Call for Papers: IS&T Archiving Conference 2004

Hyatt Regency Hotel
San Antonio, TX, USA
April 20-23, 2004

Sponsored by the Society for Imaging Science and Technology

In cooperation with

    CNI     Coalition for Networked Information
    DLF     Digital Library Federation
    OCLC    Online Computer Library Center, Inc.
    RLG     Research Libraries Group
    SPIE    International Society for Optical Engineering
    TAGA    Technical Association of the Graphic Arts

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).

Paper Submission: Prospective authors are invited to submit original
papers for presentation in any of the technical areas listed below.
750-1000 word abstracts are due October 15, 2003. If you wish to
