About the Archiving Conference

Since 2004, Archiving has brought an international community of technical experts, managers, practitioners, and academics from cultural heritage institutions, universities, and commercial enterprises together 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 2024 will take place in Washington, DC, April 9-12.


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
  • Standards and guidelines for secure and sustainable preservation and archiving methods
  • Management of metadata, formats, specifications, and systems
  • Archival and preservation models and workflows
  • Techniques for analyzing and processing collections at scale

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
  • Open access and open data strategies
  • Integration of linked open data and source solutions
Management and Assessment
  • Sustainability in archiving and digitization
  • Policies, strategies, plans, and risk management; repository assessment
  • Work models: adaptation and opportunities in a hybrid model
  • Remote collaboration and hybrid work

All papers presented at Archiving 2024 are published Open Access. LEARN MORE / SUBMIT

Papers from past Archiving conferences are published on the IS&T Digital Library/Archiving.
