November 8-11, 2005
ISTI-CNR, Pisa, Italy
The 6th International Symposium on Virtual Reality, Archaeology and Cultural Heritage.
Vast2005 continues the discussions of previous VAST and Eurographics on
Graphics and Cultural Heritage (CH) Symposia. The 2005 VAST Symposium will
focus on interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary research concerning both
innovative CH informatics and use of technology for the representation and
communication of CH knowledge. The scope includes every phase of CH
informatics: initial data capture, information processing, dissemination of
results to the scientific community and the general public, and the wider legal
and ethical responsibilities of Cultural Informatics.
Research subjects parallel the interests of the
EPOCH EU Network
, including culturally significant artifacts and
sites as well as the activities of museums, libraries, archives, and
organizations involved with their care.
Those researchers who wish to participate in the VAST2005 Symposium are invited
to submit papers on original work addressing the following subjects or related
- Multimedia Data Acquisition, Management and Archiving
- 3D Data Capture and Processing
- CAD-based Digital Reconstructions
- Visualization (desktop, VR, AR)
- Computer Animation for CH Applications
- Non-Photorealistic Rendering of CH Data
- Novel Internet-based CH Applications
- Usability, Effectiveness and Interface Design for CH Applications
- Innovative Graphics Applications and Techniques
- Interactive Environments and Applications
- Virtual Museum Applications
- Story-telling and Design of Heritage Communications
- Archaeological Analysis and Interpretive Design
- Tools for Education and Training in CH
- Standards and Documentation
- The Economics of Cultural Informatics and Tourism
- Professional and Ethical Guidelines
We are soliciting three types of contributions:
Full research papers presenting new innovative results. These papers will be
published by Eurographics
in a high-quality proceedings volume.
Project papers focusing on the description of project organization, use of
technology, and lesson learned -- not innovative technical content. These
papers will have a full-length oral presentation and will be included in a
"Projects & Short Papers" proceedings volume.
Short papers presenting preliminary ideas and works-in-progress. These papers
will have a short oral presentation and be available as posters in conference
breaks. They will be published in the "Projects & Short Papers" proceedings
