Shaping Access! – More Responsibility for Cultural Heritage 6th International Conference 17. & 18. November 2016 at Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin

The digitization of cultural heritage has made great progress in recent years. However, given the rapid technological development of electronic media, the project orientation of cultural promotion and the volatility of digital communication, questions of sustainability are becoming increasingly important.

The related aspects will be discussed on the 6th international conference on the 17th and 18th of November 2016.
