This is a call-for-papers announcement for the 2nd International Conference on Transdisciplinary Multispectral Modeling and Cooperation for the Preservation of Cultural Heritage: Rebranding the World in Crisis through Culture (TMM_CH 2021), which will be held in Athens from December 12th to 15th, 2021, with the active participation of the School of Engineering and other departments 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 competence 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, stakeholders, industry representatives and policy makers. The combined utilization of digital documentation technologies with innovative analytical and non-destructive techniques, numerical, computational and 3D techniques, archaeometric and archaeogene methods, supports the creation of a transdisciplinary multispectral modeling 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 scope of the 2nd TMM_CH Conference is to present the latest developments in research and innovation that identify novel trends to build an interdisciplinary approach to conservation and holistic digital documentation of cultural heritage. The utilization and reuse of monuments, historic cities and sites, forms the framework of a sustainable preservation of cultural heritage, in accordance with the principles of circular economy; in terms of respect and protection of values, materials, structures, architecture and landscape; with an informed society, able to participate effectively in the policies that will design and implement the new strategies required. Sharing knowledge, experiences, and recommendations about sustainable cultural heritage approaches and practices at a moment of great risk and a time of renewed possibilities, will reorientate conversation to explore the current conditions and contours of the World in crisis rebranding itself through Culture, and relaunching development.
The conference will be held at the Eugenides Foundation in a hybrid format, if needed. Scientific walk and talk visits on 12 December 2021 to Acropolis Monuments and Museum [in the footsteps of the Greek Peripatetic Philosophical School] and other visits planned upon demand.
The international Conference is organized in cooperation with international organizations and associations (NGS, WMF, ICOMOS, CIPA, OWHC, SEFI et al), as well as international and Greek networks and associations in the field of cultural heritage preservation.
The International Steering Committee and the International Scientific Committee welcome research contributions for oral and poster presentations. Submitted papers will be peer reviewed. Please check important dates for submission deadlines. Accepted papers will be distributed into sessions. Plenary lectures [after invitation] will cover major accomplishments, innovations and challenges. Accepted papers will be published, as in the case of the 1st TMM_CH Conference, in Springer Computer Science Proceedings, available in 2022 following the Conference, and Scientific Journals in the field of Cultural Heritage Preservation, selectively.
