Ingenium – Canada’s Museums of Science and Innovation is pleased to welcome colleagues to Ottawa, Canada’s capital city, for the 46th CIMUSET Annual Conference.

CIMUSET, the International Committee for Museums and Collections of Science and Technology, is an International Council of Museums (ICOM) committee composed of museum professionals from the fields of science and technology.

The conference will be held in joint with the International Association of Transport and Communications Museums (IATM), an international forum for museum professionals working in transport and communications museums.

The conference will take place October 15 to October 18 at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum and the Canada Science and Technology Museum, with inspirational visits to the Canada Agricultural and Food Museum, top destinations around Ottawa, and nearby Montreal.


Dear colleagues, friends and CIMUSET members,

I have the great pleasure to welcome you to the 46th CIMUSET annual conference in Ottawa. We are very happy to have this year a joint conference with IATM and Ingenium – Canada’s Museums of Science and Innovation.

Since its creation in 1972, ICOM-CIMUSET continues to carry out a programme of activities related to the preservation of the cultural heritage within science and technology and dissemination of knowledge within this field. Our important purpose is to provide a forum for communication, co-operation and information exchange between museums, professional workers and others concerned with preservation of the cultural heritage within science and technology and dissemination of knowledge of the technical and scientific heritage.

We also support the aims and objectives of the International Council of Museums (ICOM).

This conference is based around a topical theme which concerns, not only scientific and technical museums, but all museum’s community in the world.

Museums in a Digital World” is a highly topical issue which will, no doubt, stimulate a particular interest among all participants.

This conference will be an opportunity to our colleagues to discuss and exchange their ideas and their experiences and reflections. This meeting will be also a real forum dedicated to the study of the different aspects of technical and scientific heritage and an important opportunity for our colleague to promote their museums and science centres.

I hope that 2018 CIMUSET conference will be an intense moment of sharing and exchanges and an opportunity to discover the richness and diversity of the Canadian cultural heritage.

Yours sincerely,

Ech cherki DAHMALI

CIMUSET Chairperson
