A World of Opportunity: Audiovisual Archives and the Digital Landscape


The digital landscape is where sound and audiovisual archives must be in order to survive. As we rush to complete that move and as the volume of born digital media proliferates, it is easy to miss opportunities that might otherwise enrich our content, expand its use, or conserve precious resources. With your innovative and paradigm-shifting contributions, this year's conference will leave no stone unturned and no opportunity unexplored. Please submit your proposals for presentations that reflect the sub-themes below by using the presentation submission form online at:


Topics should address these sub-themes:

  • Born digital audiovisual content
  • Continuing issues surrounding digitization (dematerialization)
  • International access to intellectual property
  • Planning for and supporting large files and large data storage
  • Content integrity and authenticity
  • Metadata management for internal and external uses​
  • Managing obsolescence in formats, software, and hardware

The closing date for proposals is 18 March 2016.

Note: Accommodation, traveling, and subsistence are the responsibility of the presenters. All attendees, including presenters, are expected to register and pay the conference registration fee.
