Digitising Our Heritage For The Future: An Inter-Disciplinary Dialogue

The first International Heritage Symposium and Exhibition (IHSE) 2020 was jointly organized by the Department of Science and Technology (DST), the Karnataka State Council for Science and Technology (KSCST) and the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi. The motivation for this event came from the Indian Digital Heritage (IDH) initiative of DST, the outcomes of which were showcased at the Digital Hampi Workshop and Exhibition in November 2014.

This event brought together for the first time, communities from diverse disciplines such as science, technology, culture and social sciences who are engaged in conservation, preservation and management of World Heritage in the physical and digital space. It allowed for an inter-disciplinary dialogue to take place between scientists, academicians, historians, social-scientists, practitioners, museologists, policy-makers, and industry – all stake-holders in promoting Digital Heritage specifically in the Indian context.
