About the IS&T Archiving Conference

Since 2004, the Imaging Science and Technology (IS&T) Archiving conference has been bringing together an international community of technical experts, managers, practitioners, and academics from cultural heritage institutions, universities, and commercial enterprises, to explore and discuss state-of-the-art imaging, digitization, preservation, and access for 2D, 3D, and AV materials, including documents, photographs, books, paintings, videos, and born-digital works.

The interdisciplinary focus of the conference creates a rich environment for information exchange. In addition to presenting the latest research results on digitization and curation, Archiving investigates new technologies, strategies, and policies, as well as reports on successful projects that can serve as benchmarks in the field and explores different platforms and ways of visualizing collection data, allowing for deeper connections with collections.

This year’s Archiving includes beginning to advanced short courses, virtual behind-the-scenes tours, exhibits, a technical papers program, and vibrant networking opportunities. Short Courses will occur from 23-27 May, and the Technical Program will occur from 7-10 June.

All courses and technical talks are presented live, with real-time text commenting and live Q&A.
