International conferences are an integral part of scientific research for a variety of reasons. Participants can inform themselves about the newest developments in their field of study, share their work with a wide audience, get inspiration for their research and make connections that might lead to future collaborations or career developments.
It is important for young researchers, who are at the beginning of their career, to not only visit conferences but also to present in them. Throughout their career there will be numerous occasions in which they have to present and explain their work to an audience. Making early on experiences in giving talks and learning to do so in a clear and coherent way is thus very important.
This sessions gives PhD and Master students the opportunity to practice their presentation skills in the framework of a large international conference and to show their work to a diverse audience of peers and experts from various fields. It is open to presentations about research that uses a digital toolkit to study and document cultural heritage in a novel and innovative way. Since it is not restricted to a specific field of study and only tied to the general theme of the conference, this session will be very diverse and cover a range of topics that might not be discussed in other sessions. This diversity in topics, scientific and educational background of the presentations and the people participating will enable a lively discussion and a comparison of different approaches and ideas among the audience and the various presenters.
Therefore, this session is not only intended to promote the future generation of researchers, but also to contribute to the overall diversity of the conference and to bring fresh new ideas to the table.
