First Announcement of the 2008 CIDOC Annual Conference

Dear all,

In 2008 the CIDOC annual meeting will be held in Athens, Greece from
September 15 to 18 and will be organized by the Hellenic Committee of
ICOM and the Benaki Museum. Please find additional information in French
and English below.

Kind regards,
Christian-Emil Ore

Theme: "The Digital Curation of Cultural Heritage"

Digital curation emerged as an important new concept in the theory and
management of cultural information. It covers all of the actions needed
to maintain digitised and born-digital cultural objects and data, going
beyond digital preservation to encompass their utilisation in the
context of their entire life cycle, from acquisition and appraisal to
exhibition, learning and commercial exploitation. The focus of CIDOC
2008 on the digital curation of cultural heritage will allow curators,
collection managers, documentalists, archivists and museum information
specialists to explore a broad range of theoretical, methodological,
professional practice and technological issuers related to the
appraisal, digitisation, management, representation, access and use of
digital cultural assets, such as those increasingly becoming part of
museum information systems and digital archives. A core emphasis of the
meeting will be to understand and re-contextualise the know-how and
history of established curatorial practice in museums, and memory
institutions, in general, in the new field of digital cultural heritage;
to review and discuss the applicability of standards- and good
practice-related work in the context of managing digital cultural
information; and to identify and explore the issues, methods and
challenges involved with the development of new genres and contexts of
virtual exhibition, e-learning and technology-enhanced services for
scholarship and research.

[For whatever reason, the French version of this announcement came to
me so badly scrambled that I have deleted it. Software rumoured to be
tolerant of languages other than English and Latin is rumoured to be
ready for the New Humanist in the near future. Meanwhile the patience
of rocks is recommended.]
