An unbelievable challenge started 1996 with the first Cultural Heritage and New Technologies conference! Since then, every year for three days in November the City Hall in Vienna was the stage for up to 250 archaeologists, researchers, IT-specialists and historians working on using new technologies in archaeology and cultural heritage. In addition, companies presented their products in the fields of IT from the sense of using of computer for databases up to 3D modelling, reconstruction, VR and AR and hologram. It was always about how modern technologies can be helpful in research, in the field and in the preparation of finds.
2020 the CHNT will be celebrating this incredible journey and pave the way for new questions within archaeology and cultural heritage.
Accordingly, a New Organisational Committee has been established. It offers scientists the opportunity to immerse themselves in the organisation of a conference and its structures in the background.
Today we will introduce you some of them:
Alexandru Hegyi (University of Cyprus) is archaeologist specialised on geophysics and remote sensing. He participate in several international projects in Romania, Greece, Bulgaria, Montenegro, Hungary, Albania and Greece.
Michael Kempf (Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg) is landscape archaeologist. But reducing him to archaeology would massively falsify his biography: he first studied Geography, Geology and Meteorology before Archaeology and Russian literature! Michael’s major focuse lies on human-environment interactions, digital and spatial modelling, GIS-based environmental analyses and landscape archaeological method and theory.
Melda Küçükdemirci (Istanbul University Cerrahpasa) is Assistant Professor in Geophysical Engineering Department at Istanbul University-Cerrahpaşa. Her research focuses on archaeological prospection, ground-penetrating radar, magnetometry, data integration and deep learning based automated analysis of archaeological remote sensing data.
Elisabeth Monamy (Archeomuse & Universität Bern) is Near Eastern archaeologist focusing on Neo-Assyrian consumption and cooking habits. She wants to reach out to a wide audience who prefer an innovative approach to archaeology and history with her sharing her passions cooking and archaeology.
