Announcing IS&T's Archiving Conference 
Meeting Announcement and Call for Papers
April 20-23, 2004
The Hyatt Regency Hotel
San Antonio, Texas, USA

Sponsored by:  The Society for Imaging Science and Technology http://www.imaging.org
   Held in conjunction with TAGA's Annual Conference, April 18-21, 2004

This conference brings together technical experts to discuss the complex and widely varying topics on archiving. Techniques for preserving, cataloging, indexing and retrieving images and documents in both digital and human readable formats are subjects that will be covered in detail. Our goal is to benchmark systems to preserve our digital and hardcopy information for the future, as well as to identify those areas where systems and technology are not yet up to the task, and further research is of high priority. Accordingly the interfacing of digital and hardcopy preservation strategies, issues of format obsolescence, and storage media technology are of particular interest.

Preserving our heritage is important and so much of that heritage is captured day by day in images and documents. Employing economical methods to save some fraction of that material for future generations is vitally important. We are concerned, furthermore, not only with how we will recover our own images and documents a generation hence, but how we can retrieve, recover and restore the culturally and historically important imagery of past generations.

Prospective authors are invited to submit original papers for presentation in any of the technical areas listed in the "proposed program topics" section of this brochure.   If you wish to submit a paper, please use the web-based form and process described on the IS&T Archiving Conference website at the following address: 

Then look for a link to the Author's instructions.



The Archiving Conference 2004 will include: invited presentations by recognized experts with extensive experience in this field, refereed papers, and a series of tutorials to cover the technical basics of archiving. Special keynote presentations are planned, including ones by Gordon Bell, Microsoft Research on his current MyLifeBits research and Clifford Lynch, Director of the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI).
