The Tenth International Conference on Digital Presentation and Preservation of Cultural and Scientific Heritage—DiPP2020 aims at presenting innovative results, research projects, and applications in the field of digitisation, documentation, archiving, representation, and preservation of global and national tangible and intangible cultural and scientific heritage. The main focus is to provide open access to digitised cultural heritage and to set up sustainable policies for its continuous digital preservation and conservation.
