Innovative new data collection and digital visualisation techniques can capture and share historic artefacts, places and practices faster, in greater detail and amongst a wider community than ever before.

Yet for many, gaps still exist between these evolving technologies and their application in everyday heritage practice. Following the success of a sister conference in Brisbane, Australia in April 2017, this symposium will focus on the emerging disciplines of digital cultural heritage and the established practice of heritage management, providing a platform for critical debate between those developing and applying innovative digital technology, and those seeking to integrated best practice into the preservation, presentation and sustainable management of cultural heritage.

This symposium is designed to encourage critical debate across a wide range of heritage-related disciplines.

We welcome abstracts from practitioners and academics working in cultural heritage and related fields such as architecture, anthropology, archaeology, geography, media studies, museum studies and tourism.

We particularly encourage papers that explore the challenges of digitising tangible and intangible cultural heritage, those that identify issues with digitisation and digital interaction, and those that address the theoretical challenges posed by digital cultural heritage.
