****About the CIDOC 2018 Theme**

Heraklion, the modern capital of Crete, situated about 5 km north of 
Knossos, the ancient capital of Minoan Crete, and one of the exceptional 
monuments of the Bronze Age, welcomes you to come and enjoy its rich 
heritage alongside your participation in the 26th annual CIDOC 
Conference of the International Council of Museums in 2018 (CIDOC 2018). 
This year the conference, focuses on the topic of */provenance of 

Generating and tracing the ‘Provenance of Knowledge’ is a core element 
of good practice in documentation and thus, has been chosen as the theme 
of CIDOC 2018.

Provenance of Knowledge refers to the attempt to trace the origins of 
the information and knowledge about an object, an entity or an idea in 
order to reconstruct the whole chain of creation, use, interpretation 
and dissemination of the object and our knowledge about it. The ultimate 
purpose of this reconstruction is to confirm, illustrate, and validate 
the information and knowledge contained in the documentation in order to 
facilitate understanding across times and cultures. In this way, it 
contributes to scholarly citation in information handling while 
connecting all the material evidence kept in museums and other memory 

The possibility to validate and/or disconfirm information and knowledge 
held by memory institutions has been greatly aided by the increasing use 
of digital technologies in documentation. However, this advancement in 
documentation has created new difficulties as the abundance of the 
available information makes it difficult to introduce standards and 
processes to model and maintain the development and validity of 
documented information.

By focusing the issue of provenance of knowledge, the 2018 annual CIDOC 
conference aims to support museums by helping deepen our communal 
knowledge and understanding of documentation as a means of knowledge 
preservation, dissemination and exchange.

We warmly invite you to participate in the conference and to help 
advance this important scientific inquiry with your experience and 
insight. You can enhance the community’s discussions on the 
harmonization of the processes to trace back information by presenting 
on a wide array of potential topics focusing on different potential 
lines of interest:

Theoretical aspects, User experience, Innovative implementations for the 
analysis and documentation of information and knowledge.

The overall aim is to work together to produce new insights into the 
Provenance of Knowledge in the documentation and memory institution 
community considered more broadly. More analytically, the proposed 
conference topics are as follows:

·Object information as historical source

·Object documentation and archival resources

·Field research and object documentation

·Oral tradition and witnessing information in connection with objects

·Documentation and interdisciplinarity

·Object documentation and analytical resources

·Provenance of materials and techniques

·Documentation for target groups (e.g. special needs)

·Methods of knowledge verification and documentation of knowledge revision

·Ethics of provenance of information

·Provenance of knowledge and preservation of referred sources
