Looking ahead to the New Year!
The ICOMOS International Scientific Committee for Archaeological Heritage Management (ICAHM) is happy to announce the 2017 ICAHM conference, which will be held at Tanzania, Dar es Salaam, 2 through 5 October 2017. Please find attached the Save the Date flier.
The theme for the 2017 Conference is: Sub-Sahara Africa and International Trade Routes. In 2011 ICAHM began an Africa Initiative “The Potential Role of the World Heritage Convention, ICOMOS, and ICAHM in African Archaeological Site Preservation and Economic Development” geared towards identifying sites with potentials to be included in the World Heritage List thus increasing the number of World Heritage Sites in Africa to balance it with other sites in the world. Therefore, we are now happy to announce that the next ICAHM meeting will take us for the first time to the African continent, to the commercial capital of Tanzania on the shores of Indian Ocean in Dar es Salaam.
The emphasis of this meeting will be on: trade routes to and from sub-Saharan Africa to the rest of the world, the Africa Initiative, and conservation and sustainable use of paleoanthropological sites. Furthermore, we intent to organize sessions on: Inclusive Social Development, World Heritage Sites as Sources for Sustainable Development, Tourism management and Digital Technologies.
We will soon issue a Call for Papers and open registration for this conference on ICAHM’s website: http://www.icomos.org/icahm/index.html.Meanwhile, save the date for this exciting event!
We hope to welcome you in Dar es Salaam next year!
