Call for Papers
The first-ever International Conference on Digital Archiving in the Arab World (DA|AW), held in Abu Dhabi in 2019, organized to spark off a series of conferences on the subject. At DAAW|2024, we aspire to address it through the more focused standpoint of the digital management and preservation of data and documents, without foregoing a broader reflection, concerning both historical and future documents and data in danger whether physical or natively digital.
The principal objective of DAAW|2024 is to bring together scholars and practitioners for discussions about archiving challenges in the Arab world, hence no discipline or approach is proposed. The questions are broad, and all possible responses are appreciated. Yet, for the purpose of orient submissions, a number of preferred themes are below:
- 1. Preserving The Past| Heritage at risk
- Methods, technologies, standards and tools
- Preservation and access| the role of institutions
- Big Data
- Archiving the present| Natively digital objects
- Personal Digital Archives (PDA) into context
- Archives and Arts Digitization
- Archiving & sustainability

The Records Management and Archival Science Unit in the History Department at Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi (SUAD) in collaboration with the National Library and Archives (NLA) of UAE is excited to announce its hosting of the sixteenth Archival Education and Research Institute (AERI) from October 07 to 11, 2024, at the SUAD campus and NLA sites in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
AERI aims to elevate archival studies by establishing a vibrant community of researchers, educators, students, and professionals. It focuses on guiding doctoral students and academic staff in thesis writing, grant proposals, publishing, and career growth. Moreover, it prioritizes curriculum advancement in archival studies across various educational levels and promotes ongoing research through presentations, workshops, and collaborative activities, both within and beyond national borders. All submissions that resonate with AERI’s goals will be considered.
We are currently open to receiving proposals aligned with AERI’s objectives, which can be found at https://aeri.website/. Submissions can vary from short papers (15-minute presentations) and panel discussions (1.5 hours, featuring 3 or more speakers) to educational and practical workshops focused on pedagogy, curriculum, methodologies, and technology (either half-day or full-day sessions). We also welcome poster presentations and lightning talks (exclusively for students). Each proposal should consist of a 300-500 word abstract and a brief bio of the presenter(s). For panel discussions or collective submissions, each member should submit a proposal under a unified title and abstract.
To accommodate broader participation, AERI 2024 will offer a select number of virtual presentations for those unable to join in person. Considering the extensive effort and costs required for a fully hybrid event, these virtual opportunities will be limited. All plenary sessions at AERI 2024, however, will be recorded and made accessible afterward.
AERI serves as a platform for showcasing ongoing research and education in archival studies. Presentations of work in progress, as well as workshops on methodology and teaching, particularly those aimed at doctoral students and early-career academics, are highly encouraged.
Additional logistical information will be provided in due course.
