Within the framework of its scientific research based on a thematic approach, the centre’s first international conference was held between 23-24 September 2019. The name of the conference was ‘New Approaches in Recording and Preserving the Cultural Heritage in a Divided Cyprus: Problems and Opportunities’ and its organisers were Dr. Hazar Kaba, Prof. Dr. Marko Kiessel and Prof Dr. Latife Summerer. Many scholars from Greece, Turkey, Germany, Sweden, Italy, the UK, New Zealand and both sides of Cyprus gathered for the event. Productive presentations on the cultural heritage of the island were given in ARUCAD’s Workshops building. The conference organisers plan to publish the presented articles as a compiled book.
