New! During the conference, a small trade exhibition will take place at the main venue (National Museum). The exhibition provides an opportunity to explore commercial collection management systems and to meet representatives of their providers.
We will be updating this page regularly as the arrangement goes on and the different parts of program get confirmed. During the conference the last updates will be also posted on twitter, facebook and to the information screens on the conference venues. You can also make inquiries from the information desk at the National Museum. The registration and information desk is located in the ground floor of the National Museum of Finland, in the vicinity of the main Auditorium. The registration opens on Sunday (10.6.) and will be open every day during the conference.
CIDOC has a number of Working Groups, each of which is devoted to a specific topic. Generally, the annual CIDOC conference is the time for the Working Groups to come together, have discussions about their topics and relate to the other groups. The Working Groups are open to all CIDOC members, and we encourage your participation. The Working Groups will also hold workshops and tutorials during the first day of the conference.
CIDOC Helsinki wants to emphasize the importance of working groups and getting things done together. The conference is not only about listening; we want existing and new members to get involved! In working groups you will have a chance to meet like-minded colleagues, discuss, learn, argue and become part of the CIDOC family. Make sure you do not miss the thing which makes people travel to conferences year after year: inspiring meetings with fantastic people!
