        Subject: SAVE THE DATE: IIIF in New York City, May 10 - 13

The International Image Interoperability Framework (http://iiif.io) has set the dates for its next major event, to be held in New York City May 10-13 (see http://iiif.io/event/2016/newyork/ for details).

At many institutions, IIIF and its associated tools are becoming a core component of Digital Humanities infrastructure, particularly where comparative analysis and annotation of digitized images is involved. IIIF has its origins in the study of digitized medieval manuscripts, but its applications to humanities scholarship have expanded greatly.  The event in New York will showcase many examples of IIIF supporting work in the humanities, and we welcome and encourage participation by the global DH community.

The detailed agenda for the week is still in development, and we’ll send a follow-up message soon. Generally speaking the agenda is:

Tuesday, May 10
