Industrial Heritage
Santiago, Chile

The Third Latin American Meeting to be held in Santiago, Chile, will
be a continuation of the meetings  organized in Puebla, Mexico and
La Habana, Cuba, and a contribution to the efforts already set into
motion in  these prior gatherings, i.e. a reflection on the value of
the Industrial Heritage that integrates the experience and
development of the European and North American countries to the
discussion. The Santiago meeting will focus on how to take advantage
of the Industrial Heritage for  tourist and didactic purposes.  The
organizers of the meeting would be very pleased to receive
professionals  and students from Latin America, Europe and North
America, and look forward to welcome all of them.

The Meeting aims at facilitating the exchange of experiences among
