The 26th biennial CIPA symposium will be held at Carleton University, Ottawa from August 28 to September 1, 2017.
CIPA was founded in 1968 jointly with ISPRS (International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing) to facilitate the transfer of technology from the measurement sciences into the heritage documentation and recording disciplines.
The August 27th will have a preconference workshops and tutorials put on by Carleton University.
The days will be made up of keynotes and sessions, interspersed with time on the exhibition floor. There will also be several optional tours offsite.
CIPA 2017 will bring together more than 300 international delegates to discuss current developments in heritage documentation.
The Ottawa conference will mark the first time that the CIPA symposium has been held in North America and only the fourth time in 50 years that it has been held outside of Europe.
The theme of the 2017 symposium is “Digital Workflows for Heritage Conservation”.
CIPA 2017 will offer a unique opportunity for educators, professionals, heritage institutions and property managers to share, exchange and explore new approaches, best practices and research results.
