April 20-23, 2004
Sponsored by the Society for Imaging Science and Technology
In cooperation with:
How will we recover our images and documents a year, a decade, a generation or a century from now? How we will store and preserve documents now so as to enable future access? How can we retrieve, recover and restore materials of personal and cultural significance?
The Archiving Conference 2004 will address the complex and widely varying topics in the field of archiving by bringing together technical experts *both* from industry and from cultural institutions (libraries, archives, and museums) engaged in long-term preservation. The goals are to benchmark or critique systems that might be in place to preserve our digital and hardcopy information, as well as to identify those areas where systems and technology are not yet up to the task, and further research is of high priority.
The conference will include invited presentations by recognized experts with extensive experience in this field, refereed papers, and a series of tutorials to cover the technical basics of archiving. Special keynote presentations are planned, including ones by Gordon Bell of Microsoft Research on his MyLifeBits research, and Clifford Lynch, Executive Director of the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI).
PROPOSED PROGRAM TOPICS
A full program of tutorials is scheduled for Tuesday, April 20, 2004.
