Cultural Heritage Informatics

The ICHIM conference series has ended.

ICHIM explored policy, legal, social, economic, technological, organizational and design concerns of digital culture and heritage, from the perspective of cultural policy makers, institutions and cultural participants. ICHIM07 included peer-reviewed Papers, Project Briefings and Interactions. Significant issues, and leading projects worldwide were demonstrated, discussed and critiqued.

Digital culture is developing rapidly worldwide alongside a movement to capture heritage and make it digitally available. When the International Conference on Hypermedia and Interactivity in Museums (ICHIM) was founded in 1991 it was intended to promote the potential of interactive multimedia in museum programs. It evolved into a broader meeting on all aspects of cultural informatics for cultural policy makers, museum directors, managers, curators, exhibit designers, and educators, as well as for multimedia developers, designers, and publishers, and for those creating public access services to disseminate culture and engage citizens in their heritage.

The last ICHIM was held in 2007.
