The AVICOM Committee is pleased to announce that Julien Anfruns, the Director General of the International Council of Museums (ICOM), will be in Montreal on October 10th to officially launch the AVICOM Montréal 2012 Conference. In addition, he will do us the honour of presenting a prize during the FIAMP festival, the international competition for audiovisual productions, image and sound that was created by AVICOM.
The AVICOM Committee has decided to extend the Early Bird Rates for the conference in October taking place in Montreal. This way, more delegates will be able to benefit from the preferential rate and attend the annual conference and the FIAMP festival. Plan to attend this prestigious conference to hear about the latest trends in museology and technology from academics, museum experts and multimedia professionals from around the world. To take advantage of our special rates, please register before June 30, 2012.
Reserve your accommodations now for the AVICOM Montréal 2012 Conference & FIAMP.2012 Festival. Our guests will benefit from a special rate.
The call for the FIAMP competition is now closed. Thank-you to all the museums and institutions who submitted their audio-visual and multimedia productions. We will publish the official selection on-line soon. The works of the finalists will be presented to the delegates at the conference before the official awards ceremony, to be held on Thursday, October 11, 2012 at the Canadian Centre for Architecture.
