ITN-DCH FINAL CONFERENCE is an international event for the professionals of multiple disciplines and scholars working in the Digital Cultural Heritage domain. The aim of the conference is to bring together experts, stakeholders and researchers from the cultural domain and, addressing the current challenges, start a dialogue that will lay the foundation for the creation of a multidisciplinary community of practice..
The“Initial Training Network for Digital Cultural Heritage: Projecting our Past to the Future” with acronym ITN-DCH, is the first and one of the largest Marie Curie fellowship projects in the area of the e-documentation / e-preservation and CH protection funded by the European Union under the FP7 PEOPLE research framework. The Project started on the 1st of October 2013 and its consortium comprising of 14 full partners and 10 associate members covering the entire spectrum of European CH actors, ranging from academia, research institutions, industry, museums, archives and libraries. The project aims to train 20 fellows (16 ESR’s and 4 ER’s – 500 person months) in the area of CH digital documentation, preservation and protection in order to create them a strong academic profile and market oriented skills which will significantly contribute to their career prospects.
Digital Cultural Heritage is a complex domain that requires new requires new skills, advanced techniques and constantly upgrading know-how; for the fulfillment of which a multilevel training and an interdisciplinary collaboration among experts is necessary in order for common methodologies and best practises for the profound understanding of our past to be established. It is important to create a forum of discussion where diverse leading academic scientists, researchers, practitioners and educators are brought together to exchange and share their experience, as well as confront each others on the challenges and advancements in each of their domain. The scope of the conference is, therefore, to:
To this cause, we are seeking for original and innovative contributions in theoretical and practical applications on Digital Cultural Heritage, in the following themes., we are seeking original and innovation contributions in theoretical and practical applications of digital cultural heritage.

The conference aims at encouraging the discussion between young researchers, scientists and experts in the area of digital applications for the analysis of cultural heritage object/practices, as well as exchange of ideas and opinions. One of the aims is also to inform the researchers and professionals interested in safeguarding heritage assets in earthquake prone areas about possibilities offered by digital technologies.
The conference provides the perfect platform for examining the new research opportunities and professional collaborations. Furthermore, it will support the networking between different disciplines; support the initial stage of researchers' carriers and the enhancement of young researchers' networks.
A brief outline of the goals of the conference is:
The aim of the workshop is to introduce the participants to the concept of linked data and to a selection of data curation tools that can be used for re-using and integrating data from across data silos (including examples from tangible and intangible heritage), including a demonstration of how semantically map them. The tutorial will make use of open source tools and existing standard resources for from the cultural heritage domain in order to demonstrate this process. Emphasis will be laid on the transformation of existing resources (CSV, XML etc.) into RDF, through the use of data transformation mapping tools.
The workshop will last a half day and it will promote a hands-on knowledge of several important tools that are daily used by professionals in the field. Participants will finish the workshop with a greater familiarity with both the overall workflow and strategy for creating linked data but also a basic hands-on knowledge of a number of different software and data tools that would allow them to create and manipulate their own linked data by taking advantage of existing resources in the different communities (CH, public administration, GIS, etc.). They will also have been introduced to the role of Ontologies in integrating data and how to use a mapping tool to harmonise data at the schema level to a formal ontology standard.
The workshop will make use of:
We are going to demonstrate the possible applications of these softwares, as well as the methodologies behind them, using diverse datasets from four museums:
We specifically chose collection datasets containing information about works of art from Picasso.
In order to have a unique working environment we set up a vagrant virtual machine with OpenRefine, some utilities and the files we will be used during the workshop. The Vagrant VM is available clicking here. For the instruction on how to use it please refer to the Wiki page here. Please Download it and install everything before the workshop.
In order to use 3M it is necessary to register to the service. You can do it at this address: http://126.96.36.199/3M/SignUp?lang=en
The third day will be dedicated to practical session and open space discussions. Three main subjects will be identified during the meeting. Two cultural heritage sites will be visited: Olimje Monastery and Podsreda Castle. On each site the use of equipment and data acquisition exercise will be presented and the discussion on various aspects of digital heritage related to visited sites will be organized.
The Workshop aims to introduce the audience in the current state of the 3D documentation in CH. Through practical session; the participants will be introduced into the most common techniques in 3D documentation of CH (photogrammetry, laser scanner, structured light scanner) and software. Additionally, the workshop has the goal to enhance the skills of the audience and create a young scientist space for debating and exchange of ideas, knowledge and trace future research and technological directions.
All speakers will be given 10 minutes to present their research work to the audience as well as additional 2-3 minutes for fruitful discussion
