    The X Nordic Meeting on Stratigraphy and the XI Nordic Conference on the Application of Scientific Methods in Archaeology, SMIA XI, will be jointly arranged October 20th–23rd 2015 at University of Helsinki, Finland.

    The First Nordic Meeting on Stratigraphy (Stratigrafimöte) was held in Stockholm in 1996. Since then Nordic archaeologists have gathered together nine times to discuss stratigraphy, which forms the basis for all contextual methods in archaeology. Today, stratigraphy is one of the most important methods both in field archaeology and in interpreting the archaeological record. The aim of the meetings is to develop both the theoretical background and the practical applications of stratigraphy.

    Part of the 9th International Conference on Metadata and Semantic Research (MTSR 2015), 9 -11 September 2015, Manchester, UK

    Cultural Heritage collections are essential knowledge infrastructures that provide a solid representation of the historical background of human communities. These knowledge infrastructures are constructed from and integrate cultural information derived from diverse memory institutions, mainly museums, archives and libraries. Each individual community has spent a lot of effort in order to develop, support and promote its own metadata as tools for the description and dissemination of cultural information, mainly related to its particular resources and use.

    VAST-LAB logo

    VAST-LAB are organising a workshop which will run within the framework of the TPDL2015 Conference in Poznań, Poland on 17 September, 2015

    The goal of the workshop is to present, discuss and take stock of the developments of the CIDOC CRM in a number of domains. The importance of CRM in heritage-related digital libraries and dataset infrastructures is confirmed by the increasing number of cultural heritage institutions and research projects adopting CRM and its extensions to foster datasets interoperability. Recently various extensions have been presented, for example to incorporate geographical concepts, digital provenance, scientific applications, archaeology, built structures and scientific reasoning. On the other hand, CRM has proved to be pivotal to natural language processing of heritage datasets, gazetteers and thesauri, linked open data and other methods for the use and re-use of dataset collections for digital humanities, history and archaeology.

The survey is distributed among thousands of institutions across Europe.

  • 3D Web Technology is a mature resource

    17 Mar 15The last two years have seen a radical change in how 3D technologies are managed by browser. The emergence and consolidation of a standard, the JavaScript API WebGL, makes it possible to develop applications able to direct rendering interactive 3D computer graphics within any web browser.

    The practical side of this change is that there is no more need of any kind of plugin or other software to be installed to enjoy 3D content on a browser. This is an important advantage for all those application domains populated by ordinary users (not ICT geeks).
