    International Conference on Digital Encounters with Cultural Heritage

    Technische Universität Dresden, SLUB

    NEW  you can find the report of the conference here.

    Conference on Digital Encounters with Cultural Heritage is an international event for the professionals of multiple disciplines and scholars working in the Digital Cultural Heritage domain. The aim of the conference is to bring together experts, stakeholders and researchers from the cultural domain and, addressing the current challenges, start a dialogue that will lay the foundation for the creation of a multidisciplinary community of practice..

    Urban history, drawing on architectural heritage and cultural history, is one of the key areas in digital humanities. Regarding to that research interest, digital libraries play an important role, especially for visual media like photographs, paintings, or drawings, but also for physical and virtual models. Due to the wide field of possible research, different approaches, methods and technologies have emerged – and are still emerging.

    The purpose of the workshop is to concentrate on the area of tension between the fields of culture, technologies and education. We aim to discuss crucial challenges for further research and encourage debate. We would like to invite contributions on theoretical and methodological issues, application scenarios and projects, as well as novel approaches and tools. This includes the following five areas:

    • Research on architectural and urban cultural heritage
    • Technical access
    • Systematization
    • Education in urban history
    • Organizational perspectives
