Pre-conference event: Expert-meeting:
Building a Digital Platform for Media Heritage in 3-D
Thursday, September 10, 11.00-14.30
The pre-conference event revolves around the recently launched pilot project Digital Media Heritage which aims at developing a prototype of an online platform that affords innovative ways to present, contextualize, and (virtually) engage with culturally and/or historically significant media objects. One of the features of this project will be the display of historical media objects in 3-D. Ultimately, this project strives to go beyond the scope, purposes, and practices of conventional online archives and repositories by equipping its platform with functions and features for facilitating research, education, curation, and international collaborations between media archives, universities, museums, and other, related institutions.
This expert meeting is a pre-conference event of the international conference ‘Changing Platforms of Memory Practices”. The expert meeting is free. We are looking for people to join our first preliminary results and help us make this project stronger. Do you like to share your expertise, showcase a similar project or just want to be there? Then please join us at this pre-conference. You are also cordially invited to apply for a time slot to give a short presentation on the topic of the event as described above.
Location: infoversum 3D full-dome theater
