The most important triennial gathering of ICOMOS will take place from 27 November to 2 December 2011 for the first time in Paris at UNESCO Headquarters.

The General Assembly is accompanied by a Scientific Symposium on the theme "Heritage: Driver of Development". Both events are open to ICOMOS members and non-members alike.

Visit the special website www.icomos-paris2011.com to consult the full programme, register on-line and obtain information on negotiated hotel rates and the 9 post-tours to World Heritage cities in France on offer.

We advise you to book accommodation early to benefit of the widest choice and best rates.

The General Assembly is the occasion where ICOMOS debates its strategy and programme for the coming three years, adopts important resolutions, elects its next board, appoints its Honorary Members and awards the Gazzola Prize - the organization's highest distinction.

The programme include a special evening event for young professionals and universities, a forum where the ICOMOS International Scientific Committees will present their activities to participants and an event to allow participants to exchange with colleagues from their region.

Evening receptions are planned among other at the Cité de l'architecture and His Highness the Aga Khan makes us the honour of welcoming the ICOMOS membership at the Domaine de Chantilly, owned by the Institut de France, for a private visit.
