The call for papers for the 24th conference
on Cultural Heritage and New Technologies (CHNT 24), taking place on
November 4-6, 2019 in Vienna, is now open.
Short presentations of 10 minutes are welcome for the
round table Visualizing Hypotheses: Practical Handling of Uncertainty in
Digital 3D Models, which is organized by Christiane Clados (University of
Marburg) and Heike Messemer (Universität Würzburg, Urban History 4D) as members
of the working group “AG Digitale Rekonstruktion”.
The aim of this round table is to bring together
scholars from different disciplines to discuss how hypotheses and uncertainties
are visualized in scientific 3D reconstructions and how this can be handled in
3D reconstructions of cultural artefacts, historical characters and
architecture contribute to a better understanding of cultural heritage. In the
broad user community, experts from various fields such as architecture,
archaeology, art history, palaeontology, forensic anthropology, museology
generate 3D reconstructions in order to gain insights into no longer existing
evidence. Therefore, such reconstructions are a critical tool for the
“translation” of scientific data into visualizations, which make these
accessible to the expert community and the general public.
due to knowledge gaps within the diverse set of underlying sources,
uncertainties are part of nearly all digital models.
