Workshop 'Integrating 4D, GIS and Cultural Heritage'
Leuven, Bélgica, 14 de mayo de 2013


Abundant use of GIS in the archaeological field is challenged by the perspective of GIS as a time consuming, non-standardized tool. The standardization available in geoscience research, with the effort of the Open Geospatial consortium (OGC), is currently lacking in archaeology. Archaeological standardization is up to this point defined by local organizations and rather consists of formats than real standards. There is not such a thing as a single GIS available that can store and analyze the diversity of data archaeologists often have to deal with. Also, time aspects, uncertainty, multi-dimensionality, multivocality and subjectivity are not or not sufficiently supported by current systems to be easily accessible and understandable. As such, the tools to be developed should be adapted to the data available.


On the road to create a collaboratively built standard, we invite submissions of short papers (max. 1500 words) describing original research addressing the challenge of combining archaeological data and GIS. Preference is given to papers focusing on one (or more) specific aspect(s) of the archaeological data complexity, i.e. data-imperfection, temporality, three-dimensionality, etc.
All submissions must be sent in electronically through the online conference manager via the workshop website:
Submission deadline: 31/03/2013
Notification of acceptance: 15/04/2013
