Call for Papers
The sound, audiovisual and moving image collections of the world have grown
in response to the varied needs of their collectors, creators and users,
and reflect the diversity of their owners, curators and managers. There is
much about these sound and moving image archives that is unique and
specific only to those formats or collections. However, there is an even
greater range of issues and concerns that all share in common, where
convergence is a possibility, standards are communicated and mutual
solutions are shared. This conference will be a forum to investigate and
discuss all these issues, and many more besides.
The IASA Executive Board invites presentation proposals for the 41st IASA
Annual Conference, to be held jointly with AMIA (Association of Moving
Image Archivists) at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel in Philadelphia November
2-6, 2010, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.
At the AMIA-IASA 2010 joint conference there will be 4 parallel sessions,
two on typically AMIA-issues, one on typically IASA-issues, and one with
subjects of common interest (attendees from both AMIA and IASA will be free
to attend all sessions). In your application, please indicate which
session(s) your proposal is intended for.
Presentation proposals are due 23 February 2010. Papers, panels and posters
are welcome on all issues to do with sound and audiovisual archives, but
especially on the following sub-themes:
- Archives, Libraries and Museums. Does convergence work?
- Challenges of Multimedia in archives (convergence or multiplication of
- The user and the archivist (convergence of roles)
- Social networks (converging to where the user is)
- One nation, one world catalogue (convergence of access)
- Turning archives into assets
- Collection preservation and workflows, (convergence of practice?)

- Organisations and associations (convergence of colleagues)
