On April 22nd and 23rd, the 2nd annual Digital Documentation conference will be held at the Old Fruitmarket in the heart of Glasgow's Merchant City. Digital Documentation 2009 will have twelve presenters from around the globe speaking about digital documentation, laser scanning and 2D/3D representation within the heritage and conservation sectors.

The conference aims to bring together leading specialists from the United States, Spain, Germany, Italy, Turkey and the United Kingdom to present current documentation projects and to consider future applications to the benefit of conservationists and the built environment. We are honored to have Gustavo Araoz, the President of the International Council of Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS) as our keynote speaker.

CyArk founder Ben Kacyra was the keynote speaker for the event last year. This year he returns as a speaker alongside a very impressive list of speakers, including many of CyArk's prominent partners.

The event is coordinated by the Digital Design Studio at the Glasgow School of Art and in association with Historic Scotland, Leica Geosystems, Hexagon Metrology, Glasgow City Council and CyArk.
