  ARCHIVING 2020: ONLINE CONFERENCE HIGHLIGHTS

Archiving 2020 was online this year and recordings of the short courses and technical talks are available for viewing until 1 August.
You can still register to view the conference content.


The Archiving 2020 Program has been revised and updated to best accommodate remote participation. Here are some highlights:

  • Expanded across more days, but fewer hours/day, to allow you to participate, but still attend to other work and personal responsibilities. Courses are scheduled within 10:00 – 15:00 EDT/16:00 – 21:00 CET; talks end by 14:00/20:00.
  • Reduced registration fees to help support the cultural heritage community during this time. Please Note: Registration for a "live" event closes 24 hours before the event begins.
    For example, for a short course occurring on Thursday, you must register by 9:00 EDT on Wednesday to be guaranteed live attendance. You may still have access to the recording of a class or the technical sessions should you register after the 24-hour cut off. Cut off is 9:00 EDT the prior day for all events.
  • No conflicts between short courses. Two offered per day, 7-15 May. Passport registration options offer further discounts on fees.
  • Technical papers are presented 18-21 May, with plenty of opportunities to engage with other attendees in real time and via chat rooms.
  • Access to recordings of courses and technical program—including Q&A and group discussions—until 1 August 2020 allows you to accommodate your schedule, as well as to go back and review details.
  • Online exhibition allows you to engage with vendors throughout the program.
  • Text commenting live during talks and Q&A; topical comment threads active until 1 August 2020.
With reduced fees, plus no need for funds to travel, we see this as a great opportunity for more cultural heritage professionals from around the world to be able to participate in Archiving 2020 and we look forward to sharing this experience with you.

Join an international community of technical experts, managers, practitioners, and academics from cultural heritage institutions, universities, and commercial enterprises, to explore and discuss the digitization, preservation, and access of 2-dimensional, 3-dimensional, and audio-visual materials, including documents, photographs, books, paintings, videos, and born digital works.
