2021-07-14: Web Archiving Conference (WAC) 2021 Trip Report

Image
This was our ( Travis , Kritika , and Himarsha ) first time attending IIPC’s Web Archiving Conference (WAC). Usually this conference is an in-person event (IIPC General Assembly and WAC trip reports: 2011 , 2012 , 2013 , 2014 , 2015 , 2016 , and 2017 ), but this year the conference was held online . Remo was the conference platform for this event. The presentations for this conference were pre-recorded and shown during the conference, and instead of having presentations for the papers submitted, there were Q&A sessions. The invited panels were delivered live during the event. When more presentation slides and videos become available we will add the links to the blog post. Archive-It also wrote a blog post for this conference. Day One Sessions 1 through 10 were held on the first day of the event. We attended the sessions that were scheduled during times that were ideal for North American time zones. The sessions we focused on for the first day are sessions 6, 8, 9, and 10. Chas
