International Congress and Convention Association
The International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) represents the main specialists in organising, transporting and accommodating international meetings and events, and comprises almost 1,000 member companies and organisations in over 90 countries worldwide. ICCA specialises in the international association meetings sector, offering unrivalled data, communication channels, and business development opportunities.
Girona City Council, through its Municipal Archive, is hosting and organizing the 2nd Annual Conference of the International Council on Archives, as approved by the General Assembly of the International Council on Archives, which met on the 24th of August 2012 in the Australian city of Brisbane. This event will coincide with the celebration of the 9th European Conference on Archives (ECA), organized every four years by the European Branch of the International Council on Archives (EURBICA). Also taking place at the same time is the 13th Image and Research Seminar, organized biennially by the Centre for Image Research and Diffusion (CRDI) of Girona City Council in conjunction with the Archivists Association of Catalonia (AAC), which will mainly focus on photographic and audiovisual documents.
All three events are grouped under a common title: Archives and Cultural Industries, in order to foster debate on a key issue for archives: the potential for the documentation that has been conserved in them to be a resource provider for the creation and consumption of culture among the population.
In order to address the needs and desires of the archives themselves, we have determined the functions of the new package together with them. Picturae has created a system with a very broad range of functionalities, without being complex. It is a user-friendly application to be used both for archival description as well as for the description of individual items. This means that there is room for the history of the archive as well as the content description of the collection. In addition, the new package offers the ability to import or compile thesauri, and offers archives full support for storage management. In developing the new package archives, we have been strongly guided by standards such ISDIAH, ISAAR (CPF), ISAD (G), Dublin Core, METS, SKOS and variousexchangestandards such as OAI-PMH, SRU and Open Search. The system is built on modern Open Source software, is completely web based and can be used in a private environment.
