1st Workshop on "Archives in the digital age: standards, policies and tools"
(2nd Call for Papers)

Part of the IC-ININFO 2013 - 3rd International Conference on Integrated
Information, 5-9 September 2013, Prague, Czech Republic

Submission deadline: June 30, 2013

Proceedings will be published in Elsevier Procedia Social and Behavioral


The description and dissemination of the archival collections has changed
over the last twenty years, mostly due to the standardization of the
archival description. The use of the archival standards and metadata
etc., has expanded to many archival services worldwide. Currently, we find
ourselves in a turning point where new versions of these tools have been
created and new technologies are being used in the archives world, such as
Linked Open Data and Semantic Web tools. Moreover, the latest years
archivists are facing the challenge of the definition of a conceptual model
for the archival description, similar to the ones defined in the
bibliographic and museum world.

The aim of this session is a) to document the use of standards and schemas,
present their implementation, and their strong and weak points, b) to
introduce all the current efforts related to the definition of a conceptual
model for the archival description, c) to observe the use and evaluation of
archival information systems, and d) to present the use of Social Media in
Archives and the policies followed by them. The objective is to generate a
community in which archivists, information and computer scientists working
on relevant issues will meet and exchange ideas about the main open issues.


We welcome papers that deal with, but are not limited to, the following

   - the use and evaluation of standards, metadata schemas and content
   description rules implemented by the Archives in order to describe,
   disseminate and preserve their material in the digital world
   - the implementation of principles, policies, guidelines and best
   practices as part of the digitally manipulated archival tasks
   - the use and evaluation of archival information systems
   - the implementation of Semantic Web technologies in Archives
   - the use of Social Media in Archives
