The purpose of the conference is the exchange of know-how and experience among experts in the field of research, study, recording, preservation, digitization and promotion of cultural heritage and the discussion on current and upcoming developments in this field, both in Greece and worldwide.
The need calls for a joint participation of scientists, researchers, professionals, policy makers and authorities at a national and international level in order to organize a nationwide effort for preserving Greek CH. This need rises from the very nature of the Digitization of cultural wealth, which is inherently an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary process.
Therefore, the ultimate purpose of the 2nd Pan-Hellenic Conference on Digital Heritage – Euromed2017, is to bring together as many carriers with different backgrounds to achieve the highest level of mutual collaboration and understanding of the needs and requirements of this process.
