Taiwan Gearing Up for 25th CIPA Session

The International Committee for Documentation of Cultural Heritage will host its 25th congress and international symposium in Taipei at the end of August, exposing Taiwan to new cultural preservation ideas and technologies, Taiwan’s Ministry of Culture said.
The committee, functioning under the auspices of the International Council on Monuments and Sites, will be hosting the events for the first time in Taiwan from Aug. 31 to Sept. 4, Focus Taiwan reported.
CIPA was established to improve the methods of 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 World Monuments Fund, and Chen Jun, president of the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing.
The congress and symposium will be held at China University of Technology.
Close to 300 experts from Taiwan and abroad are expected to attend the congress and symposium, which will feature speeches, workshops and a youth camp focused on technologies to preserve cultural heritage.
