The Digital Domains workshop at Dartmouth College, scheduled for March 20 - 22, 2014. With support from the Neukom Institute of Computational Science, the workshop will bring together archaeologists, engineers, and computer scientists from the US, Mexico, and Europe to share research that reconstructs and engages archaeological landscapes through remote sensing and GIS.
Attendance is free and open to the academic community, so please feel free to share information about the workshop with your students and colleagues.
The conference features two papers of immediate interest to archaeologists of the ancient Near East:
Jesse Casana and Jackson Cothren: The CORONA Atlas Project:
Regional-scale archaeological prospection and site morphometric analysis in the Near East
Bjoern Menze and Jason Ur: Using Micro Unmanned Aerial Vehicles in Archaeological Prospection – a Discussion of Potential Applications for the ‘Erbil Plain Archaeology Survey’ (EPAS)
You can find more information about the conference and the speakers on the Digital Domains website (listed).
Students and scholars who use computing to reconstruct, visualize, and analyze past and present environments are encouraged to submit applications to present a poster which will be displayed during afternoon and evening receptions. Contact me directly before February 3rd to submit a poster abstract or to request more information.
