ARCHIVING 2023 @ University of Oslo Aula

The 2023 edition of Archiving conference is going to be held in Oslo from 19th to 23rd June 2023, at NTNU Norwegian University of Science and Technology, with the aim of bringing together an international community of technical experts, managers, practitioners, academics from cultural heritage institutions, universities, and commercial enterprises, to explore and discuss state-of-the-art imaging, digitization, preservation, and access for 2D, 3D, and AV materials, including documents, manuscripts, photographs, bound volumes, paintings, videos, and born-digital works.

The interdisciplinary focus of the conference creates a rich environment for information exchange. In addition to presenting the latest research results on digitization and curation, Archiving investigates new technologies, strategies, and policies, as well as reports on successful projects that can serve as benchmarks in the field and explores different platforms and ways of visualizing data, allowing for deeper connections with collections.

CIPA 2023 @ Florence,Italy
Jun 25 – Jun 30 all-day
CIPA 2023 @ Florence,Italy

CIPA2023, the 29th CIPA-HD biennial Symposium, will focus on “Documenting, understanding, preserving Cultural Heritage. Humanities and digital technologies for shaping the future”.
The Conference will explore the digital and green dimensions required to handle the complexity of Cultural Heritage management and to come up with new solutions to the challenges of reducing anthropogenic and natural risks.
The effects of Climate Change and pollution negatively impact the vulnerability of Heritage. Unfortunately, there is a constant need for timely and effective intervention in crisis areas for damage analysis, initial intervention, and subsequent recovery planning. Extraordinary Socio-Political developments demand a greater awareness of the civil importance of this safeguarding commitment.
CIPA2023 intends to combine scientific, technological, and humanistic expertise and promote interactions with the institutions in charge of conservation and restoration. Thus, the aim is to create documentation systems that address the entire life cycle of Artifacts, Archaeological sites, Historical buildings, and man-made Landscapes using new digital technologies. Risk reduction and preventive and sustainable conservation models must be developed, supporting cultural participation, accessibility, and enhancement of cultural diversity and expression.

“International Conference  on Cultural Tourism Advances” @ KU Leuven, Brussels Campus Odisee Building,

While exact estimates are difficult to make, it has repeatedly been mentioned that approximately 40% of all European tourists make a destination choice based on the cultural offerings. This leads to significant economic effects and has further strengthened the view of cultural heritage as a strategic resource for its economic impact, but also for its role in creating and enhancing social capital and achieving the goals of smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. At the same time, economic effects have been distributed unequally – often being more prevalent in urbanized areas – and the exponential growth of tourism (notwithstanding the dip during the Covid-19 pandemic) created issues of both over-and underexploitation.

The goal of this Conference is to further understanding of the sustainable development potential of cultural tourism by focusing on successful policy interventions, new cultural tourism trends, advances in visitor management systems, and new business and/or governance mode.

Expected contributions include technical papers (presenting recent advances on Cultural Tourism) and project papers (describing their major outcomes in the Cultural Tourism domain).

Topics (not restricted to):

  • cultural tourism policy
  • cultural tourism management and governance
  • dynamic visitor management systems
  • contribution to regional development and resilience
  •  transformative tourism
  • sustainable development indicators
  • forecasting; virtual museums
  • augmented reality and other digital visitor-centric tools
  •  digitization for preservation
  • public accessibility

Selected and presented papers are expected to be published by a Springer book reflecting the breakthroughs and future perspectives of Cultural Tourism.

Important Dates:

  • Submission: 14th April 2023
  • Notification of Acceptance: 19th May 2023
  • Camera-ready for publication: 16th June 2023



International Conference on Cultural Heritage and New Technologies @ Vienna City Hall
Nov 15 @ 9:00 – Nov 17 @ 17:00
International Conference on Cultural Heritage and New Technologies @ Vienna City Hall

The association CHNT-ICOMOS Austria was founded in early 2021 to organise the annual Conference on Cultural Heritage and New Technologies. This year the conference is about Cultural Heritage as a Resource – Technologies for the Paradigm Shift in Archaeology, Conservation and Education.

The topics may include: Cultural Heritage — New Technologies — Climate Change — Digitalization — Documentation — Preservation — Archaeology — Climate Adaptation — Sustainability — Resilience — Education — Role of Civil Society Organizations — Information Infrastructures — Monitoring

The discussions that unfolded around the 50th anniversary of the World Heritage Convention showed the urgency of a paradigm shift in access to cultural heritage conservation. Not even an international instrument has contributed to the recognition of the value of cultural heritage as a resource for sustainable development.

This raises the question of whether the previous approaches have failed and whether other more efficient ways are needed to protect our heritage for and with the coming generation. New guidelines for the conservation of our common heritage, as well as for education and research, and with the handling and dissemination of the resulting data are required. As scientists, it is our task to suggest new ways forward and to bring about a change in thinking that in times of crisis, archaeological research and cultural heritage should be seen as a resource.

New strategies for the reuse of monuments and digital access to cultural heritage assets both for professionals and the general public would combine technological innovations in the field of cultural heritage with concepts such as the circular economy or the EU’s New European Bauhaus.

This year at CHNT we will be looking at how to change the way we perceive and handle upcoming challenges and crises while focusing on archaeology and cultural heritage as a resource. The need for technological foundations, resources and education to allow for a digital interaction with cultural heritage assets, raises questions about the impact on workflows, distribution of knowledge, ethics, the digital divide and authenticity.

The International Conference on Cultural Heritage and New Technologies provides a platform for exchanging views on the Cultural Heritage protection agenda. Discussion among colleagues from a wide range of disciplines is a major focus of the event. During the conference the latest approaches to the research, management and monitoring of world heritage sites, cultural assets and archaeological monuments will be presented. The focus is primarily on interdisciplinary cooperation between experts with a strong interest in the application of new technologies in the field of cultural heritage.
