Every half year the ICARUS community gets together at the so-called ICARUS−Meeting for the purpose of welcoming new members and updating each other on the latest developments, project and work group progress. The meetings also serve as venues for exchanging experiences and knowledge about archival work and for envisioning and developing ideas for new projects and future cooperation.
It is at these meetings that the international network of institutions comes together, and the people behind the institutions meet face-to-face. We as a community are convinced that these get-togethers where information and ideas are shared professionally contribute to ICARUS’ success to a great extent: it is at these meetings where personal relations are established and trust in each others capabilities is built and deepened, so that thriving and sustainable synergies can flourish in the long-term.
Each ICARUS−Meeting is hosted by a member institution and organised in close cooperation with the ICARUS headquarters in Vienna (AT). The dates for these 3-day meetings usually fall in late spring and autumn. For detailed information on upcoming meetings, please take a look at our Event Calender below.
Under the motto “The Age of Technology: Documents, Archives and Society” a wide range of speakers from the Iberian Peninsula will share their experiences and expertise with us. The spectrum of speakers is expanded by further presentations from colleagues of our ICARUS network. The conference promises a truly multi-facetted insight into current projects and developments of the European archival landscape in the digital age.
Furthermore, we will celebrate our 15th anniversary of Europe´s virtual charters archive – Monasterium with a talk show. Colleagues involved in the development of the Monasterium portal will take a look back at the beginnings and discuss options and plans for future developments.
Also, thanks to a cooperation with the Archives Portal Europe Foundation, we can offer a workshop for students within our meeting: On 24 October, Ana María López Cuadrado (Country Manager Archives Portal Europe, Ministerio de Educación Cultura y Deporte. Subdirección de los Archivos Estatales, ES) will conduct a workshop for students and scholars in Spanish, explaining how to conduct research using the Archives Portal Europe. As the largest online archives catalogue in the world, this Portal is a one-of-a-kind innovative tool for conducting archival research online: the Portal allows simultaneous research in hundreds of institutions throughout Europe, and it supports multilingual research.
