The programme of oral sessions and posters is available at


CHRESP demonstration area: A demonstration area will be organised in
the conference venue, to present technologies, tools, devices and
prototypes, developed under the framework of EC and National funded
research projects. This exhibition will promote further exploitation
of all of these products and prototypes, by showing their
applicability to potential end users, conservators, curators, owners
and managers of cultural heritage assets. Besides, it will be an
opportunity for decision- makers and relevant authorities, as well
as the scientific community to learn about the potentially
marketable products developed under recent research projects.

In this context, most representative market oriented EC and National
funded research projects will be presented, covering movable and
immovable heritage prototypes and products, ICT tools, sensors and
decision support based platforms. More than 30 stands will be
distributed at the exhibition area.

CHRESP workshops: The organisers are delighted to announce six
CHRESP and one COST workshop (13-14 November 2008), many of which
will offer hands-on experience. Practitioners, decision makers,
