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 the future:
Digital 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.
