Proposals for the IIIF Conference

02.03.18 Call

IIIF is an agreement framework for making images accessible in a uniform way. Thanks to the protocol, images can be viewed in any compatible viewer and images can be shared online. The 2018 IIIF conference will be held in Washington between May 21st to 25th with support from the Library of Congress, the Smithsonian Institution and the Folger Shakespeare Library. After the Pre Conference workshops hosted by the Smithsonian on Monday May 21st, the programme moves to the Library of Congress, with the IIIF Showcase on Tuesday May 22nd, the IIIF Conference Plenary on Wednesday May 23rd and the IIIF Conference parallelsessions on Thursday May 24th and Friday 25th. Proposals for short and more extensive talks can still be sent in until 2 March 2018.

PACKED vzw also takes IIIF as a guiding framework for the project Blauwdruk gedistribueerd beeldbeheer.

The Washington Planning committee are looking for proposals for talks in the following forms:

• 7 to 10 minute lightning talks to be given in a plenary session

• 20 minute presentations (plus 5 mins questions)

• 60 or 90 minute discussions

Please submit an abstract of no longer than 500 words for your presentation or discussion by Friday the 2nd of March using the conference tool.

Final versions of the accepted abstracts will later be made available on the conference website.

The conference committee has selected the theme of “Utility” for the 2018 conference.  How can we improve the utility of existing IIIF guidelines, tools, and applications?  We welcome submissions related to the theme and in particular would welcome presentations in the following areas:

• IIIF and archival collections

• IIIF implementations from outside Europe and North America

• IIIF synergies with regional and national ongoing digital libraries, museums and archives initiatives

• IIIF enabled collaboration

• Discovery of IIIF resources

• Audio/Video IIIF implementations

• IIIF content communities (museums, manuscripts, newspapers, archival content, etc.)

• Emerging use cases for IIIF technical specifications

• IIIF-compatible software and experimentation

• Training materials and documentation

If you have any questions please contact the Washington Program Committee

Thank you!
