After several months of busy preparations FIAT/IFTA is proud and happy to announce that the 43rd edition of its World Conference will take place in the city of Dubrovnik, Croatia, from Tuesday 22nd until Friday 25th October. The conference venue will be the Rixos Hotel, a magnificent five star accommodation situated offering a spectacular bay view within walking distance of the world-famous old town of Dubrovnik.
The title of the 2019 FIAT/IFTA World Conference is “Champions of Value and Trust. AV Archives in the all-media world.” It reflects excellently what is at stake today at the crossroads of content and rights management, media archiving, storytelling, audiovisual preservation and artificial intelligence.
With a 500 year history of diplomacy and a strong independent identity, the city of Dubrovnik is steeped in a heritage which has been a foundation of knowledge and culture for centuries. Audiovisual archives form the essential link between past and future in our media world and will bring the knowledge, cultural value and latest thinking to the fore. The beautifully restored medieval city of Dubrovnik is an ideal setting in which to debate and examine these latest new challenges and possibilities.
Further information about the conference can be found on the conference pages. More details about the Call for Papers will be announced soon. Keep an eye on all FIAT/IFTA channels to stay updated!
