MIMOA newsletter #9

MIMOA at MACE Conference

MACE is organising an international conference on Online Repositories in Architecture. It will be held in Venice on 12-13 September 2008, during the period of La Biennale di Architettura 2008. MIMOA is invited to join the debates. If you happen to visit the Biennale, you can visit the conference.
MACE (Metadata for Architectural Contents in Europe), is a European project co-funded by the European Commission, that is interlinking architectural repositories in order to create innovative e-learning tools that can help expert users and laypeople to find, tag, acquire, use, and discuss contents from many architectural databases that previously had limited accessibility.
For anyone interested in visiting the presentations, you can find more information here.
