(ARSC) posts the following message.

--- 2015 ARSC CONFERENCE: PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA ---

The 49th annual ARSC Conference will be held May 27-30, 2015 at the Westin
Convention Center Hotel, in downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The
conference is hosted by the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh.

The city offers many attractions including the Carnegie Science Center,
Heinz History Center, Duquesne Incline, Children's Museum of Pittsburgh,
National Aviary, Bayernhof Music Museum, and the Frick Art and Historical
Center. Historic Kennywood amusement park is about a 35-minute drive from
the hotel. For distinctive local flavor, Pittsburgh's historic Strip
District, named for its narrow confines between the Allegheny River and
Grant's Hill, is just one mile from the hotel. Great cultural offerings
found here include the famous Saturday Farmers Market, plus intriguing
ethnic and specialty shopping, and tempting local cuisine.

A block of rooms has been reserved for ARSC conference attendees at a
special rate of $139 (plus 14 percent tax) for a standard room with one king
or two double beds, single or double occupancy. Contracted dates at the
Westin are May 26 until May 30 (with Sunday departure). ARSC group rates
will be honored three days prior (Memorial Day weekend) and three days after
these dates, subject to availability.

The deadline to make reservations at the Westin is May 5, 5:00 p.m. EDT. You
are strongly encouraged to make your reservations as early as possible,
since all rooms are held on a first-come, first-served basis.

To reserve a room, follow the reservation instructions at:

On Thursday evening, music film historian Mark Cantor is thrilled to present
a program of performance clips highlighting new film discoveries and
restorations, as well as films featuring musicians active on the Pittsburgh
music scene.  Mark is the curator of the Celluloid Improvisations Music Film
Archive, one of the nation's largest collections of 16mm films that focuses
on American popular music and dance. 

Many of the films that will be shared in the ARSC presentation have not been
screened in years, if not decades. While the focus will be jazz, other
genres of music -- country music and Western Swing, blues, vaudeville, jazz
dance, and pop -- will also be generously represented.  

On Friday evening, be sure to bring your technical questions to "Ask the
Technical Committee."

FROM IDEA to DELIVERABLE: PLANNING and EXECUTING YOUR GRANT-FUNDED PROJECT
Your archive or library has an important collection of audio recordings, and
you've come up with a project to process it. You're thinking of writing a
grant to help fund the project, but you're not sure how to begin.

On May 27, the Education and Training Committee is presenting a
pre-conference workshop that will help you find answers to all your
questions. This day-long workshop can help you understand and find your way
through the complicated and complex world of writing grant proposals and
completing a grant-funded project. The workshop includes an afternoon tour
of The MediaPreserve. Bus transportation will be provided.

ARSC is offering this workshop in a live-streaming, online version for those
who are unable to attend in person. An archived version will be made
available to all registrants, for a limited time.

A separate registration fee applies for the workshop. The in-person workshop
is limited to 50 participants. For more information, see:
http://www.arsc-audio.org/conference/2015/pre-conf_workshops_intro.html

ALL HANDS on DECK! AUDIOTAPE PLAYBACK WORKSHOP
On May 27, the ARSC Technical Committee presents its Audiotape Playback
Workshop. Do you deal with analog reel-to-reel tape? This hands-on workshop
will get you rolling on best practices related to audiotape handling,
identification, and playback. A lecture on the history and principles of
magnetic recording will cover the theoretical basis. A hands-on session with
experienced engineers will show you how to identify and play back audio tape
on the beautiful Studer decks at The MediaPreserve. New this year: Advanced
techniques in our "Experts' Room." This workshop is limited to 16
participants.
