3D Modelling

Cultural Heritage as Data

Data-driven Approach to Advancing Digital Methods for Cultural Heritage Conservation, Management, and Utilization

Date: 23-24 November 2023
Venue: Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) in Daejeon, Republic of Korea
Host: Cultural Heritage Administration of Korea (CHA)
Organizer: Graduate School of Culture Technology, KAIST

The Fourth International Symposium on Digital Heritage (ISDH) will explore data-driven approaches to heritage conservation, management, and utilization, delving into current methodologies and innovative practices in the heritage domain. The aim is to raise awareness about the role of data in the digital heritage landscape, inspiring curiosity and interest among future generations in the field of cultural heritage.

This year’s symposium aligns with the theme of the CIPA International Symposium, “Cultural Heritage Preservation from Bits,” set for joint organization by KAIST and CHA in 2025. The event promises to be a platform for exchanging knowledge, experiences, and visions related to data-driven cultural heritage.

The symposium will be bilingual, offering simultaneous interpretation in both English and Korean.

Time Machine knowledge sharing

Adding to the mix, our Time Machine Organisation Secretary and Project Scouting Lead Strategist, Sander Münster, will share insights in a lecture on the current state of 3D modeling for humanities research and education. It’s a chance to gain a better understanding of how 3D modeling is impacting these areas.

Visual digital humanities encompass a wide range of research approaches to explore and communicate complex visual information to answer humanities research questions. One core technology is 3D digital modeling and especially 3D reconstruction. During the presentation, I will report on and discuss current trends and challenges for employing 3D technologies for humanities research and education. That includes, for example, motivational design, data management, visualization, and modeling. In addition, I will report on results and research perspectives from the EU Time Machine and previous and ongoing projects by my chair.
