About the Archiving Conference

Since 2004, Archiving 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, manuscripts, photographs, bound volumes, 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 data, allowing for deeper connections with collections.


Archiving includes beginning to advanced Short Courses; virtual Behind-the-Scenes Tours; Exhibits; a robust Technical Papers Program; and vibrant networking opportunities. Short courses take place online 23-27 May, with the online technical program 7-10 June.

  • Talks are presented live, with real-time text commenting and live Q&A.
  • Access to Recordings of live sessions until 30 September 2022 allows you to accommodate your schedule, as well as to go back and review technical program details.
  • Program is designed to all you to participate each day, while still having time to attend to other work and personal responsibilities. Events generally fall within 10:00 – 15:00 EDT/16:00 – 21:00 CET.
  • Online exhibition and exhibitor programs allows you to engage with vendors.
  • Virtual Behind-the-Scenes Tours gives you access to workflows, collections, and colleagues.
  • Course and All-Access Passport registration options offer substantive discounts on fees.


Authors are invited to submit abstracts for peer-review in technical areas related to 2D, 3D, and AV materials in, but not limited to:

Digitization / Imaging
  • New developments in digitization technologies and workflows
  • Advanced imaging techniques and image processing, e.g., multispectral imaging, 3D imaging, software
  • Large scale/mass digitization and workflow management systems
  • Quality assurance and control of digitization workflow, e.g., data, targets, software, automation, integration
Preservation / Archiving
  • Management of metadata; adapting to and crosswalking cataloging
  • Archival and preservation models and workflows
  • Emulation, containerization, and normalization
  • Formats, specifications, and systems
  • Computational techniques for analyzing and processing collections at scale
  • Repository assessment; standards and guidelines for preservation processes, archiving methods, new ISO standards, adapting institutional processes to meet new external standards
  • Email and web archiving

Access / Presentation
  • Dissemination/use of digitized/imaged materials, e.g., rights management, crowdsourcing, data mining, data visualization
  • Deep learning algorithms to improve search results; AI, machine learning, etc.
  • Data visualization and automated programming interface (API) e.g. IIIF, Tableau, Storymaps
  • Open access and open data strategies
  • Integration of linked open [usable] data (LOD/LOUD)/Open source solutions
  • New methods for storytelling
  • Online exhibits and associated metadata
  • Prototypes and work-in-progress

Management and Assessment

  • Policies, strategies, plans, and risk management; repository assessment
  • Work models: adaptation and opportunities in a hybrid model
