        From: Lise Jaillant 
        Subject: Deadline extended. AHRC conference "Archives, Access and AI: Working with Born-Digital and Digitised Archival Collections"

Archives, Access and AI: Working with Born-Digital and Digitised
Archival Collections
AHRC-funded International conference in London, 15-17 Jan. 2020

Please note the extended deadline for submitting an abstract: 10 June.
Confirmed speakers include Rachel Foss (Head of Contemporary
Archives and Manuscripts, British Library); Christopher "Cal" Lee 
(Professor at University of North Carolina Chapel Hill and Principal 
Investigator for BitCurator); Anthea Seles (Secretary General of the 
International Council on Archives) and many more.

How can we shed light on born-digital and digitised archives?
What is the role of automation and AI? How can we give greater access to
archives currently closed to the public? What are the best ways to
involve donors/ creators of born-digital archives, and work with them
in an active and collaborative way rather than as a passive part of
the deposit process?

This three-day conference in London (15-17 Jan. 2020) will bring
together archivists, humanities scholars, computer scientists and
policy makers to discuss the way we work with archives now. At a time
of rapid change, it is essential to harness the data revolution to
bring our cultural heritage from obscurity to light.

awarded to Dr Jaillant for "Survival of the Weakest: Preserving and
Analysing Born-Digital Records to Understand How Small Poetry
Publishers Survive in the Global Marketplace."
