Call for presentations

Imagine the Future!

The Programme Committee for the IASA 2019 conference welcomes proposals representing a broad palette of archival and personal interests which are distinguished by their focus on sound and audiovisual documents. Subject areas might include musical recordings; historic, literary, folkloric, and ethnological sound documents; theatre productions; oral history interviews; news and broadcast materials; bio-acoustics; environmental and medical sounds; linguistic and dialect recordings; as well as recordings for forensic purposes. This year, IASA encourages presenters to envision the future of audiovisual content and to address concerns of interest for those who create, use, manage, and preserve such material.

The International Association of Sound and Audiovisual Archives (IASA) was founded in Amsterdam in 1969 to function as a medium for international co-operation between archives that preserve recorded sound and audiovisual documents. In 2019, we gather at the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision, one of the most prestigious audiovisual institutions in the world, to celebrate our past 50 years and to craft our future. All within easy reach of our founding city of Amsterdam. We welcome the inclusion of proposals for papers, plenaries, or workshops that reflect IASA’s history or future.

The programme will include papers, posters, tutorials, and on 3 October, practical workshops. Following the IASA conference in the same location will be the Joint Technical Symposium (JTS). IASA and JTS will share an exciting collaborative day of workshops on October 3, 2019. When deciding whether to submit proposals to IASA and/or JTS,  please consider the topics provided in the two conferences’ calls for proposals.

The call for presentations is now open. Please submit your presentation proposal using the online submission form below.

*** The deadline for submissions is 11th February 2019 ***
