The EYE International Conference 2018 will also celebrate the 15-year anniversary of the MA programme Preservation & Presentation of the Moving Image (P&P) at the University of Amsterdam (UvA), whose approximately 150 alumni are active in museums, archives and universities around the world. EYE, the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision and the Living Media Arts (LIMA) are partners in the program offered at UvA. The conference will be an occasion for P&P alumni to reconnect, and for students and staff of audio-visual archiving and curation programmes worldwide to get in touch and reflect together on past and future endeavours.

The EYE International Conference 2018 will take place at EYE from Saturday 26 May to Tuesday 29 May 2018. Attendees are also invited to the EYE Collection Day, highlighting recent projects from the EYE collection, on Saturday 26 May.
