    The objective of the conference is to review the results of the application

    This year's conference theme will be multifaceted, highlighting the most
    pressing aspects of virtual heritage informatics.

    Throughout CIDOC'2003 there are many different opportunities to share
    experiences, meet your colleagues and learn from your peers. Social events
    and cultural program will provide you a chance to meet with other delegates
    in an informal environment in the Hermitage Museum, the Russian Museum, and
    brilliant suburb museums of the North Capital of Russia.

    The conference will coincide with the year of celebrating the tercentenary of
    Saint-Petersburg. We assume, that the conference will be the leader both by
