In my PhD thesis I'm working in the field of digital archives for long term preservation and especially migration thereof. Because of several circumstances (obsolete file formats, changing hardware and software technologies) migration has gained practical importance over the last years. Starting from an appropriate notion of information we try to develop a formal model allowing for conclusions w.r.t. preservation of defined information during migration processes. In particular, these conclusions shall be provably correct and on a qualitative level.
