CURATEcamp: AVPres

What is CURATEcamp?:
For a detailed description, see: http://www.curatecamp.org/
CURATEcamp has been run two different ways: As an unconference and as an OpenAgenda meeting. CURATEcamp can be run as an unconference, also known as a user-generated conference or a BarCamp. There are no spectators at CURATEcamp, only participants. All attendees are expected to give a demo, present a talk, drive a discussion, or participate in a panel or roundtable.

What is special about CURATEcamp: AVPres?
There are two differences: first, this CURATEcamp will be focused on audiovisual materials, specifically digital collections; the hoped-for outcome being a hackathon with coder & developer participants in association with this year's AMIA (Association of Moving Image Archivists) conference in Richmond, Virginia in early November. Second, the CURATEcamp will be conducted via Google Hangout. Each "hangout" will a topic chosen via CURATEcamp wiki voting, and then other participants can join if they see that a hangout pertains to their interest- basically each Hangout acts as a conference room.

Who participates? Why would I want to participate?
Audiovisual archivists or archivists with digital moving image materials in their collections. The idea is that CURATEcamp will allow participants to talk about issues around and challenges in digital curation that can be addressed concretely by code and developer participation during a hackathon in November in Richmond. Additionally, for film or analog focused moving image archivists, there will be "mediators" in the sessions who will navigate questions around digital preservation generally, if that is not your area of expertise.

You can either attend the camp virtually (via our Google Hangout On Air stream) or in person at a local participant site. Google Hangouts on Air allow a maximum of 10 live participants—these will be comprised of the host sites listed below. All other participants are encouraged to follow a live broadcast of this discussion, participating and articulating questions via IRC.
