"The Future of Polar Heritage:  Environmental challenges in the face
    of climate change: detection and response"
Copenhagen, Denmark
25-28 May 2014


The ICOMOS International Polar Heritage Committee is holding its
next meeting and in conjunction with the Polar Archaeology Network
an open conference in Copenhagen, Denmark on May 25-28, 2014.

The IPHC 2014 conference, co-organised with PAN will be held at and
hosted by the National Museum of Denmark in association with the
Greenland National Museum.

The focus of the conference will be to bring together interested
parties to discuss the future of polar heritage. The conference
theme is about addressing environmental challenges in the face of
climate change--how do we detect and respond to those changes.

The conference is open to heritage specialists, scientists,

government, local community and industry. The formal AGM of the IPHC
will be open to IPHC members only.
