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 2023 takes place in Oslo, Norway, the week of June 19-23, and will feature final presentations from the CHANGE—Cultural Heritage Analysis for New Generations—program.


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

All papers presented at Archiving 2023 are published Open Access.
