“This is how we know…”

Call for Science Slam Marleen de KRAMER1 | Piotr KUROCZYŃSKI2 (1University of Luxembourg | 2Arbeitsgruppe Digitale Rekonstruktion, Germany) Provenance is pedestrian? Hermeneutics is humdrum? Metadata are mundande? Not for our competitors! Are you researching heritage, from student to established professional? Are you really enthusiastic about your project? Can you explain it in a way that wows your audience, without relying on the traditional “slide show and a paper” format? Then this session is for you! In our science slam, you have eight minutes to show us why your research matters! The theme is “this is how we know” and the mission is simple: explain and entertain! While PowerPoint and other slide show formats are banned, you can use any props, costumes, or technology you like, from painting a picture to performing an experiment live on stage. The audience will have the final say, voting on factors like clarity and entertainment value. Are you better together? You can also compete as a team! To enter, submit a 250 word written abstract (with images) in Word or PDF format, or send in a brief 2-4 minute video (doesn’t have to be high quality) that demonstrates your topic and the format you plan to use....

Teaching Digital Methods

Call for Short Papers Nadine Alpino1 │ Stephen Stead2(1DOKU PLUS S.à r.l., Luxembourg | 2Paveprime Ltd., UK) Keywords: teaching, digital methods, exchange Every year we see presentations of fantastic results at CHNT which are, besides being traditional research, products of a range of digital techniques. We also see such digital methods becoming popular in spheres like of art and museums. It almost seems like everybody understands how these approaches work: but is that really true?  Have you ever tried to get a definition of a “point cloud” from a cultural heritage professional?Digital methods are still relatively new in the study of art history and some sub-disciplines of archaeology. So, how do we establish, teach and familiarise people who are as yet far from digital methods with their potential? Where are the sources of introductory material for the uninitiated on the fields of photo- and laser scanning, GIS, 3D-reconstruction and the myriad of other new techniques? How can we deliver an idea of the possibilities or create hand-on workshops that will inspire students and professionals alike?These and similar questions are the topics for our round table. We hope to discuss, exchange experiences and get an idea of the needs of the students in these disciplines. Most importantly we want to consider how to take this forward, perhaps by starting or joining an existing exchange platform, co-working with special interest groups or building a network of likeminded professionals. Time extent180 Minutes Duration of presentationsMaximum of 10 Minutes Target group(future) teachers, students, archaeologists, art historians, historians, members of special interest groups SubmissionMind the new...

Visitor-Centered Intelligence for Cultural Heritage Sites

Call for Papers Andi SMART | Pikakshi MANCHANDA | David ROSS | Cristina MOSCONI(University of Exeter, United Kingdom) Keywords: Visitor Intelligence, Audience Research, Visitor Experience, Artificial Intelligence, Data Analytics Obtaining intelligence on visitor motivations and behaviours is an essential activity in the creation and improvement of visitor experiences. Innovative digital technologies provide affordances for the collection and analysis of visitor data that have previously not been possible. New approaches, capitalising on digital technologies, provide rich insights into visitor profiles, behaviour and experience, and help identify target audiences and inform the design of new interpretative experiences. These insights provide opportunities to compliment, and extend established methods for Audience Research. Key themes may include: Geospatial analysis – data collected using tracking devices, which offer insights into users’ dwell times at areas of interest, and the visitor journey;On/off site visitor surveys can provide psychographic, socio-demographic and experience assessment of visitor segments;Natural Language Analysis – a growing body of data from social media platforms can be analysed using Natural Language Processing (NLP) tools in order to understand visitor sentiment;Speech Recognition/Analysis – speech recognition tools support the automatic transcription of oral feedback recorded at the visitor’s convenience, allowing the analysis of comments;Visual Attention and Fixation – visitor gaze time data collected using eye tracking devices (Pupil Centred Corneal Reflection), which can provide evidence into popular site artefacts;Experiential Analysis – new ways of articulating the visitor experience. This may include experiential interactions, experiential outcomes and emotions. The aforementioned sources and methods provide an accessible way for Cultural Heritage Site managers to gain a comprehensive picture of their visitor profiles and experience, and assess which aspects require more attention. This session is open to papers (comparative or case-based studies) focusing on the challenges encountered in analysing visitor data in terms of lack of resources, datasets or digital privacy and data protection concerns, as well as computational approaches for capturing and analysing such data to obtain a better understanding of visitor motivations, interactions and experiences.
