The CIPA Workshop on Research and Education in Urban History in the Age of Digital Libraries takes place on October 10-11, 2019 at the Deutsches Hygiene-Museum in Dresden, Germany. It is co-located with the Time Machine Conference 2019. The workshop is an international event for the professionals of multiple disciplines and scholars working in the Digital Cultural Heritage domain. The aim of the workshop is to bring together experts, stakeholders and researchers from the cultural domain, starting a dialogue that will lay out the foundation for the creation of a multidisciplinary community of practice.
Urban history, drawing on architectural heritage and cultural history, is one of the key areas in digital humanities. Regarding to that research interest, digital libraries play an important role, especially for visual media like photographs, paintings, or drawings, but also for physical and digital 3D models. Due to the wide field of possible research, different approaches, methods and technologies have emerged – and are still emerging. We aim to discuss crucial challenges for further research and encourage debate on the state of the art and future work. We would like to invite contributions on theoretical and methodological issues, application scenarios and projects, as well as novel approaches and tools.
