Digitalization of Cultural Heritage / DOCH

Raum 7 (TBA)

09:00 - 18:00

Donnerstag, 26.09.2024




Armed conflicts and wars, natural disasters as earth quakes and floods as well as air pollution and the traces of time endanger cultural heritage. While digitalization of cultural heritage cannot preserve it physically, it can leave enough information to prevent its complete loss and is thus an important tool for research and the repair and reconstruction of tangible goods. Advances in computer graphics and rendering as well as virtual and augmented reality do not only improve the quality of the information but increasingly allow people to experience cultural inheritage without the need of physical presence. It thus also allows to transcend time and let people experience place in the past.

With this workshop we cover a broad range of topics and perspectives including contributions from Iraq, Kurdistan-Iraq and Sudan. We hope it will serve as a starting point for further exchange and cooperation.
