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 is exhibited in our parent organizations - ICOMOS - International Council of Monuments and Sites and ISPRS - International Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing. Science and Culture.
We accomplish these two sometimes conflicting goals in a variety of ways, through:
Encouraging and promoting the development of principles and good practices for recording, documentation and information management of cultural heritage;
Leading and participating in international training programs for conservation and informatics professionals, students and site personnel;
Advising government bodies, regional authorities, non-profit groups and institutions on tools, technology and methods for using technology;
Sponsoring an international network of professionals in both the fields of technology and cultural heritage for scientific research but also applied practical experience;
Providing a platform with our bi-annual congress for the exchange of ideas, best practices as well as scientific research papers.
The XXV CIPA Symposium will be held in Taipei (Taiwan) on 2015
