European XFEL

Holzkoppel 4, 22869 Schenefeld, Germany

The new dates for the Third Workshop on Scientific Archives are 22-23 June 2021.

The Committee on the Archives of Science and Technology (CAST) of the ICA-SUV are exploring options on how to best deliver the workshop, taking into account restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Our current expectation is that the workshop will be a hybrid format (on-line/in-person). The delivery format of the workshop will be decided by, at the latest, March.

On 22nd June - 23rd June 2021, European XFEL hosts a 1.5 day workshop for discussion on the topic of scientific and technical records and archives.

The Workshop is organised by the Committee on the Contemporary Archives of Science and Technology (CAST) of the International Council on Archives/Section on University and Research Institution Archives (ICA/SUV).
