CIDOC 2020 – announcing next year conference Conference, Network

CIDOC 2020 will be held in Geneva from 19 to 25 september.

The conference theme is Digital transformation in cultural heritage institutions.

Transformation from a digital perspective was generally first observed in museum institutions in the context of documentation. Long used to support and facilitate traditional practices, these increasingly effective tools have gradually transformed, sometimes revolutionized, our very concept of documentation, and from there, of collection management, conservation, study and dissemination.  This transformation takes place in a more or less radical way depending on the cultural context, with nuances specific to institutions and current geopolitical environments.  Whether it encounters fierce opposition, or progresses on favourable ground, sometimes leading it to depart from traditional concepts of the missions of museum institutions, no one can escape the digital trend today.  The CIDOC 2020 conference in Geneva aims at taking stock of the current situation in this field in the world of documentation, collection management and other museum activities, as well as outlining projections for a more or less immediate future.


The call for papers will be announced soon and you can follow all the information about the conference at CIDOC 2020 website.
