10.02.2021 | Veranstaltungshinweis, Call for Papers/Participation

Das Opencast Summit findet dieses Jahr vom 06. bis 09. April online statt und wird von der Technischen Universität Graz organisiert. Auf der internationalen Tagung haben Teilnehmende die Gelegenheit, sich über das Open-Source-Videomanagementsystem Opencast sowie über die Nutzung von Videos in der Lehre zu informieren und auszutauschen. Für die Veranstaltung wird um die Einreichung von Beiträgen zum Einsatz von Videomaterial in Bildungskontexten gebeten. Dies ist noch bis zum 22. Februar 2021 möglich.

The Opencast community is an international collaboration of individuals, higher education institutions and organizations working together to discuss, develop, define and document best practices for the management of audiovisual content in academia. The conference is dedicated to the use and management of academic video in general and Opencast in particular. While the focus of the event will be on Opencast, the community seeks participation from related domains and projects.

Therefore educational designers, researchers, service providers and others working with video in academic settings are invited to share expertise and experience across the field and explore opportunities to collaborate in related projects.
The conference committee is looking for proposals in the following tracks:

  1. Academic video
    - Teaching and learning with video, pedagogy of video, learning analytics
    - Research
    - Technology
    - Video strategies and policies
  2. Opencast adopters
    - Experience in using Opencast for lecture capture/video management
    - Ideas for new features in Opencast
    - Solutions to further develop Opencast
    - Integration scenarios
  3. Opencast developers
    - Presentations and meetings with a focus on technical details, likely to see developers, system administrators, A/V-technicians and those interested in issues related to these domains.

There are different types of proposals for these tracks:

  1. Lightning talk: 10 minutes including 5 minutes Q&A
  2. Presentation: 30 minutes including 5-10 minutes Q&A
  3. Birds of a feather (BoF): 1-2 hours. Suggest a topic you would like to discuss with others.
  4. Workshop: 2 hours – half-day. Bring forward a topic you would like to introduce others to or discuss with others.

Alternatively, feel free to suggest a BoF or a workshop for a topic you would like to know more about. Ideally, you can designate/suggest someone to host, but feel free to make this a task for the programme committee.

Deadline: Please submit an abstract of your proposed presentation and the format you would like on the conference website by 22 Februar 2020.

Further information on the conference and the call for proposals can be found on the website of the event website.
