This document is the formal definition of the CIDOC Conceptual Reference Model (“CIDOC CRM”), an event-centric model which facilitates the integration, mediation and interchange of heterogeneous cultural-historical information by providing a semantic representation appropriate to the accurate representation of the interconnection of facts related to past human activities of all kinds, to their material and intellectual context and to cultural heritage objects through time and space. The CRM is the culmination of more than two decades of standards development work by the International Committee for Documentation (CIDOC) of the International Council of Museums (ICOM). The present document belongs to the series of evolving versions of the formal definition of the CRM, which serve the ISO working group as community draft for the standard.
