Toronto, Ontario, Canada


Project reports from major government-funded Cultural Heritage Informatics projects, on-going world-wide or completed in the past two years were presented.

ICHIM07 featured Briefings by Heritage Professionals throughout the meeting. These informal sessions were a chance to explore the aims and achievements of important international projects close-up and talk one-on-one with colleagues about their research and the decisions that went into it.

Who Conducted Briefings?

The Briefing opportunity was limited to professionals from non-profit, governmental, cultural, scientific or educational institutions who are undertaking major projects or have received major grants for projects involving cultural and heritage informatics applications. Projects have been conducted in part between 2005 and 2007, or were funded to begin in the near future.
