Session of ECLAP 2013 Conference on Educational Services for the Performing Arts



SESSION OF ECLAP 2013 Conference

Educational Services for the Performing Arts
Session co-Chairs:  Peter Eversmann & Josefien Schuurman


 

In this session we will focus on education in the performing arts and digital heritage – (best) practices and tools. We will do so both from the more theoretical perspective (studying education in performing arts “from the outside”) as well as from the practitioner’s point of view: the use of digital heritage and IT in training performing artists. We will concentrate on tertiary education, but papers on post-academic or secondary education are invited as well.

This session will continue to explore practices in the field of educational IT for the performing arts. In particular we ask the question how performing arts teachers and students can be engaged in using educational IT and digital cultural heritage. What do these users actually want and need? What participation strategies are successful? How can the gap between IT innovation and performing arts education be bridged?

Topics can include:

  • Educational sustainability strategies
  • Participation strategies for education
  • Community building for education
  • User needs and perspectives
  • (Theoretical) approaches on digital heritage in performing arts education
  • Multimodal interactive systems
  • Static versus dynamic performing arts archiving
  • The future of publishing in performing arts studies
  • IT and teaching audiences, etc.

All those involved in education within the performing arts (teachers, program directors, heads of schools, practitioners, IT developers, educational researchers, librarians, etc.) are cordially invited to participate, especially performing artists involved in education and/or archiving.

Deadlines:

  • Submission of Sections: 21 December 2012
  • Submission of papers to the Session: 31 January 2013  6 March 2013
  • Response to the Authors: 15 February 2013 POSTPONED

SESSION OF ECLAP 2013 Conference

How to Deal with IPR Issues for Performing Arts Content
Session Chair: Lotte Belice Baltussen 


 


The transition from analogue to digital offers organizations the opportunity to explore new business models. The key to business modeling is creating value in a wider business context. This task includes defining the relation with suppliers and customers, as well as choosing the most successful channels. Cultural entrepreneurship manifests itself in various sectors, ranging from the creative industry, education, tourism, and leisure. In the 2012 ECLAP conference, we explored business models in the cultural heritage domain, in this conference we would like to focus on four more specific topics:

Topics can include:

  • Best practices in connecting social networks to heritage websites. We would like to identify the best ways to create a strong and loyal online following, and new ways of engagement with users through leveraging these networks.
  • Measuring online success. Museums and cultural organizations in general have been investing a considerable amount of resources in online infrastructures, such as, institutional websites, e-newsletters, and social media. One of the most pressing challenges that organizations face in regards to these technologies is: How to measure their effectiveness?
  • Creating a sustainable online presence for performing arts: business models for long-term sustainability. Especially in the case of projects that are not governed by established entities (museums, theatre companies), but rather by consortia. Sustainability can be based on generating revenue, for instance, by sponsoring, contributions from members, donations, and so on.
  • Practical experiences of clearing rights of performing arts collections for online publications. For instance through arrangements with collecting societies, or by making arrangements with rights holders directly.

We are soliciting papers on a wide range of topics relating to business modeling, including:

  • Setting up and maintaining a social media strategy
  • Strategies for business modeling innovation in the heritage domain
  • Public-private partnerships
  • Managing IPR
  • Collecting usage data and other metrics
  • Managerial change
  • Collaboration with entities outside the sector

Deadlines:

  • Submission of Sections: 21 December 2012
  • Submission of papers to the Session: 31 January 2013  6 March 2013
  • Response to the Authors: 15 February 2013 POSTPONED
  • Camera ready version in PDF with the correct format: 28 February 2013 POSTPONED

SESSION OF ECLAP 2013 Conference

Trust and Quality in Cultural Heritage Digital Libraries
Session co-Chairs: Emanuele Bellini & Jana Wilcoxen


 


The present information society is highly dependent on digital resources. The various cultural heritage digital repositories store intangible objects and entities and make them available to users through telematics networks: we download tons of resources from the net, we base our cultural and scientific researches mainly on those resources retrieved and collected from Internet, we share and exploit contents on multi device and in different domains, but several challenges emerge for the current scenario.

For instance:

  • How can we verify the authenticity and provenance of the documents?
  • How can we Trust the repository that preserves such resources in a long term perspective?
  • What are the main Quality issues and how can we improve the Quality of the resource curation?
  • How can we assess this Quality?

Indeed, Trust embraces constructs of ethics, morals, emotions, values, and natural attitudes and combines a variety of fields. Similarly Quality, as identified by David Garvin, depends on the domain of analysis (philosophy, economics, marketing, and operations management) and from the point of view adopted (user, product, process, value, etc.).

Even if they are complicated and multifaceted concepts, difficult to frame in a single definition, there are several standards, tools, and best practices that attempt to respond to the Trust and Quality demand in the Cultural Heritage domain by addressing the issues at the levels of content, metadata, repository, and policy.

This session aims to explore the mature or early adopted solutions for content, metadata, repository, and policy also coming from neighbor domains like Libraries, Archives, Museums, and Science that can fit with the Trust and Quality requirements of the performing arts domain.

The objectives are:

  • Transferring “know how” to performing arts institution decision makers;
  • Gaining a better understanding of the current state of the art and the best practices;
  • Providing practical solutions for enhancing and assessing Trust and Quality;
  • Identifying which solutions are already “on the shelves” and those that are more promised and might become the next best practices.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

Trust:

  • Standards, Repository certification solutions;
  • Authenticity and Provenance tools;
  • Reputation tools, Resource Certification;
  • Repository Risk assessment;
  • Persistent Identifier solutions;
  • Resource Integrity tools;
  • Policies.

Quality assessment:

  • Assessment framework and tools;
  • Quality certifications;
  • Standards;
  • Metadata metrics and measurement tools;
  • Indicators.

Enhancing Quality:

  • Workflow management tools;
  • Metadata validation tools;
  • Content life cycle management tools;
  • Policies;
  • Semantic based tools.

Deadlines:

  • Submission of papers to the Sessions: 31 January 2013  6 March 2013
  • Response to the Authors: 15 February 2013 POSTPONED
  • Camera ready version in PDF with the correct format: 28 February 2013 POSTPONED
  • Conference: 8-10 April 2013
