CIDOC - Geneva 2020

Digital Transformation in Cultural Heritage Institutions

The CIDOC Conference 2020 in Geneva will address an important societal theme that cannot be ignored nowadays: digital transformation in cultural heritage institutions. The use of digital technology, though marginal at first, has gradually reshaped documentation practices and transformed almost all aspects of museum work, sometimes even pushing institutions to deviate from traditional conceptions of what their roles should be.

The conference, organized by the Museum of Art and History of the City of Geneva, will take place from December 5 to 11, 2020 in Geneva.

Welcome to Geneva

The world’s smallest capital as its inhabitants like to describe her, Geneva is home to a very large number of international organizations, including the European headquarters of the United Nations, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN). For decades, the most important international conferences have been hosted here. The city also prides itself with quality of its University and its research centers and the richness of its cultural offer.

Located in the heart of Western Europe, at the gateway to the Alps, Geneva allows you to discover in a few days a heritage-filled region. Access to the city is facilitated by the presence of an international airport – the most important hub after Gatwick of the low cost company EasyJet – and by a wide rail network.

See you in Geneva in 2020
