The question "Where are you going?", or how these techniques and procedures are developing, is applicable for all areas of life. In the last decade, the Internet and the development of "generation smartphone" has led to significant changes in both in the private sector and the workplace: full-time personal accessibility, the ubiquitous availability of any information and new technologies (from "low-cost to high-tech") provide both benefits and challenges.

Whithin this context the disciplines of "Archaeology / Preservation of monuments" and "Surveying / Geoinformatics" come together from different backgrounds, each of them at first sight very different disciplines and: the one - more traditionally oriented, the other, in the eyes of many, influenced by new technical developments. However, symbioses may arise from this cooperation, as countless successful interdisciplinary collaborations and conferences have shown in the past.

The conference Denkmä is hosted by dif-ferent institutions, namely: (Bochum University of Applied Sciences, University of Applied Sciences Mainz, HafenCity University Hamburg, Working Group Optical 3D Measurement Technology of the German Society for Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and Geoinformation, Regional Association of Westphalia-Lippe, German TICCIH National Committee and German Mining Museum Bochum. It will take place in the period from October 16 to 18, 2013 on the premises of the LWL Industrial Museum Zeche Zollern in the local "magazine". This conference is a platform for both domestic and foreign scientists from different disciplines and of-fers an opportunity for an intensive professional exchange.

are examples of possible contributions. Through lectures of the international working group "Colour and Space in Cultural Heritage" ( the unique aspect of the color information in the findings should also be discussed..

Denkmä 2013 stems from the tradition of two events: Denkmäler 3D 2003 (Ruhrlandmuseum Essen) and Denkmä 2008 (Zeche Zollverein). It serves as a platform for researchers in the technical disciplines to present up-to-date technological developments, while conservators and archaeologists can present current projects

The aim of the symposium is to debate the state of the art of documentation in archaeology and preservation of monuments, introduce new approaches and developments in this interdisciplinary research area, identify solutions for practical use, and to discuss the question of future developments.
