Call for presentations

*** The Call for presentations has closed  ***

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.

This year's conference theme, Integration and Innovation: Bringing workflows and formats together in the digital era, will touch upon and delve deeply into the following sub-themes:

  • 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.
