Heritage Recording and Information Management in the Digital Age (SMARTdoc–Heritage) | Mario Santana Quintero and Ona Vileikis
The international symposium SMARTdoc-heritage, which was held on November 19–20, 2010 at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia (USA), provided a wide cross-disciplinary platform for educators, professionals, heritage institutions, and managers of heritage places to share, exchange, and explore new approaches, best practices, and research results in the area of digital heritage recording, documentation, and information systems.
This event was organized by the Historic Preservation Department at the School of Design (University of Pennsylvania) with the collaboration of the Raymond Lemaire International Centre for Conservation (RLICC, KU Leuven) and the University College St. Lieven. Supporting institutions included the Kress Foundation, Sardegna fund, UNESCO World Heritage Center, UNESCO Chair for Preventive Maintenance, Monitoring and Conservation (PRECOMOS), ICOMOS Scientific Committee on Heritage Documentation (CIPA), ICCROM and the International Society on Virtual Systems and Multimedia (VSMM).
This symposium, initially planned by Robin Letellier and Frank Matero, was dedicated to Letellier’s unique vision and tireless effort to promote heritage conservation through research, teaching, and public service.
