At the FIAT/IFTA World Conference, we dissect media-tech-content crossroads. Archivists, devs, strategists, researchers, and the industry unite for informed exchanges: keynotes, presentations, workshops, inspiring dialogues and the convivial atmosphere that the FIAT/IFTA World Conference is well known for.
Our Keynote sessions will be given by:
- Carmela Troncoso, Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne.
- Tom De Smet, Nationaal Archief (National Archives of the Netherlands).
The programme is correct at the time of publishing. Still, organisers reserve the right to alter it if and when deemed necessary, and the FIAT/IFTA Office reserves the right to make changes without prior notice to the parties concerned.
The juries evaluated every proposal for this year’s edition and shortlisted 11 nominees for the four main categories. Get to know the nominees by visiting the Archive Achievement Awards 2023 page!
Join us on Thursday, October 19th, from 8 PM to 10 PM for the Awards Show & Screening. During this social event, we will present our shortlisted nominees and announce the winners for all four Archive Achievement Award categories.
We’ll also be presenting the Lifetime Honorary Award. The event will culminate with the screening of one of the projects from last year’s Archive Achievement Awards.
You can reach Locarno in just over 10 hours from London and Berlin; from Paris, it’s 8 hours, and Rome, less than 6 hours! Find your route and tickets via RailEurope, Trainline or Omio. For rail connections in Switzerland use SBB.
Due to a train accident, the Gotthard Base Tunnel is heavily damaged and will stay closed for passenger trains until after the FIAT/IFTA World Conference. Trains travelling on this route must take a detour, adding one extra hour to the journey. The travel planner of the Swiss Federal Railway (SBB) already takes this disruption into account.
