I participated in the kick-off workshop of the Centre for Digital Heritage (CDH) in York last week together with Daniel from ARKDIS and colleagues from York, Århus and Leiden.
Archaeological Information in the Digital Society (ARKDIS) research project presents a guest lecture by Professor Dr.
ARKDIS project was a co-organiser of this year's Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology Sweden (CAA-SE) conference in Lund in December 2-4, 2013. We were altogether over 60 participants and had an interesting programme for three days.
The 18th incarnation of the Conference on Cultural heritage and new technology (CHNT18), earlier in its prehistory known as workshop Archäologie und Computer had several tracks, but somehow it seemed that the two main themes that have been prevailing for the last 15 or so years are still going strong: 3D and data management.
I have to admit that I participated only the second time (the first time was the first ever conference in Charlotte, NC in 2004) in the International Conference on Knowledge Management (ICKM) 2013 held this year together with ASIS&T 2013 Annual Meeting in Montreal. In spite of this I have followed rather closely the conference and its programme, and also worked at the programme committees of several past conferences.
I had an opportunity to participate in a workshop organised by the Europeana Cloud project on how Europeana could better support social science research. The workshop was attended besides myself and people from the project by a group of (mainly) Scandinavian social science researchers.
"CAA Sverige är en officiell del av internationella CAA (Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology) och den andra nationella konferensen kommer att äga rum i Lund. Vi vill härmed bjuda in alla intresserade av användningen av digitala redskap inom arkeologi till en givande konferens.
Årets konferens arrangeras i samarbete med ArkDIS-projektet samt HumLab vid Lunds universitet och stöds med medel från Crafoordska stiftelsen.
Archaeological Information in the Digital Society (ARKDIS) Research Project organises an open lecture by Dr. Nicolo Dell'Unto (Lund University) and Dr. Daniel Löwenborg (Uppsala University) titled Examples of archaeological 3D projects in Uppåkra, Catalhöyuk and Gamla Uppsala on Friday 27 September, 2013 at 13.15-14.00 Room 2/K1024, English Park Campus, Uppsala University.
