August 2023 News News
Dear CIMCIM community,
We hope that you are all well, and after the break it is time to resume the CIMCIM News!
First of all, the CIMCIM Annual Meeting 2023 (The Netherlands) – Prospects and challenges of museum accessibility, diversity and equity on 30 August – 1 September 2023 is approaching and will see an exciting programme. Due to a high demand for participation, the conference has reached the maximum capacity for in-person attendance which is limited to 80 participants. The paper sessions from the main conference hall will be live streamed and accessible online for free. The programme and the link will be sent out on the CIMCIM-L soon. We hope that many of you can attend and much look forward to the CIMCIM Annual Meeting 2023.
