In the 21st century the use of digital technology is a common practice in every day of our lives, contributing to the development, management and delivery of the information that surrounds our environment. Archaeologists and Cultural Heritage scientists as well as Information and Communication Technology (ICT) experts have in the past collaborated to find solutions to optimize all aspects of managing and delivering cultural information to new generations, but there remain many unsolved problems.
The goal of this VAST will be to build on the open dialogue between these different areas of expertise, and in particular allow ICT experts to have a better understanding of the critical requirements of the CH scientists for managing and delivering cultural information. The result of this interaction will be disseminated through use of innovative digital techniques in research and education for Cultural Heritage and through publications: on-going project results; preliminary ideas and works in progress; and overviews of research in the use of digital technology in the context of Cultural Heritage.
We are seeking contributions that advance the state of the art in the technologies available to support cultural heritage..
