CHSOS is an eCult ambassador and contributed to the eCult Vademecum “A guide to Museums to Develop a Technology Strategy“.
CHSOS is invited speaker at “Christian Epigraphy in Syracuse” workshop, May 15th 2015.
Since 2013 CHSOS has pursued diagnostics and documentation in Syracuse catacombs thanks to a research collaboration with Pontificia Commissione di Archeologia Sacra. Mural paintings and graffiti have been examined with innovative analytical and imaging technologies. CHSOS will present these studies.
