On Monday, June 24th, the University of Göttingen, Göttingen State and University Library, and the IIIF Consortium will host a special day-long IIIF Showcase to introduce newcomers to IIIF.
- If you are interested in engaging with other museum, library, archive and technical professionals…
- If you are ready to learn more about using and sharing your institution’s images…
- If you’d like to know more about IIIF…
…then we would love to have you join us at the IIIF Showcase. All are welcome!
Come join us for a day-long free event that will educate, inspire, and reinvent your technical infrastructure. The event is free, but space is limited. Please register early to guarantee yourself a spot! All event proceedings will be in English unless otherwise noted.
Who is it for?
The IIIF Showcase is an event for people new to IIIF to get an overview and discover the latest developments in a single event (though it offers something for everyone, so returning attendees are welcome as well!). It assumes no previous experience with IIIF and will cover the full gamut of IIIF from the basics to Showcases of the latest developments in the IIIF Community.
The Showcase will include:
- Introduction to IIIF
- IIIF Use cases, including Museums, Archives, Manuscripts, Teaching and Research, Audio visual and more
- Introductions to the IIIF APIs; Image, Presentation, Authentication and Search
- IIIF Viewers; Mirador and the Universal Viewer
- The IIIF Community and Consortium
- Fun with IIIF
- Audience discussion
The Showcase is a separate event but can be combined with a workshop ticket (€70) which would give you access to the sessions on Tuesday. Or, to get the full experience, the Showcase can be combined with a full conference ticket which will give you access to the workshops on Tuesday, and a reception and the main IIIF conference on Wednesday to Friday.
For accommodation and travel information please see the logistics page.
