From Cyberinfrastructures to Science Clouds.
A co-located event with the ISGC 2018
Taipei, Academia Sinica, March 19th, 2018

Call for Abstracts

The trend for data publication, sharing and re-using is nowadays influencing all scientific domains and may have a dramatic impact on the documentation, conservation and communication of Cultural Heritage too.
Solving issues such as the discoverability of published data, their interoperability, integration and open access may foster data re-use and improve the quality and extent of scientific research on CH, also supporting its communication and citizens’ understanding and participation. Progress in digital research is a key factor of this new paradigm and cloud services appear to be potentially disruptive in creating a data-based scientific approach to heritage sciences.
The symposium will address current achievements, policies, and strategies with a global perspective, presenting state-of-the-art examples of how digital technologies have been successfully applied to heritage conservation, documentation and communication.
Contributions are welcome in the following thematic areas, which will be covered in three sessions plus a final discussion panel:

  • Session 1 – Documenting heritage
  • Session 2 – Documenting science
  • Session 3 – Communicating heritage
  • Panel session – Global policies and strategies for science clouds
