Abstract (in English)

In Quebec City, Canada, in October 2008, during the 16th General Assembly of ICOMOS, a group of 14, representing half of the 28 International Scientific Committees (ISCs) as well as two National Committee (NC) presidents, met to debate and propose the 2009 and 2010 Advisory Committee meetings’ scientific symposia. Building on the symposium held in Pretoria, South Africa in 2007 on Global Climate Change (GCC) and its effects on cultural heritage, the themes of Technological Change (TC) for 2009 and Social Change (SoCh) for 2010 further explore change elements. A brief for the former was circulated in April 2009. Technological Change was also selected to coincide with ICOMOS’s choice of “Heritage and Science” as the theme for the 2009 International Day for Monuments and Sites, as well as UNESCO’s adoption of 2009 as the International Year of Astronomy. Fourteen papers were submitted and published on the web . Some of the papers also related TC to GCC. The seven papers presented were grouped around documentation, intangible aspects, energy technology, and historic technology. These were followed by breakout sessions of five separate groups, which debated how TC assists or hinders the area of interest of each ISC. 21 of the 28 ISCs were represented along with many National Committee presidents
