The host institutions of the 6th conference “Digital Encounters with Cultural Heritage” invite you to tackle the problem of dealing with cultural heritage which has lost its physical manifestations – in parts or completely – or which did not have any form of physical manifestation at all. This includes the requirements for recording and passing on such forms of a cultural heritage which originated in the digital world (born-digital).
Proposed presentations should highlight the usual forms of scientific work on and the documentation of intangible cultural heritage. Furthermore, they should present the associated forms of computer-based approaches.
We hope for presentations which cover the following topics:
Approaches which summarize traditional forms of documentation and research and also present results of computer-based methods would be especially interesting.
The computer-based visualisation as a supporting aspect of the scientific discourse is of special interest to the conference. The primary concern is to find answers to the question of which conditions have to be fulfilled to enable the computer-based visualisation to become a core element of the scientific discourse.
