Call for Papers deadline extended

The deadline for the call for papers for IASA CONFERENCE & 4th ICTM FORUM Collaborating to preserve and safeguard audiovisual and related heritage has been extended to April 15th.

If you have not yet submitted your proposal, we encourage you to do it.

The IASA Conference and ICTM - IASA Forum are taking place at a time marked by great challenges involved in the digital preservation of sound and audiovisual collections, as well as the threat of loss of undigitised recordings. In addition, human migration, conflict and war and the exclusion of minorities pose threats to the safeguarding of cultural heritage. In the digital age, we wish to strengthen dialogue and collaboration to address the complex situation and preserve and safeguard the sound and audiovisual heritage of peoples of the world.

For the IASA Conference presentations on 11-14 September we invite proposals on the following themes:

  • A. Digital preservation in sound and audiovisual archives: new collaborative tools and strategies
  • B. Metadata and curation
  • C. Migration and sound and audiovisual archives
  • D. Collaborative ideas to protect sound and audiovisual heritage at risk
  • E. Research and dissemination
  • F. Diversity, accessibility, and inclusivity in archives
  • G. The past and future of archival studies and audiovisual archives in Türkiye and the Turkic World
