The CIDOC 2024 conference will be hosted at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam from 11-15 November 2024. Everything is connected. The stories museum collections tell, connect people with ideas and events across the globe. Research and documentation practices are increasingly collaborations between institutions, communities, and other stakeholders. And now more than ever networks of knowledge are built in the digital space too.

Sustainable Connections: Building Knowledge Networks underscores the pivotal role of connectivity and collaboration in advancing museum documentation and knowledge sharing. This conference will explore efforts to facilitate the (re)use of collections information – ranging in scope, content, geography and theme – and embrace the lessons learned from developing social, analogue or digital knowledge networks, in order to inspire, expand and connect this work.


You can contribute to the CIDOC conference with a presentation, lightning talk, poster or video.
