The 2024 International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) Annual Conference will be held in Los Angeles, California June 4–7, 2024, and will be hosted by UCLA Library, Getty, and the IIIF Consortium.

IIIF is a set of open standards for delivering high-quality, attributed digital objects online at scale. It’s also an international community developing and implementing the IIIF APIs.

Funded by a 67-member global consortium, III F is leveraged by aggregators, research institutions, national libraries, archives, museums, software companies, and digital agencies around the world.

The event is intended for a wide range of participants and interested parties, including digital image repository managers, content curators, software developers, scholars, and administrators at libraries, museums, cultural heritage institutions, software firms, and other organizations working with digital images and audio/visual materials.

In addition to the Conference, held June 4 and 5, the event includes a free Showcase on June 7. The Showcase is meant to introduce newcomers to IIIF, and those seeking to learn how IIIF is used in a variety of contexts. The conference features plenary presentations and sessions about IIIF implementations around the world, including cutting edge use cases and demonstrations.
