  [ Enter the Past ] Vienna, City Hall - Austria, 8-12 April 2003

Our cultural heritage is intersected by many interests, including those of the arts, sciences, resource planning and development and monument preservation, and is exposed not only to the danger and even destruction of the building industry and tourism, but also of its own aging process. Since the intensity of these risks is continually increasing due to many different factors, preservation and research are especially urgent.
New technologies, especially the use of computers, are proving a useful and modern tool in helping to preserve and research our valuable culture heritage.
Therefore, [ Enter the Past ]will make it possible for representatives from all of these fields to come together in Vienna to present and discuss new ideas as well as to search for new possibilities for research and cooperation.
