Non commercial partnership "Automation directions in museums and information technologies" ADIT

About us


Non-profit partnership "Automation directions in museums and information technologies" is an association of professionals in the field of digital technologies in culture. Established in 1996, ADIT has over 100 individual and corporate members. ADIT is a platform for mutually beneficial cooperation and exchange of best practices. This is a community of professionals capable of designing information systems, producing multimedia products, creating websites and mobile applications, maintaining electronic archives and much more. The main event of ADIT is the annual conference, which every time take place in different regions, from Vladivostok (2021) to Kaliningrad (2022) and from Minsk (2011) to Solovki (2006) and Khanty-Mansiisk (2013). The 2023 Conference took place in Murmansk, 2024 in Omsk and for 2025 we are planning to be in Krasnoyarsk.


In addition to the Annual conference, ADIT offers various forms of educational activities in digital transformation of cultural institutions. In 2020, amid a pandemic, we organized series of 11 webinars dedicated to the adaptation of museums and their staff to work in new conditions.

Our traditional conference has also been moved to an online format and named ADIT HOME 2020.

In the 2020 ADIT design workshops, the Moodle distance learning platform, specially deployed on our website Moodle distance learning platform , was used. Employees of more than 40 museums from 26 regions of Russia took part in our December workshops.

Recordings of webinars and conference sessions can be viewed on our Youtube channel.
