Topics at the symposium may include: The way digital records have transformed the role of traditional archives and museums; de facto online archives created by users and organizations; the expansion of social engagement and complexity through Web 2.0; and the intrusion of increasingly expansive copyright regimes.
The Symposium aims to bring together archival and cultural scholars, professionals from private and public cultural organizations, mainstream and independent creative artists who make digital media and artworks, and specialists from major information technology and media firms engaged in digital asset management, conservation, and preservation.
