Modeling Culture: 3D Archaeology and the Future of the Past

April 1, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 5:30 pm  |  McHenry Library UCSC, Room 4286


Elaine Sullivan, UC Santa Cruz
J. Cameron Monroe, UC Santa Cruz

Conference Theme:
The past decade has witnessed a dramatic surge in the availability and use of digital technologies in Archaeology, where the increasing power and declining cost of computing technology has transformed the way we think about collecting, analyzing, and presenting archaeological data. While many technologies have been adopted and adapted into the field, the potential for 3D modeling is still being explored. This conference asks leading innovators in the use of 3D research methods to present and evaluate the impact and future of this new technology on the study of the past.

Admission is FREE and open to the public. Advance registration is required: Register for the Conference

Call For Digital Presentations:
In addition to the above speakers, we invite submissions for a small number of digital presentations focusing on methodological issues in 3D archaeology. These presentations will be presented in a digital “poster-session” in which presenters will use a devoted widescreen LCD. As such, we discourage traditional powerpoint presentations or simple posters, but rather encourage presentations that will make maximum use of the flexibility afforded by a digital presentation mode. We particularly encourage submissions from graduate students, and small travel stipend is available to defray costs for graduate student presenters. To ensure full consideration, abstracts should be submitted online by February 19th using the link below.
