Call for presentations

Conference theme:

Access and Accessibility - Archival Policies and Barriers in the Age of Global Information Exchange

Open and equal access to information is in high demand, yet may be impeded by social, cultural, and economic barriers. The question of access at the same time encourages discussions on the technical, legal and practical modes of accessibility.

The programme committee for the IASA 2018 conference invites proposals focused on the prospects and limitations of global and local access and accessibility to audiovisual archives as well as on issues of discovery, care, preservation and dissemination of our sound and audiovisual heritage.

Possible sub-themes include:

  • Connecting users, materials, and communities
  • Using semantic technologies to aid description and access
  • Language diversity and oral history collections – best practices of accessibility
  • Digital preservation methods for efficient access

The programme will include papers, posters, tutorials, and practical workshops.

The call for presentations is now open. Please submit your presentation proposal using the online submission form below.

*** The deadline for submissions is: 23 February 2018 ***
