24 November - Workshop 2: Digitization of color photography

Keynote speeches 22-23 November:

  • The digitization of color negatives in the perspective of archival fonds; Bea Martinez, CTIM / Polytechnic University of Catalonia

  • Integrity of digital image; Frederik Temmermans, IMEC, Vrje Universitet Brussels

  • The gammification of photographic archives: a new scenario for access and citizen participation; Tomislav Ivanjiko, University of Zagreb


In addition to the programme of keynotes speeches, presentations and workshops, the conference includes a discussion space to reflect on the possibility of bringing photographic and audiovisual archives closer to new audiences. On the one hand, the prominence of the image in today's society and in various fields has been established, whether information, creation or interpersonal communication. On the other hand, the conversion of archives into digital spaces allows many barriers imposed by the media itself to be broken down and, at the same time, offers a series of possibilities for the dissemination and re-use that may be of interest to a much wider audience.
