19th International Conference on Cultural Heritage and New Technologies (November 3rd-5th 2014, Vienna - Austria) - CALL for PAPERS, POSTERS, VIDEOS
The URBAN ARCHAEOLOGY of Vienna and cooperation partners would like to invite you to join the 19th International Conference on Cultural Heritage and New Technologies as speaker or presenter.

Urban Archaeology and Processing ….Analysing the data

Excavation, field walking, watching briefs, survey – in fact any archaeological activity accrues “things” – notes, plans, photos, data and any number of finds. To make sense of them and use the information they contain to contribute to the archaeological narrative they must be processed, analysed, and interpreted.

The Call is still open - until16th May
Send us your abstracts
More details:- - www.chnt.at --
If you have further questions, please contact me

SEE YOU IN VIENNA - VIENNA WAITS FOR YOU!!

I'm going to be in Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil (Brazilian Remote Sensing Symposium); in Cancun, Mexico (AGU Meeting of the Americas); and in Melbourne, Australia (IGARSS) this year. I'd love to meet you guys there! Cheers, Marcio.

Cross-validation methods for image classification. In which step ? In the RAW classified result or in the post processed (salt & pepper cleanup) ?

Marcio Pupin Mello My thoughts: it depends on your goal. If I may I'd recommed the book:
Congalton, R. and K. Green. 2009. Assessing the Accuracy of Remotely Sensed Data: Principles and Practices. 2nd Edition. CRC/Taylor & Francis, Boca Raton, FL 183p.

18th International Conference on Cultural Heritage and New Technologies 2013 (11th-13th November 2013 - Vienna, Austria) - www.stadtarchaeologie.at
CALL for SESSIONS, Workshops and Round Tables

The main topic of the “International Conference on Cultural Heritage and New Technologies 2013” will be “DOCUMENTATION”.

We would like to invite you to organise and chair a Session, Workshop or Round Table. If you are interested, please send us an abstract (Call – proposal) until 20th January 2013 (Call proposal 200-300 words). Abstract: mailto:wolfgang.boerner@stadtarchaeologie.at
The notification of the sessions, workshops and round tables – 30th January 2013

Documentation of archaeological and cultural heritage sites is at the heart of the archaeological process and an important component in cultural heritage research and presentation. It is an essential step without which interpretation and analysis are not possible. It is what makes archaeology and cultural heritage "scientific".
Maybe we are storytellers. If so, the type of story we tell is heavily influenced by our way of collecting and organising our archaeological data.
But can we speak about CORRECT documentation or should we talk only about usable and non-usable documentation?
The contemporary field is plagued by the involvement of operators each with their own new tools. They propose solutions and suggest methods but are often in blissful ignorance of the past investigations of the item, site or cultural heritage they are working on. New technology, however, has to support our research. Its use still depends on what we want to know next (our research). The best solution is to have an underpinning of basic documentation that allows any new researcher to easily access the core record. Then they can then enrich the documentation with the results of their new method, analysis and ideas.
It may be possible to build the ultimate recording system, but the information we feed it is always potentially unreliable. How do we know when our record is good - has integrity? What indicates that it might be bad – lacking integrity?
Models are there to be used, not believed. Documentation is always for a certain purpose and depending on that purpose, a set of documentation may be regarded as good or bad, as “fit for purpose”. There will never be absolute "true", "correct" or "right" documentation.
An abstract model of documentation should consist of the attributes we record of the real world traits that we observe. The set of attributes that we choose to record (out of the infinite set of possibilities) are the ones that our current state of knowledge and our research aims (and therefore designs) suggest will be the most useful to our current research aims/agenda. If we want to reuse data beyond the current research project/agenda then we must be very explicit about why, how and what we record. This is the so called “para” data and goes beyond meta data to include the “how” and “why” of data capture.

There are also very important points which should be should be considered.
1. Documentation should be available for scientific research
2. Documentation should be comparable with old and future documents
3. Documentation can be used for monitoring and preservation of national cultural heritage
4. Documentation has to be suitable to fight illicit actions. Without a good documentation it is hard or impossible to find stolen objects.
5. Documentation has to enable repair or reconstruction, at least virtually

CALL FOR SESSIONS, ROUND TABLES
Documentation is the main topic of this year’s conference and an import issue to consider in all our work.
We would like to ask for “Session proposals” that invite researchers using new technologies to come forward and discuss what documentation they are using and why.

Deadline: 20th January 2013
Abstract: 200-300 words (mailto:wolfgang.boerner@stadtarchaeologie.at)
Notification: 30th January 2013
