The IS&T Archiving Conference brings together an international community of imaging experts and technicians as well as curators, managers, and researchers from libraries, archives, museums, records management repositories, information technology institutions, and commercial enterprises to explore and discuss the field of digitization of cultural heritage and archiving.
The conference presents the latest research results on digitization and curation, provides a forum to explore new strategies and policies, and reports on successful projects that can serve as benchmarks in the field.
Archiving 2017 is a blend of short courses, invited focal papers, keynote talks, and peer-reviewed oral and interactive display presentations, offering attendees a unique opportunity for gaining and exchanging knowledge and building networks among professionals.
Prospective authors are invited to submit abstracts describing original work for presentation at the 2017 conference in technical areas related to the general fields of:
- New developments in digitization technologies and workflows for two- and three-dimensional (2D/3D) materials as well as audio visual (A/V) materials
- Digitization equipment and software
- Techniques, e.g. multispectral imaging, 3D imaging
- Multispectral image processing
- Large scale/mass digitization
- Quality assurance, e.g. targets, software, automation and integration in workflows
- Formats for preservation and access
- Embedded metadata
- Standards and guidelines related to digitization practices
- Archiving, curation, and management of digitized and born digital materials, e.g. images; A/V materials; digital art policies, strategies, plans, risk management
- Management of metadata
- Dissemination and use, e.g. rights management, crowd sourcing, data mining
- Business and cost models for digitization and archiving
