Main themes of the conference:
‘The conference will focus specifically on the creation of public audiovisual archives and their sustainability, analysing and comparing across different domains where they emerge. Specific legal and technological questions involved in the creation of these new type of digital repositories will also be addressed (among others Intellectual Property Rights and the problems of the structuring of data collections, retrieval and metadata, new approaches in social tagging, and more) while attempts will be made to bridge between different disciplinary discourses and social contexts.’
