33rd IPC Conference Registration Opens

Sunday, 28 April 2024


33rd IPC Conference, hosted by the 

Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL)

in Lausanne, Switzerland

October 02–06, 2024

The International Panorama Council invites you to join its 33rd International Panorama Council Conference at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) in Lausanne, Switzerland, October 02–04, 2024, with an optional post-conference excursion on October 05–06, 2024.

Panoramas as Memory of the World focuses on the memorial aspect of the panorama's media form. Panoramas, in their various forms, seek to create an immersive experience by transporting visitors into another space. They commemorate events or celebrate memorable landscapes. Through their installations in staged ecosystems and their tailored mechanisms of illusion, they also create memories. The pioneering role of panoramas as the first immersive media can be assessed in the light of technological developments, from mechanical analog back then to computer-assisted digital today.

This conference will present a diverse range of session topics centered around panoramic media including socio-cultural and political roles of panoramic memories; the mechanics of illusion: from analog to digital; digitization and conservation; Memory of the World (Unesco program) and panoramas.

An optional two day post-conference tour begins on Saturday, October 05 and concludes Sunday, October 06.
