- The conservation of works of art featuring technological components
- Documentation strategies and structures adapted to these works of art
- A typology and historical listing of the technologies deployed by the artists
- Catalogue structures and methods for works featuring technological components
- Terminological tools and structures for the electronic arts

In addition, a number of educational activities such as case studies, seminars and international summits were undertaken and generated many audiovisual documents, which are also available on the DOCAM Web site.
