Practical Information

The conference will be held at the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision located in Hilversum, the Netherlands.

The Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision (NISV) is a cultural-historical organisation of national interest. It collects, preserves and opens the audiovisual heritage for as many users as possible: media professionals, education, science and the general public. In addition, the institute develops and disseminates knowledge in the area of audiovisual archiving, digitization and media history. NISV joined the IIPC in 2016 and co-organised their first webinar with the IIPC in February 2017.


NISV's building is accessible to people in wheelchairs or with any other mobility restrictions. All the conference rooms are accessible by lift and have wheelchair-accessible seating. 


Information about hotels and block booking will be available closer to the conference.
