CIPA is happy to announce its 5th Heritage Documentation Summer School on “Cultural Heritage 3D Surveying and Modelling” which will take place from 15-21 July 2018 in Zadar, Croatia. As with the past four editions, this summer school will consist of theoretical lectures (on photogrammetry/computer vision, laser scanning, photography and total station survey) and practical work, in the field and in the lab.
we would be highly appreciated if you could spend 15-20 minutes of your valuable time and respond to a survey to identify stakeholders and demands in the field of digital cultural heritage.
The survey is conducted under auspices of major institutions as Europeana Foundation, ICCROM, NEMO, CIPA and INTERPOL by the Virtual Multimodal Museum (ViMM) Coordination and Support Action (CSA), funded under the EU Horizon 2020 programme (CULT-COOP-8-2016). ViMM brings together leading European and international public and private sector organisations working on Virtual Museums and the wide sector of Digital Cultural Heritage to support access to high quality information and documentation to support policy development and decision making through the use of technical advances.
Thank you very much in advance!

In October 2016, CIPA organised a design competition to come up with a new, more up-to-date logo for our organisation. Despite the wide variety of designs send in by the many participants, no logo fully met all the expectations of the CIPA Executive Board. However, CIPA felt that three entries stood out and therefore rewarded their creators with a free registration for the CIPA 2017 Symposium (see this news item).
The CIPA-HD Executive Committee wishes to promote and sustain young researchers by offering a privileged place to show their research efforts and results.
If you are younger than 35 at 15th January 2018, and author of a Master or PhD thesis, concerning (totally or partially) the theme of cultural heritage documentation approved in the period 1st October 2016 – 31st October 2017, you can participate in this celebration and win an award. You can send us a summary paper of 8 pages in English including an abstract, methodology, main theme and results. The paper should follow the ISPRS format. The full version of your thesis is also required.

The CIPA logo competition, which was approved by the CIPA Executive Board during the last meeting in Prague on July 2016, was formally launched on October 2016. Three months later, the CIPA Executive Board is pleased to announce that 21 candidates have participated to this competition and that 31 proposals have been put to the discretion of the evaluation committee.
Since no logo fully met all the expectations, the CIPA Executive Board decided to select the 3 best logos and asked a professional graphic designer to come forward with a new proposal based on these results. Even if the new CIPA logo is not created yet, the Executive Board still wants to reward the following 3 winners with a free registration for the next CIPA 2017 Symposium (Ottawa, Canada, Aug 28 to Sept 1, 2017):
Tudor Driscu (Belgium)
Elise Lachat (France)
Emmanuel Moisan (France)
