The ICHIM Program
This year we again examined major trends, novel research frontiers, and possible futures. Best practices, innovative policies, disruptive technologies and radical business plans were promoted and critiqued. And as always, economics, law, and public policy were visited afresh.
The ICHIM Program was selected through peer-review by an International Program Committee.
Who attended ICHIM?
ICHIM is the only conference at which senior policy makers from around the world gather with technology practitioners, researchers, information designers and the staffs of cultural repositories – libraries, archives and museums – to imagine and direct informatics services for culture and heritage knowledge. See the list of institutions represented.
We met in Toronto, recognized by UNESCO as the most multi-cultural city in the world, to think with us about a future in which cultural and heritage understanding is deepened through immediate and constant access to rich cross-cultural interpretation.
The language of ICHIM07 was English. Simultaneous French-language translation was available for all plenaries and one strand of sessions.
Scholarships and VolunteersArchives & Museum Informatics awards scholarships to museum professionals from small institutions and developing countries. Students were invited to volunteer at ICHIM; they attended the conference in exchange for helping out.
