Over the years, the CIPA Symposium has been an important international crossroad for a wide community of researchers, professionals, and site managers interested in documenting, understanding, and preserving cultural heritage. CIPA was jointly founded in 1968 by ICOMOS (International Council of Monuments and Sites) and ISPRS (International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing) to facilitate the transfer of technology from the measurement sciences into the heritage documentation and recording disciplines. Since then, the biennial symposia have enabled an ever-growing community to meet, debate, network, and get up-to-date. After the very sad and long period that forced us to stay separated, we will meet again in person during CIPA2023 in Florence, from 25-30 June 2023.

CIPA2023 intends to combine scientific, technological and humanistic skills and promote interactions with the institutions responsible for conservation and restoration, with the aim of defining documentation systems that address the entire life cycle of artefacts, archaeological sites, historic buildings and landscapes, using new digital technologies. There is a need to develop risk reduction and preventive and sustainable conservation models that support cultural participation, accessibility and enhancement of cultural diversity and expression.
