Media in Motion Symposium

McGill University's Documentation and Conservation of the Media Arts Heritage (DOCAM) Research Alliance and Media@McGill have call for papers out for their "Media in Motion: The Challenge of Preservation in the Digital Age" to be held October 29, 2008 at McGill University (Annual International DOCAM Summit). The topics include but are not limited to:
  • Archival Practices
  • Challenges of Audio, Film, Video, and Digital Media Preservation
  • Cultural Influences, Impacts, and Considerations
  • Cultural Property Law
  • Digital Preservation and Cultural Memory
  • Digitization of the Humanities
  • Effects on Artistic Practices
  • Ethical, Social, and Philosophical Concerns
  • Preservation Strategies and Techniques
  • Future Trends and Directions
I found this information on the DIGLIB mailing list, but I can't find the CFP on the DOCAM site, so here is the link to the mailing list announcement.
