What is CURATEcamp?

For a detailed description, see: http://www.curatecamp.org/ The format of a CURATEcamp is informed by the spirit of an unconference, BarCamp, or OpenAgenda meeting. The day's agenda is generated by the attendees of the CURATEcamp, who engage in dialogue together. 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 this version of CURATEcamp?

  • We'll be focused on audiovisual materials, specifically digital or digitized collections. A desired result of this camp is that it can generate topics and projects for a hackathon with coder/developer participation, in association with this year's AMIA (Association of Moving Image Archivists) conference in Richmond, Virginia November 6-9, 2013.
  • CURATEcamp AVpres will be a collaboration between several physical sites, but we'll virtually convene via Google Hangout and IRC for an introductory "keynote," lightning talks, breakout sessions, and closing session.
  • Interested groups of participants are welcome to convene at a physical site and attend the CURATEcamp. Each site needs to have a dedicated "mediator" who facilitates group discussion via the Google Hangout and does "tech support" for that site (these can be two different people). The program will consist of both lightning talk presentations and breakout sessions that enable attendees at disparate sites to virtually assemble and continue conversations.

Who participates? Why would I want to participate?

Audiovisual archivists, archivists, librarians, conservators, or anyone who deals with the preservation and access of digital moving image materials. The initial idea is that the CURATEcamp will allow AV archivists to discuss issues and challenges in digital curation, share use cases, and begin to stitch together existing tools and solutions. Our goal is to articulate needs that can be concretely addressed with coder and developer participation at an AMIA 2013-related hackathon. There will be "mediators" in the sessions who will navigate questions around digital preservation generally, if that is not your area of expertise.

Technical logistics

Google Hangouts on Air allow a maximum of 10 live participants, and broadcast a live web stream of the proceedings. For some sessions the live Hangout participation will be restricted to the physical sites, but several slots for non-site participants will open up in the breakout sessions. A Google+ account is needed to participate with ARCHIVED VIDEO and audio, but not required to view the live stream.

Non-site participants are encouraged to follow the Hangout on Air video stream of the discussions, participating and articulating questions via IRC. Moderators and attendees at the physical sites will be monitoring the IRC discussion, and will make sure these questions and concerns are articulated and addressed.

If you are unfamiliar with IRC, take a look at this ☞ brief introduction. We've set up 5 IRC channels: a main chat room and four channels for the concurrent breakout sessions. If using an IRC client the server is chat.freenode.net, or you can use your browser and connect to webchat.freenode.net. IRC channel names are below in bold:

  • #curatecamp_avpres_5 – opening and closing plenary, lightning talks
  • #curatecamp_avpres_1 – breakout session #1
  • #curatecamp_avpres_2 – breakout session #2
  • #curatecamp_avpres_3 – breakout session #3
  • #curatecamp_avpres_4 - breakout session #4
If you are the point person for organizing a participant site, see here for technical recommendations for physical site set-ups.

How will this Camp's format function? What is the schedule?

Due to the short duration (~5 hours) and remote nature, we'll will try to organize things as much of the program as possible in advance. Proposed topics for discussion can be submitted when your complete the registration form described below. Before the Camp itself, we will identify topics and consolidate suggestions that address the same issue. We'll then open up voting on these proposed topics, as well as using them as prompts in our call for lightning talks.

Our goal is to be as inclusive as possible, within the technological and logistical constraints of a networked unconference. The Camp schedule will reflect both the physical and networked nature of our format, with conversation at the physical participant sites supplemented by discussions and questions via IRC.

Individual breakout sessions will have designated notetakers, with shared documents used to centralize information.

How can I participate?

Everyone interested in participating in CURATEcamp AVPres should fill out this registration form. The form asks whether you want to volunteer as a host site, attend at a local site, or participate as a "lone arranger". If you wish to attend one of the physical participant sites listed below, please drop the site's contact person an email after you complete the registration form.

There is a question in the form that asks what topics you are interested in discussing at the camp. It is important that you be as specific as possible, the more detail the better. As we receive proposed topics, we will document them on the wiki, and later open up voting on which topics we want to discuss in greater detail.
