Things are happening… Keynotes have been “picked”

Well you probably all wonder why everything turned so quiet on this blog after announcing the conference dates? Well we have been busy working in order to soon start posting news about opening keynote and invited keynotes. We now have narrowed it down to 10 names, including opening keynote. We will very soon start sending out invitations and will eagerly await the response and feedback from our chosen candidates. Name dropping of keynotes will start as soon as we have gotten a  100 %  confirmation in written form of there presence as a keynote on the conference.

Joost Hegle, NTNU University Library (chair), Norway

All emtacl12 videos now available through Vimeo. SIT DOWN AND ENJOY……..

The videos are “raw” film so everything being filmed is shown, meaning that on some presentations you actually have to skip a bit to get to the beginning.
Hope this is OK for you all, it’s like catching the moment, all the small talks, technicians flying to rescue etc.

Either from or through Vimeos Couch mode (alphabetical on first name for the Vimeo couch mode). If you press the info button you could easily scroll through the rest of the videos.

The videos are downloadable in the following formats:

If you access the videos from the chronological list you press the Clip info/download button but if you choose the Couch mode you actually have to exit the Couch mode and press the download button to get to the same menu.

What’s happening with the videos of the emtacl12 presentations?

Well it’s a  time consuming job converting the HD .mts format videos to a “liveable”/uploadable format that Vimeo Pro like and secondly it’s a matter of waiting for Vimeo to upload, process and present the playable videos and it’s also a matter of tagging and feeding information, but the light is being spotted in the end of the tunnel next to a big sign saying “Probably finished next week”.

Only link to emtacl12 presentations without emtacl12 programme details

See from the menu item called “presentations”. From that menu item it’s also a link to a PDF with clickable links to the presentations. The list is tried to be organized chronologically. Just the name of the speaker/speakers plus the title of the presentation is stated.
