After a first successful conference on the contextualisation of audiovisual material in October 2010, EUscreen now organizes a second international conference on Use and Creativity in the audiovisual domain.
The programme is now in its final stage and participants are encouraged to make their registrations and travel arrangements.
On the first day of the conference the keynote speakers:
Lynn Spigel from Northwestern University will be speaking about 'analogue nostalgia'
Dagan Cohen will talk about how the Upload Cinema initiative brings curated online video to the big screen
Paul Ashton will talk about the possibilities for online audio-visual media to push education forward
Jérôme Bourdon will present his research into global media and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Aubéry Escande, Kajsa Hedström, Johan Axhamn and Peter B. Kaufman will present different case studies on user engagement with online audiovisual heritage.
The second day will consist of two workshop sessions. In the morning the topic of a user community will be tackled, focusing on how EUscreen services can be exploited in learning, research, leisure/cultural heritage and creative reuse. The afternoon session will treat funding opportunities and sustainable business models for the digitisation of audiovisual material.
