about the loss of web-born heritage, there has been a continuous growth of web archiving initiatives across the globe. 

REGISTRATION is now open. There is no charge. Everyone is Welcome
We are also excited to announce the following keynote speakers for #EWAVirtual

  • Professor Niels Brügger:  Professor in Media Studies, and head of the Centre for Internet Studies at Aarhus University in Denmark.
  • Professor Jane Winters: Professor of Digital Humanities and Pro-Dean for Libraries in the School of Advanced Study at the University of London.
