The CIPA HD Symposium in Florence awarded outstanding contributions to authors of top papers, showcasing innovation and advancement in heritage documentation, furthering our understanding and preservation of cultural heritage for future generations.
The CIPA HD symposium held in Florence last June featured an engaging video contest centered around the theme, “How can we shape the future with humanities and digital technologies for Cultural Heritage?” This thought-provoking contest attracted a total of 10 participants who presented their creative interpretations and ideas through captivating videos.
The 5th International Symposium on Cultural Heritage Conservation and Digitization (CHCD 2018) is launching the 2nd Digital Heritage Best Practice Competition to promote the relationship between digital heritage and the advancement of cultural heritage business and technology with regard to product innovation, production, and application.
The CIPA-HD Executive Committee wishes to promote and sustain young researchers by offering a privileged place to show their research efforts and results.

The CIPA logo competition, which was approved by the CIPA Executive Board during the last meeting in Prague on July 2016, was formally launched on October 2016. Three months later, the CIPA Executive Board is pleased to announce that 21 candidates have participated to this competition and that 31 proposals have been put to the discretion of the evaluation committee.
Since no logo fully met all the expectations, the CIPA Executive Board decided to select the 3 best logos and asked a professional graphic designer to come forward with a new proposal based on these results.
