The Joint Technical Symposium (JTS) is an international scientific and technical event dealing with
matters of particular importance to audiovisual archives and archivists. Organized every few years since 1983 by the member organizations now forming the Coordinating Council of Audiovisual Archiving Associations (CCAAA), it provides an opportunity for colleagues around the world and those interested in the field to meet and share information about the preservation of original image and sound materials.
FIAT/IFTA is a founding member of the CCAAA and participates in the organisation of the JTS. The next edition of the JTS will take place on October 3-5 in Hilversum (Amsterdam region), at the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision.
The Program Committee invites session proposals related to the 2019 theme “Preserve the legacy. Celebrate the future.” Proposals are welcome from all areas of archival practice, digital initiatives
and research in our fields. They should have a technology focus for either born-digital collections,
digitised collections or collections still to be digitised. The Program Committee suggests paper proposals to address one or more of the following topics:
- Big collections, big assets, big data
- Reformatting and restoring
- Programs and solutions
- Status and impact of technology
For more information about possible session types, proposal evaluation, and submission visit
the JTS2019 website. The deadline for proposals will be February 11, 2019 . The programme committee intends to send authors feedback by March 11, 2019 .
