Cataloguing and Fruition of South Arabian Inscriptions through an Informatic Support

CASIS is part of the Executive Programme of Scientific and Technological Cooperation between Italy and Yemen of the Italian Ministry for Foreign Affairs (MAE) for the years 2006-2009.
 
The project was submitted with the aim of spreading the knowledge and the study of the ancient Yemen civilization and culture through the information technology.
In concrete, the objective is the digital cataloguing of the south Arabian inscriptions preserved in the Yemeni museums, with the aim of publishing them in the web site CSAI.

The exchange of knowledge among the involved institutions, the exploitation of a pre-existing technology and the training of the Yemeni students and researchers have great importance within the project.
