This is a call-for-papers announcement for the 1st International Conference on Transdisciplinary Multispectral Modeling and Cooperation for the Preservation of Cultural Heritage (TMM_CH 2018), which will be held in Athens from October 10th to 13th, 2018, with the active participation of the School of Engineering and the Department of History and Archaeology of the University of Ioannina.
About the conference
Innovative scientific methodologies and challenging projects marking future trends in the protection of cultural heritage, have initiated a universal conversation within a holistic approach, merging capabilities and know-how from the scientific fields of architecture, civil engineering, surveying engineering, materials science and engineering, information technology and archaeology, as well as heritage professionals on restoration and conservation and policy makers in cultural heritage. The combined utilization of digital documentation technologies with innovative analytical and non-destructive techniques, computational and digital techniques and archaeometric methods supports the creation of a transdisciplinary multispectral modelling towards the sustainable preservation of cultural heritage. Innovation is enhancing and revealing a critical dimension of the preservation of cultural heritage along with social participation and communication.
The conference is being held at the Eugenides Foundation Cultural Center, with reference to the “Interactive digital exhibition of advanced technology for the monument and the restoration work of the Holy Aedicule of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem”, that will be held at the Byzantine and Christian Museum of Athens. Scientific walk and talk visits to Acropolis and Ancient Agora (in the footsteps of the Greek Peripatetic Philosophical School) and other major archaeological sites are planned on Saturday, October 13rd, 2018.
The international Conference is organized under the auspices of the Presidency of the Hellenic Republic and the Hellenic Parliament, in cooperation with international organizations and associations (NGS, WMF, ICOMOS, CIPA, OWHC, et al), as well as international and Greek networks and associations in the field of cultural heritage preservation.
The international scientific committee welcomes research contributions for oral and poster presentations in English. The submitted abstracts and papers will be peer reviewed. Accepted papers will be divided into sessions. Plenary lectures will cover major accomplishments, trends and technical challenges. Please check important dates for submission deadlines. Selected papers will be published in a special volume of Internationally Recognized Edition and will be available during the Conference before the end of the year 2018
