2nd International Conference on Science and Engineering in Arts, Heritage, and Archaeology (SEAHA)
Hosted by the School of Geography and the Environment
University of Oxford, Oxford, United Kingdom
20-21 June 2016
The 2nd International Conference on Science and Engineering in Arts, Heritage, and Archaeology will be held at the University of Oxford School of Geography and the Environment on 20-21 June 2016. Following the full cycle of creation of data, the development of data into knowledge, and of knowledge to enterprise, this conference embraces the themes of Materials, Environmental and Digital Research with a focus on collaborative work between academia, industry, and heritage institutions. In addition to the podium and poster sessions, the programme will include a morning of hands-on workshops with Analytik and AICON3D, tours of the conservation facilities at the Bodleian Library and the Ashmolean museum, and group discussion on a variety of topics. Two of our confirmed keynotes are also Sir Philip Campbell (Editor-in-Chief, Nature) and Dr. Ewan Hyslop (Head of Technical Research and Science, Historic Environment Scotland). The programme will include networking and social opportunities held in some of the University’s most beautiful and significant architectural settings, including the Divinity School (the oldest teaching room of the University) and St. John’s College.
In July 2015 the 1st International SEAHA Conference was held in London at the University College of London (UCL) and included two-days of presentations, posters, and discussions on heritage science research, innovation, and best practice in the interpretation, conservation, management, and digitization of cultural heritage. Delegates gathered from 20 countries from around the world for an impressive turnout representing scientists, researchers, engineers, professionals, practitioners, entrepreneurs, and policy-makers engaging globally with the emerging trends in the field. The programme included 24 talks, 75 posters, and a round table discussion on “The Future of Heritage Science.”
The abstract submission deadline has been extended to 18 March 2016. Additional information about the conference and abstract submissions can be found on the SEAHA CDT website.
