Digital Approaches to Art History and Cultural Heritage
Merton College Oxford
12-13 June

Digital technologies are transforming the ways in which scholars study
visual sources and cultural heritage. Digitisation renders collections more
accessible, while computer vision algorithms enable researchers to trace
patterns across large datasets of images and chart new avenues of research.
At the same time, 3D modelling techniques capture and digitally preserve
cultural heritage structures and artefacts threatened by war, climate
change or over-tourism, while virtual reality transports audiences to
palaces, monuments, or places of worship,widening access to such sites.

This conference brings together researchers, students, and professionals
from art history, museology, digital humanities, geography, history,
archeology, classics and computer science, who are interested in exploring
digital approaches to the study of visual and material culture. The
conference explores how researchers are integrating digital tools into
their research, introduces new audiences to cutting edge technologies and
methodologies, and critically assesses the opportunities and challenges
that such approaches present.

Day 1: Digital Approaches to Art History (Digital Visual Studies).
The first day is devoted to investigating new digital and computational
approaches to the study of visual culture. Topics include: digital imaging,
computer vision, network analysis, visual Distant Reading, digital research
infrastructures, data standards, institutional projects, digitisation and
digital publishing projects.

Day 2: Digital Approaches to Architectural and Cultural Heritage (Sites and
The second day focuses on digital approaches to capturing, displaying and
studying three dimensional cultural sites and objects. This includes data
capture, 3D and 4D modelling, and virtual anastylosis. It likewise treats
the display, exploration and research of cultural heritage sites using new
technologies, including but not limited to virtual and augmented reality.

We invite proposals for 20 minute presentations which engage with any of
the above topics or which reflect critically on the integration of digital
tools into the study of art history and cultural heritage. Abstracts of no
more than 500 words and a 100 biography can be submitted at the following
URL: https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/DAH2020/Track/1/Submission/Create.
The organisers will seek to publish selected papers in an edited volume.

Organised by Lia Costiner (Merton College, Oxford) & Leonardo Impett
(Biblioteca Hertziana, Rome).

        Subject: Call for proposals - Digital Diplomatics 2020, Graz, April 7th, 2020

In the several years since the last conference/workshop dedicated to the
study of Digital Diplomatics, new technologies have emerged and new
projects have come to fruition. This conference/workshop will bring
together selected leading and upcoming experts in the study of Digital
Diplomatics and related fields, to facilitate a productive exchange on
the state and the future of the field. The conference will include
expert panels, lightning talks, and a poster session, which is currently
open for submissions. We are soliciting posters on any subject related
to the study of charters and computing, including:

* Machine Learning for Digital Diplomatics
* Linguistic Corpora for Digital Diplomatics
* Digitally Mediated Archives for Diplomatics
* The Future of Diplomatics

The poster session will be attended by leading experts in the field.
Currently confirmed guests include: Antonella Ambrosio (Naples),
Sébastien Barret (CNRS), Michael Gervers (Toronto), Tobias Hodel (Bern),
Timo Korkiakangas (Helsinki), Els De Parmentier (Ghent), Peter Stokes
(Paris), and Zarko Vujesovic (Vienna/Belgrade).

Submission Guidelines:

Please send a 100-word abstract of the poster project and a short C.V.
to Sean Winslow sean.winslow@uni-graz.at. Though there is a hard
deadline of 17 March 12:00 GMT, proposals received before then will be
evaluated on a rolling basis, and a decision will be made within a week
of receipt, and by 19 March at the latest.

Looking forward to your submissions!
