Call for papers: Virtual Cultural Heritage in Ireland (Dublin, 27-28 Feb 14)

Virtual Cultural Heritage in Ireland
The State-of the Art and Visions for the Future
A Workshop for Cultural Heritage Professionals, Industry, Researchers and Funders

Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, February 27 - 28, 2014
Deadline: Jan 30, 2014

09:00-17:30 Thursday 27 February 2014 and  09:00-16:30 Friday 28 February 2014 - Trinity College Dublin

This workshop will capture the state of the art of, and future visions for the digital recording, documenting, interpreting and communication
of cultural heritage objects and environments in Ireland. Virtual Cultural Heritage technologies include the use of lasers and light to
determine geometry, digital photo modelling for supplying shape and texture, and software and hardware platforms to compute, model,
interact with and publish virtual objects and environments.

Submissions of abstracts for papers related to all areas of the VCH-Ireland workshop are welcome. Abstracts should be no longer than
300 words with a view to producing a paper approximately 2500 words in length. We also welcome proposals for practical workshop demonstrations
which may or may not be supplemented by papers. Participants may submit more than one abstract/proposal, but only one paper/demonstration by
the same first participant will be accepted. Panel and paper proposals from PhD students and early career scholars are particularly welcome,
and we would also encourage the inclusion of a short Bio/Profile.
Accepted papers will be published in a new web-portal for Virtual Cultural Heritage in Ireland. All abstracts/proposals should be
submitted in PDF format and include the Title, Author(s) and Affiliation(s).

Abstracts should be submitted to no later than 30 January 2014 and notifications of acceptance will be sent out by 7
February 2014. Completed papers will be expected by 7 March 2014.
