The theme of this years’ Cultural Heritage and New Technologies conference is Urban Archaeology and Data. The Call for papers, posters and apps is now open (closes 12th June).
ARIADNE is hosting a Session on Preservation and Re-Use of Digital Archaeological Research Data with Open Archival Information Systems and this is followed by a Round Table which will allow for further discussion on this topic.
a) Session: “Preservation and Re-Use of Digital Archaeological Research Data with Open Archival Information Systems”
Chairs: Valentijn GILISSEN, The Netherlands | Reiner GÖLDNER, Germany | Hella HOLLANDER, The Netherlands | Maurice HEINRICH, Germany | Julian RICHARDS, UK | Felix SCHÄFER, Germany
b) Round Table: “Long-term preservation and access: Where is an archive for my data?”
Organizers: Edeltraud ASPÖCK | Guntram GESER, Austria
Note: The round table is connected to the session, providing an opportunity for more discussion. The following questions will be addressed:
- How have repositories for archaeological data been developed, e.g. political, organizational and other drivers (exemplary cases from different European countries)?
- How is archaeological data different to data in the other humanities and hence has ‘special’ requirements?
- What options are there for long-term archiving of archaeological data if there is no appropriate national archive?
The Call for Papers, Posters and Apps is now open (until 12th June) at: http://www.chnt.at/ (See Call menu options for each of these items).
