The 2018 SUV/CAU Conference Committee has extended the deadline for proposals until 28 February 2018.
The ICA/SUV is pleased to be working with the Conferencia De Archiveros Universitarios Españoles (CAU) to organize a joint conference from 3-5 October in Salamanca, Spain.
The conference theme is centered on achieving a better understanding of how, and in what ways, archives contribute value to their parent institutions. It will explore how those challenges may vary based on the authorizing documents and institutional setting of the archives, and it will consider opportunities and challenges against the backdrop of new technologies, digital humanities, user communities, and standardization of professional practices.
Proposals are invited on the following topics:
- Identity of University Archives
- Archives in the University Community
- Management of University Archival Records
- The Dissemination of University Archive Heritage
To make sure that you have enough time to prepare a strong proposal for the conference program, the submission deadline has just been extended. But do not delay too long–all proposals must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than February 28, 2018.
Also, please note that the editors of ICA’s journal Comma will devote a special issue in 2019 to include the conference proceedings. All confirmed speakers will be invited to submit their papers, with revisions appropriate for publication, by 31 December 2018. Conference presentations must be in English or Spanish, but when you prepare your revision for Comma it may be in English, Spanish, or French.
