Life-cycle of a Digital Object Workshop

Following University College London’s very successful conference on 3D Colour Laser Scanning in March 2008 we are planning a 2-day workshop exploring the life-cycle of a digital object.

The workshop is funded by JISC through the Arts and Humanities e-Science Support Centre (AHeSSC).

Who is invited?
The workshop is aimed at anyone interested in user engagement with 3D objects. It will help researchers and professionals better understand how to use 3D objects and related digital data records. It will be particularly relevant for conservators, curators and educators wanting to use 3D or 2D records of museum artefacts and for Arts and Humanities researchers interested in this field.

What will be covered?
3rd September.

The first day will offer opportunities for small group guided tours of relevant UCL facilities. Delegates will have the opportunity to discuss practical applications of the technologies with existing users:
Arius3D colour laser scanner
CAVE Virtual Environment
UCL Interaction Centre (UCLIC): a centre of excellence in human-computer interaction Slade School of Fine Art: use of a hand held scanner in art classes Digital Petrie Exhibition (in the making) Digital Manufacturing centre, Bartlett School of Architecture The day concludes with a wine reception.

4th September

The second day will feature talks and presentations on a range of topics, including 3D colour laser scanning and standards, 3D objects in virtual environments, 3D colour printing, the life cycle of an object and digital repatriation. More information is available here.

The workshop is FREE to attend but numbers are restricted to 50. Register now to confirm your place.  Booking closes on 15 August 2009.
