Planning Progresses for the 2012 US/ICOMOS International Symposium

May 31 – June 2, 2012
San Antonio, Texas
The 15th US/ICOMOS International Symposium is being designed to help celebrate the 40th anniversary of the World Heritage Convention. While the formal theme and content are still being finalized, the San Antonio Missions, recently included on the revised US Tentative List for nomination to the World Heritage List, will be highlighted during the symposium.
The annual US/ICOMOS International Symposium is one of the primary ways US/ICOMOS brings international attention to issues of cultural heritage preservation. Past symposia have been held in Washington, DC, New Orleans, San Francisco, Newport, RI, Santa Fe, NM, and Philadelphia, and Charleston, SC. The first US/ICOMOS Symposium was held in San Antonio in 1996, so we are looking forward to our return more than 15 years later.
