Call for papers

ICA/SPP Conference in Berlin 28-30 October 2015

Web Archiving  - Social Media  - Communication Strategies

The World Wide Web has enabled an unprecedented era of knowledge sharing, creativity, innovation, and connection. It has also created new challenges for institutions whose mission it is to document and preserve contemporary knowledge and culture. Web archiving is the process of collecting portions of the World Wide Web, preserving the collections in an archival format, and then serving the archives for access and use. Web pages are increasingly dynamic, they are constantly changing. The explosive growth of the Internet and social medias have influenced not only the archives sector, but also the creators and users of archives.

The Conference will focus the discussion on:

·         The role of archives in the digital world

·         challenges and changes for the archives

·         archives confronting European regulation

·         The role of archivists and users

·         how should collections of documents be organized, described to facilitate access and what’s  their value

·         how internet-based research is transforming the historian’s and archivist’s work

·         digital history

·         digital publication

·         The role of National and International networks

·         National and International Archivist Portals, content and standardisation
