The year 2013 looks promising indeed. But first allow me to extend my best wishes for a year filled with health, love and professional success. To start off this new year, the members of the Board of Directors invite you to regularly consult our website for updated information, including the submission deadlines for the various projects related to Rio next August. Before March 4, you can send me the title and summary of your papers, along with a biography. A jury composed of Board members will evaluate your proposals and advise you of their acceptance by April 4 at the latest. This year’s theme, I remind you, relates to the museum’s powers of social transformation, and more specifically, to the contributions of digital strategies.
Many of you have inquired about the registration process for FIAMP 2013. As was the case last year, you must send me the complete competition registration package, including:
The registration package must be mailed to the following address:
President of AVICOM
Chief Operating Officer
Pointe-à-Callière, Montreal Museum of Archaeology and History
350 Place Royale
AVICOM cannot guarantee that the winning projects will be presented during the awards ceremony, which is subject to the technical resources available in Rio.
The deadline for submission of documents is May 6, 2013.
I do hope that you will turn out in large numbers at our meeting next August in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Your papers are welcome, especially since a session will be organized in collaboration with the Education Committee dealing with the relationship between the museum’s educational mission and communication technologies.
