Call for presentations

IASA invites everyone engaged in or curious about the discovery, care, preservation and dissemination of our sound and audiovisual heritage, to join us in Germany’s vibrant capital city, Berlin, to explore the intersection of workflows and archival formats as manifest in new ways of thinking about, new ways of preserving and new ways of presenting our objects in the digital era.

***The Call for presentations closes on 24 February 2017 ***

  • Managing sound and audiovisual collections in an integrated manner
  • New workflows for arranging and describing collections
  • Intellectual property and rights management challenges & opportunities
  • Selection and appraisal – strategies for acquiring digital content
  • How are sound and audiovisual archives innovating in the digital era?

Programme to include papers, tutorials, and practical workshops.
