Yet for many, gaps still exist between these evolving technologies and their application in everyday heritage practice. Following the success of a sister conference in Brisbane, Australia in April 2017, this symposium will focus on the emerging disciplines of digital cultural heritage and the established practice of heritage management. It will provide a platform for critical debate between those developing and applying innovative digital technology, and those seeking to integrate best practice into the preservation, presentation and sustainable management of cultural heritage.
This symposium is designed to encourage critical debate across a wide range of heritage-related disciplines.

Mr Tim Williams, FSA (University College London)
Mr Williams’ background is in urban archaeology, especially Roman, Islamic & Central Asian; approaches to complex stratigraphy; and archaeological site management. He worked for the Department of Urban Archaeology (Museum of London), between 1981-1991, and then was Head of Archaeology Commissions at English Heritage, before joining UCL in 2002, and has undertaken long running projects in Beirut, Lebanon & Merv, Turkmenistan.
His current research focuses on the development of urbanism along the Silk Roads. He is an ICOMOS expert member on advisory missions and panels, and undertook the ICOMOS thematic study of the Silk Roads, which moved away from the emphasis on east-west interaction by exploring the complexity and dynamics of cultural exchange. It provided the basis for the UNESCO World Heritage nomination strategy for the Silk Roads.
He is now working on the South Asian Silk Roads project, and assisting the Kingdom of Bhutan to develop its national heritage inventory using the Getty Conservation Institute’s open source system ARCHES.
