The International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) is a community of academic and national libraries, research institutions, museums, archives, nonprofits and commercial organizations that are committed to interoperable image and media delivery on the web. Based on common application programming interfaces (APIs) for image and metadata delivery, IIIF has supported the development of world-class image delivery and comparison software, cultivating a growing and sustainable community model for interoperable image repositories and an improved user experience for researchers.

The 2017 IIIF Conference in The Vatican is intended for a wide range of participants and interested parties across the IIIF community, including digital image repository managers, content curators, software developers, and scholars, at libraries, museums, cultural heritage institutions, software firms, and other organizations working with digital images and audio/visual materials. The Conference will include lightning talks, workshops, discussion sessions, and presentations featuring:

IIIF implementations
Discovery of IIIF resources
Content communities (manuscripts, newspapers, archival content, etc.)

Technical specifications
