This international conference will take place in Berlin, 21-22 February 2007. From the website:
Digitisation of cultural assets is an increasingly important topic for all cultural institutions. For this reason, digitisation has been placed on Europe's cultural agenda. Online access to objects from Europe's cultures and language areas facilitates the appreciation of culture, promoting European integration. … This conference in Berlin … examines concerns central to digitisation projects. Placing objects and collections in new digital contexts is creating new forms of scholarly and scientific inquiry. Accessibility and usability emerge as important considerations. This conference will address these and other issues through exploration of innovative online portals and networks. In particular, we will address the need for common standards in collecting and presenting Europe's diverse cultural heritage.
