Gdansk University of Technology will celebrate two jubilees in academic year 2004/2005. The first involves the founding of the first institution of higher education in Gdansk "Koenigliche Technische Hochschule zu Danzig" in 1904, and the second its transformation into the Polish state university "Politechnika Gdanska" in 1945.
To celebrate this long and distinguished history, the Gdansk University of Technology Alumni Association is organizing the International Conference "Heritage of Technology - Gdansk Outlook 4" (HOT-GO4)on May 4-7, 2005. The following problems are proposed for discussion in eight sections:
Identity and historical memory of the industrial society - the tangible and intangible heritage of technology.
Embodiment of "ingenium" - approach to heuristics by the investigation of the phenomena of technical creativity.
Storytelling on industrial, technical and engineering heritage - reports and case studies on conservation - restoration.
Heritage of names - biographical notes about inventors of old testing instruments or methods being still in use and named after them.
History of engineering for engineers - case studies on the recent teaching experience.
Toward e-society - ICT for promotion of cultural heritage and conservation - restoration of its resources.
Technological themes in fine arts, music and poetry.
History of engineering sciences and education in Gdansk.
