The goal of this program is to stimulate research that builds capabilities for long-term management and preservation of digital materials. As more research disciplines and societal sectors have come to rely on data-driven models and observational data, the archiving problem is growing, the shortcomings of current technologies have become apparent and the need to preserve historical material has become imperative. This program will support both technical and sociotechnical research topics. Candidate topics include: scientific data such as astronomy and the human genome, government material such as drug-testing records, private for-profit media such as film and music recordings, and public documents such as those associated with the government rulemaking process. Content may include text, databases, electronic documents, images, sound, video and other object types.
