We are pleased to announce the 36th edition of the ongoing technical symposium, The Reel Thing, to take place in Portland during the AMIA 2015 conference.  The Reel Thing will be a half day event on Wednesday, November 18 and will be held at the Whitsell Auditorium in the Portland Art Museum.

As with all editions of The Reel Thing, we focus on the wide range of critical issues facing archivists, technicians, asset managers and curators of image and sound in the current media/digital landscape. Our objective is to expose our audience to the current thinking and most advanced practical examples of progress in the field of preservation, restoration and media conservation, and to create a common ground for discussion and evaluation of methodologies so that informed decisions can be made about when and how to deploy both traditional and emerging technologies. Presentations consist of a brief analytic explanation of the project, digital/film/video/audio examples, and a question and answer period.
