Panel Presentation: Link Rot
Feedback form is now closed.

Link rot (also called link death, link breaking, or reference rot) is the phenomenon of hyperlinks tending over time to cease to point to their originally targeted file, web page, or server due to that resource being relocated to a new address or becoming permanently unavailable. This panel will be an informative discussion around the Internet’s ability to preserve information and knowledge.
