New Paths for CHNT – The story of success continues
CHNT started into its 26th season, so the conference may be old but definitely not old-fashioned. What started small in 1996 as a conference on archaeology and computers for German speaking colleagues, grew year by year to be an International Conference on cultural heritage and new technologies with a couple of milestones eg. in 2003 the big congress together with CAA and, not to forget, last year’s virtual conference.
This year, however, marks maybe the biggest change for CHNT: the conference is from now on organized by the newly founded association CHNT – ICOMOS Austria, a branch association of ICOMOS Austria, in cooperation with the Municipal Department for Cultural Affairs.
With a heartfelt thank you to the Museen der Stadt Wien – Urban Archaeology Vienna for making the conference possible the last 25 years, CHNT starts this year a new chapter. For you, most of the things you are used to will stay the same. One of the major changes is that the leadership of the conference has got two new faces besides Wolfgang Börner:
Ulrike Herbig is vice-president of ICOMOS Austria and works as a senior scientist at the Faculty of Architecture and Planning of the Technical University Vienna focused on cultural heritage, diversity and the interrelation between cultural and natural heritage.
Irmengard Mayer is general secretary of ICOMOS Austria and works in the field of building history and building research in projects all over the world with the Technical University Vienna, the Austrian Archaeological Institute and the Deutsches Archäologisches Institut – Rome.
Our scientific and organizing committees will continue their work with only minor changes.
