The meeting focuses on the state of the art technology and the most up to date discoveries to be applied to the preservation of our maritime heritage.
The conference aims to bring together scholars and professionals to discuss a variety of topics related to maritime heritage. In addition to the scientific advances, the meeting will discuss the future of historic harbours, dockyards and other similar maritime structures in today’s world, as well as the function of historic vessels and their heritage value. This leads to problems such as the role of development schemes and relationships between tourism and maritime heritage and the need to protect the latter by suitable legislation and support initiatives.
Another major issue is the role of education in developing the right attitudes towards maritime heritage and the responsibility of the media to portray maritime heritage in a truthful and accurate manner.
Maritime Heritage 2005 will make an important contribution to recent advances in research and up to date studies of buildings, vessels and diverse artefacts related to maritime heritage.
