Conference: Born Digital and Cultural Heritage

The International Born Digital and Cultural Heritage conference will be held on 19-20 June, 2014, at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image.  The event is one of the outcomes of the ‘Play It Again’ project, which is focused on 1980s Australian and New Zealand game history and preservation.  It is a collaboration between Flinders University, University of Melbourne, Victoria University of Wellington (NZ), the Australian Centre for the Moving Image, the New Zealand Film Archive, and the Berlin Computerspiele Museum.

The program features an exciting line-up of papers from scholars, artists, and practitioners from Finland, U.S., U.K., Germany, Poland, Japan, Samoa, New Zealand and Australia on topics from: demoscene history to manuscripts, archiving tweets to the ‘right to be forgotten’, Japanese game preservation efforts to artist’s apps, and much much more.

Our two keynote speakers — Dr Henry Lowood (Stanford, U.S.), and Dr Anne Laforet (ESADS, France) – are experts in digital game and net art preservation, respectively.

All the program details, plus abstracts and speaker’s bios are on the conference website:
