"The Jerusalem Archives Project', funded by the Jerusalem Development Authority and led by Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design Jerusalem, is an extensive project of heritage documentation and digitization which aims to locate, digitize and make accessible official and private collections. The main objective of the project is to provide access to historic collections of Jerusalem planning and architecture for improving sustainable development and conservation practice and for enhancing heritage research and democratization.

The purpose of the conference is to bring together professionals and researchers whose work  focuses on practical and substantive issues of digitizating urban heritage and its interpretations, in Jerusalem and beyond, under three main topics:

1. Cultural heritage in the digital age: the digitization of the Jerusalem archives

2. Digital Heritage and the Preservation Approach 'The Historic Urban Landscape'

3. Democratization / interpretations of Jerusalem’s heritage
