Call for Abstracts – ARC Conference 2022

The Australasian Registrars Committee (ARC) is now calling for further abstracts for the next conference – ARC (30 something) happening from Thursday 10 – Friday 11 March 2022 at the National Film and Sound Archive in Canberra, Australia (Ngunnawal, Ngunawal & Ngambri Country).

 We have a few spots to fill and want to hear from you! Have you been working on a project OR researching any of these topics OR know someone who is?

 · disaster response

· born digital collecting

· ‘green’ initiatives in registration

· repatriation

· anything and everything in registration in our ‘new normal’ for e.g. digital paperwork, virtual couriering, virtual exhibitions, and condition reporting

 We know you all have something to say about those topics!


To express your interest in presenting a twenty-minute paper, please submit a biography of no more than 80 words and a 100-200 word abstract outlining your topic to [email protected] by 17 September 2021.

 Speakers are most welcome to present live at the ARC2022 Conference at the National Film and Sound Archive, Canberra.

 We welcome presentations from conservators, curators, technicians, students, volunteers etc. working in the above fields of interest. You don’t have to be an ARC Member or a Registrar / Collection Manager based in Australia, New Zealand, Asia or Oceania to participate but it certainly helps!

 Have any questions or something else in mind for the 2022 conference? Please drop us a line via [email protected]


We look forward to hearing from you.
