CIPA 2013 Symposium: Recording, Documentation and Cooperation for Cultural Heritage

CIPA Heritage Documentation is a dynamic international organization that has twin responsibilities: keeping up with technology and ensuring its usefulness for cultural heritage conservation, education and dissemination.  This dual role linking Culture and Science is exhibited in our parent organizations - ICOMOS - International Council of Monuments and Sites and - ISPRS - International Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing.

CIPA accomplish these two sometimes conflicting goals in a variety of ways. CIPA’s bi-annual congress provides a platform for the exchange of ideas, best practices as well as scientific research papers. We wish to celebrate our 45th anniversary in Strasbourg, France at our XXIVth International Symposium. The CIPA symposium 2013 will be a unique opportunity to listen to key figures in cultural heritage documentation and conservation from around the world.

Consider submitting either a scientific paper for peer review or a practical project paper ( extended deadline is April, 15th 2013). Both sets of papers will be published in the proceedings allowing us to accomplish our twin goals of developing and using technology and ensuring that it is applicable for cultural heritage. We invite you to get to know CIPA and attend our symposium.
