Making 3D Visual Research Outcomes Transparent


The event will take place in London, at the British Academy and the Centre for Computing in the Humanities, King's College and is part of the standards activity carried on by EPOCH, the European Network of Excellence on Intelligent Applications of ICT to Cultural Heritage funded by the European Commission under the 6th FP.

On Thursday 23rd and Friday 24th February in the British Academy, through a combination of presentations, discussion and plenary sessions, the participants will attempt to assess current practice, identify key issues and examples of good practice, and broadly sketch the parameters of a consensus on the principles that should inform the drafting of a standard for 3D visualisation research documentation. It is hoped that the Symposium will include an interdisciplinary panel of scientists, social scientists, engineers, metadata implementation experts and archaeologists, discussing current practice in process-tracking in research contexts, where this is an essential and well-established part of their disciplines.

On Saturday 25th February, at King's College London's Centre for Computing in Humanities, a smaller Expert Seminar will meet to attempt to create a first draft of a proposed International Standard for Documentation of 3D Visualisation-based Cultural Heritage Projects. This draft will be widely circulated within the 3D visualisation, stake-holder and standards communities. A report and proceedings of the Symposium will also be published, together with a Research Methods Guide, in the context of the relevant Methodologies Centre and EPOCH activities.
