AVICOM Annual Conference 2024 “News from the Digital Museum World”

From October 17 to 19, 2024, AVICOM will host its annual conference in a hybrid format, combined with the annual General Assembly, in Turin. This time, the theme is deliberately chosen to be broader to cover diverse focal points that are all directly related:

  1. Sustainability, Climate Change and Climate Protection, Equality and Inclusion: How are these aspects or demands considered in digital museum presentations? Which museums dedicate (digital) exhibitions and activities to the topic of climate change and climate protection?

  2. Innovative Examples / Best Practice Examples of Resource-Conserving Digital Presentations and Exhibition Installations

  3. Artificial Intelligence: How can museums use it, and what ethical and legal aspects need to be considered?

  4. Digitally Created or Digitized Artworks: What legal aspects need to be considered?

  5. Virtual Museums and Exhibitions: Definition, Requirements, Advantages and Disadvantages, Legal Aspects…

  6. Digital Educational Formats: Examples of Cooperation between University and Museum

You are all – students, young professionals, and experienced colleagues from the museum and media world – cordially invited to participate with a presentation, either on-site or online.
