The symposium is a Cooperation:
    * ICOMOS (International Council on Monuments and Sites)
    * Behörde für Kultur, Sport und Medien (Office for cultural affairs)
    * Hamburg University
    * Institute for History of Science and Technology
    * Denkmalschutzamt (monument protection office)

The following topics are discussed:
* History of the observatories around 1900
* Architecture (monument protection?)
* Instruments and their makers
* Important astronomers or instrument makers
* Importance in the scientific community in respect to astronomical
  research (transfer from classical astronomy to modern astrophysics)
* Importance of the observatory in respect to history of science and
  technology  (importance for navigation, time keeping, surveying, ...)
* Handling of the heritage - monument protection
  (condition of the buildings and instruments, restoration,
  future plans)
* Handling of other kind of heritage

The Hamburg Observatory was built at its present location in 
Hamburg-Bergedorf between 1906 and 1912. The buildings mirror the 
architecture of that time, and the instruments form an important 
historical record of astronomical research. The whole ensemble was put 
under monument protection in 1996 due to its significance in cultural 
history. In 2008 is was put in the national list of monumetns.
