The Estonian Maritime Museum and The Tallinn University are pleased to invite everyone interested to the workshop “Digital Data in the Service of Cultural Heritage”, which will take place on the 24th and 25th of November 2021 in Tallinn, Estonia.
The work and research in most sectors of cultural heritage have always involved the collection, analysis, interpretation, management, curation and protection of information and data. In more recent times, the emergence of digital data, created through large-scale digitisation projects of archival materials, cultural heritage objects or sites, have provided researchers, conservators, museum specialists and wider audiences with an unprecedented resource to study, preserve and present our common past.
The use of digital data in cultural heritage is not just about digitising documents and photographs, or creating elaborate 3D models. Modern technological advancements allow us to examine, analyse and understand pieces of cultural heritage through new ways with the use of a variety of software including statistics, GIS, programming languages or even machine learning and AI.
Due to the current situation with the COVID-19 pandemic we have decided to host a ‘hybrid’ workshop accepting both in person and online presentations.
The first day of the workshop will involve presentations as well as a “research and collaboration” session to encourage the exchange of ideas and methodologies of research, as well as the establishment of new collaborations.
The second day will consist mainly of practical sessions led by Andres Karjus, research fellow at the CUDAN lab at Tallinn University.
Our keynote speakers have been confirmed as Dr Pat Tanner and Dr Maximilian Schich.
More information about the programme and content of our workshop will be published later in the summer of 2021.
