25th CIPA Symposium on Heritage Documentation


For many years, CIPA has been making great efforts integrating technology with cultural heritage conservation. The education and dissemination of acquired knowledge is also its major concern. CIPA holds an international symposium every two years presenting the latest scientific research and providing a forum for specialists in conservation and technology to communicate and exchange their ideas.


After examining the properties inscribed on the World Heritage list and those on the tentative list in the past, a problem with imbalanced representation of the territories and themes is identified. Thus, The World Heritage List: Filling the Gaps - an Action Plan for the Future was published in 2004. It particularly addresses the importance of diversity that mankind as a whole needs, and how this diversity can bear witness to the Cultural Heritage that exists in the course of human history. It is also hoped that the imbalanced representation on the World Heritage List can be resolved. In the era of globalization, the development of digitization instruments and methods should closely correspond with the evolution of the concept in cultural heritage conservation and the application of technology. Yet with the restriction of the territorial extension, cultural differences and instrumental limitation, there have been gaps between the application of digitization instruments and conservation concepts. In view of this, a platform set up for continuous, communication and integration is eminently required.


For all the reasons mentioned above, the theme for 2015 CIPA Symposium titled Filling the Gaps—Towards a Globalization Era, while taking into consideration the trend of globalization, emphasizes how CIPA can exercise its influence on the combination of digitization technology and conservation concepts by way of understanding different historical backgrounds, their related cultures, heritage types and conservation principles. It is our hope that the purpose of cultural heritage conservation can be further strengthened by sharing research findings in fields such as knowledge and conceptual structure, operations, integration, future directions, and so forth. The 2015 CIPA Biannual International Symposium is the second one held in Asia. It is profoundly significant to have the opportunity to hold such an event in Taiwan, the Heart of Asia, where multi-cultural exchanges will take place and a wide range of technologies will be presented in the globalization era. We cordially invite all of you here, specialists and researchers in heritage conservation, to participate in this symposium and to exuberantly share the research findings in the field of your interest.
