Microsoft Research Asia, in partnership with National Palace Museum and National Taiwan University, hosted the 2010 Microsoft eHeritage Workshop, May 18–19, in Taipei, Taiwan.
Exploring Cultural Heritage Preservation through Advances in Technology
Advanced computing research and practices have played, and will continue to play, an important role in helping to preserve, represent, and provide public access to cultural heritages.
The eHeritage workshop will unite researchers who are interested in applying their research towards eHeritage efforts with scholars, curators, librarians, designers, and educators from museums and heritage sites, who are using information technology and facing challenges to provide more digital services. The workshop will provide these experts with an opportunity to meet and exchange research results and to foster collaboration.
Microsoft Research will provide updates on selected research developments and activities, presentations of best practices from university faculty members, a poster session, group discussions, and exciting demos. We welcome invited speakers and invited poster presenters to present their current research in areas including, but not limited to, the following:
- Data Acquisition in cultural heritage, including 2-D/3-D scanning systems, photogrammetry, web cams, mobility and site monitoring, remote sensing, and GIS for heritage.
- Data Processing and Analysis in cultural heritage, including 3-D and large-scale sites’ modeling, data storage and process via cloud platform pattern recognition, metadata mining and retrieval, interactive visualization, and processing of digital information (images, graphics, video, and audio) to aid research.
- Data Utilization for digital archives, exhibition, dissemination, and education, including new ways to display via any devices; novel Internet-based cultural heritage applications; and usability, effectiveness, and interface design.
The goals of the 2010 workshop include the following:
- Build a bridge between art, humanities, and archaeology scholars and information technology researchers to share, exchange, and identify eHeritage solutions.
- Foster inter-disciplinary collaboration between experts in computer science technology and cultural heritage to improve delivery of preservation and dissemination.
- Discuss a vision for eHeritage technologies moving forward.
