A World of Opportunity: Audiovisual Archives and the Digital Landscape

The digital landscape is where sound and audiovisual archives must be in order to survive. As we rush to complete that move and as the volume of born digital media proliferates, it is easy to miss opportunities that might otherwise enrich our content, expand its use, or conserve precious resources. With your innovative and paradigm-shifting contributions, this year's conference will leave no stone unturned and no opportunity unexplored. Please submit your proposals for presentations that reflect the sub-themes below by using the presentation submission form below.

Topics should address these sub-themes:

  • Born digital audiovisual content
  • Continuing issues surrounding digitization (dematerialization)
  • International access to intellectual property
  • Planning for and supporting large files and large data storage
  • Content integrity and authenticity
  • Metadata management for internal and external uses
  • Managing obsolescence in formats, software, and hardware

Important: All accommodation, travelling and subsistence costs are the responsibility of presenters. All attendees, including presenters, are also expected to register and pay the registration fee in advance of the first conference day. IASA members may apply for a IASA Travel Award to assist with their travel costs.

Enter below details of your proposed presentation (whether a paper, poster, panel session, workshop or tutorial) for the IASA 2016 conference, then press the 'Submit my presentation proposal' button located at the bottom of the page. You will receive a confirmation email upon successful completion of the form.

Papers may be submitted in English. Proposals will be reviewed by the conference organising committee. Authors will be notified by 15 April whether their proposals have been accepted.

If you have any questions about submitting a presentation, please use the contact form.
