For the first time in ICOM’s history, you will be able to follow the ICOM General Conference and meet other participants online, from your home… or from anywhere!
The design for the hybrid 2022 ICOM General Conference format includes a digital dimension to the traditional in-person event, ensuring all participants an equal opportunity to attend, in a decisive step towards greater participation and inclusiveness for ICOM conferences.
The new format is also more sustainable, allowing us to significantly reduce the environmental impact of the conference. ICOM trialled this new format in a pre-conference to ICOM Prague 2022, hosting a hybrid International Symposium for the first time in the organisation’s history, with 850 online participants joining 230 onsite participants in Prague from August 25-27.
From 20 to 28 August 2022, the key events of the scientific programme will be accessible online, from keynote speeches to panel discussions, from workshops and round tables to committee meetings. Details of the programme and timetable can be found on the ICOM Prague 2022 website or app.
