The China Post - - LOCAL -

The In­ter­na­tional Com­mit­tee for Doc­u­men­ta­tion of Cul­tural Her­itage (CIPA) will host its 25th Congress and in­ter­na­tional sym­po­sium in Taipei at the end of the month, ex­pos­ing Tai­wan to new cul­tural preser­va­tion ideas and tech­nolo­gies, the Min­istry of Cul­ture said Mon­day.

The com­mit­tee, one of the in­ter­na­tional com­mit­tees un­der the In­ter­na­tional Coun­cil on Mon­u­ments and Sites (ICO­MOS), will host its congress and sym­po­sium in Tai­wan for the first time from Aug. 31 to Sept. 4, ac­cord­ing to the min­istry.

CIPA was es­tab­lished to im­prove the meth­ods for sur­vey­ing cul­tural mon­u­ments and sites, so as to bet­ter pre­serve and re­store them.

Among the speak­ers will be Gus­tavo Araoz, pres­i­dent of ICO­MOS, Bon­nie Burn­ham, pres­i­dent and CEO of the World Mon­u­ments Fund, and Chen Jun, pres­i­dent of the In­ter­na­tional So­ci­ety for Pho­togram­me­try and Re­mote Sens­ing.

It is hoped that the events will in­tro­duce new preser­va­tion tech­nolo­gies and re­sources to Tai­wan and ex­pand Tai­wan’s par­tic­i­pa­tion in in­ter­na­tional cul­tural her­itage projects, ac­cord­ing to the Min­istry of Cul­ture.

The congress and sym­po­sium will take place at China Univer­sity of Tech­nol­ogy.
