    The Digital Future of World Heritage Symposium. 2 – 4 April 2014 Rome, Italy 

    The Digital Future of World Heritage

    A symposium on blended scholarship and management in the new millennium

    April 2 – 4, 2014 Rome, Italy


    Ground-breaking methods of documentation and interpretation of World Heritage Sites is the theme for a collaborative Symposium presented by the University of Notre Dame and the UNESCO World Heritage Center (WHC), in collaboration with Soprintendenza Speciale per i Beni Archeologici di Roma and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Scholars in Sciences and Humanities are trying to uncover a layer of evidence from the past, using the technology of the future, in order to make sense of and reveal a particular reality. With the convergence of both traditional and new technologies, we are able to reveal a greater depth to the story that history has left behind.

    The Symposium will focus on the need for state-of-the-art tools and technologies that transform the way we think about documentation, interpretation, archiving and preservation for future generations. Technology transfer in the Humanities is still in an exploratory phase. Engaging University faculty from other fields with expertise in established technologies, such as georegistration, land and subsurface mapping/imagery, remote sensing, cartography, accelerator mass spectrometry and finite element methods, has the potential to inspire innovative methods of documenting heritage and furthering research on site. The Symposium will also be a platform to present various techniques of merging scientific research with site management, and the benefits of such joint approaches to the improvement and management of World Heritage Sites. Government and State agencies involved in running sites will be introduced to the latest techniques! in documentation, analysis and historic research to study and maintain sites.
