Call for papers: Archaeology and Architecture in Europeana

The call for papers is open for a one-day workshop on Archaeology and Architecture in Europeana, organised by CARARE and hosted by the University of Lund, to be held in Lund on the 20th June 2018.

The physical remains of Europe's rich heritage are all around us.  From the historic houses we live and work in, the places we worship, places we visit to explore tombs, earthworks, architectural ruins or monuments to industries past, the museums we visit, the shape of our landscape and the ground beneath our feet.  Digital technologies are widely used to capture the heritage for conservation and research, for analysis, to support learning and tourism, and for enjoyment.

carareThis workshop will explore how digital content for the archaeological and architectural heritage can be made available to users of Europeana, experiences and best practices in providing content, and potential re-uses of the content for education, tourism and researchers.

Topics of interest include:

  • Case studies of archaeology and architecture content in Europeana

  • Approaches to publishing 3D models online for users on Europeana

  • Linking contextual and historical information to digital resources for archaeology and architecture

  • Linked data for archaeology and architecture
