EVA Conference Berlin 2011: Electronic Media & Visual Arts
The 18th Berlin EVA conference offers a discussion forum about online access to cultural heritage. Results of research and development will be presented with a strong reference to their usage. As a member of the international EVA Conferences Network the event offers opportunities for networking and international cooperation.
Europeana, Deutsche Digitale Bibliothek, Googleartproject - online access to cultural heritage is granted today by national and international web-portal initiatives. Beyond the narrow borderlines of traditionally specialized disciplines and institutions these are claiming to interrelated access to the rich diversity of cultural contexts and formats from Museums, Archives and Libraries. Content aggregation, automated indexing methods and semantic enrichment perform an endless continuum of a virtual "Musée imaginaire". Sustainability, participation and networked services are the linchpins of the strategy. Mashups, APIs, CBIR, Semantic Web and Web 2.0 constitute the technical framework. The EVA conference brings together the memory institutions with researchers of the information and communication technologies, IT - specialists and the public administration sector.
