The association CHNT-ICOMOS Austria was founded in early 2021 to organise the annual Conference on Cultural Heritage and New Technologies. It is a sister association of the Austrian National Committee of the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS). The association has around 20 members who contribute to the continuous development of the conference and participate intensively in the preparations. The president of the association is DI Dr. Urlike Herbig. The treasurer is Mag. Wolfgang Börner, who has been entrusted with the organisation of the CHNT for the last 26 years.
The City of Vienna (Department 7 – Cultural Affairs) is the association’s cooperation partner and is hosting the event in the Vienna City Hall.

What can I do if I am not sure yet whether I can participate online or on site?
There will be an option to buy an online ticket first and upgrade it to an on-site ticket afterwards. We have provided this option for CHNT26 and will have it again for this year’s conference.
What is the Organising Committee doing to create a safe environment for the meeting?
Last year, due to the uncertain situation during the pandemic, we developed a comprehensive Covid-19 safety plan which was coordinated with the Vienna City Town Hall. If the situation is critical again in November 2023, we will implement the concept again and constantly adapt it to the prevailing circumstances.
