The 5TH ITALIAN SCHOOL OF VIRTUAL ARCHAEOLGY will be organised by CNR ITABC and CNR ISTI, in cooperation with CINECA and University of Padova, and will be hosted by CNR-ISTI in Pisa. The school originates from the "Virtual Archaeology" national school, organized in 2009-2011 by CNR ITABC and University of Padova. From 2011 the School is part of the VIRTUAL HERITAGE INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL PROGRAM organized by the European Project V-MUST.NET , that connects 5 different national schools (UK; Italy; Cyprus; Sweden; Germany).
The 2013 school will be more focused than the previous editions, with the aim of introducing participants to three main sub-fields:
- processing of 3D/2D sampled data to support the needs and constrain of archaeological documentation and study
- presentation technologies, enabling easy production of multimedia presentation for the web or for museum kiosks
- interpretation and reconstruction of the archaeological and ancient landscape, through Virtual Reality and Computer Graphics techniques
The program includes: lectures from leading experts in the field; intensive exchange among students and teachers living in the same environment; a multidisciplinary approach and the inclusion of practical, hands-on experiences. The lessons will be also focused on the common needs of the practitioners in the field of Cultural Heritage, collected through the input of V-Must partners and the content of the applications to the course.
