International Conference EuroMed2010
Dedicated to Digital Heritage 

CALL for Participation

You are kindly invited to the 3rd International Conference EuroMed2010 ( which will provide an opportunity to exchange research results, opinions, experiences and proposals on the best practice and hi-tech virtual, multimedia, and Information and Communications Technologies to document, preserve, manage and communicate Cultural Heritage (CH). In the long tradition of the EuroMed2010 Activities, this cross-disciplinary event brings together computer scientists, archaeologists, architects, librarians, archivists, software developers, game designers, historians, surveyors, museologists, and engineers from across the globe around this year’s common theme of technology applied to heritage. 
To be held at the 5-star Amathus Beach Hotel in Limassol, Cyprus, the Conference is supported by a Scientific Committee of more than 100 renowned professionals for a blind peer review of all submitted papers. The main goal of the event is not only to illustrate the programs underway but also excellent work wherever it is located and however it is supported, in order to promote a common approach to the tasks of e-documentation of World Heritage. To reach this ambitious goal the topics covered will include experiences in the use of innovative recording technologies & methods and how to take best advantage to integrate the results obtained to build up new tools and/or experiences as well as improved methodologies for documenting, managing, and communicating heritage. Furthermore, regional capacities in Cultural Heritage and IT will be facilitated in advancing their know-how through the exchange of information and generation of new ideas and cooperations, where the world meets the finger prints of several ancient civilizations on earth.

The conference is in cooperation with: 
The European Digital Library Foundation (Europeana) and the European Commission Projects: 
3 The EU Member States' Expert Group on Digitization and Digital Preservation. 
5. EuroepeanaLocal (
6. Carrare (
7. 3D-Coform (


The EuroMed2010 event will focus on interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary research concerning both cutting edge Cultural Heritage Informatics and use of technology for the representation, documentation, preservation, archiving and communication of CH knowledge. The scope includes every phase of CH information technology: initial data capture/digitization, information/data processing, reconstruction, visualization, preservation and documentation as well as dissemination of results to the scientific and Cultural Heritage communities and to the general public (Multilingual, Multimedia Digital Library). We are also interested in aspects of the wider legal and ethical responsibilities of Cultural Heritage Informatics. Research subjects parallel the interests of UNESCO, European Commission, ICOMOS/ISPRS, CIPA, ICOMOS, ICIP, and EuroMed including culturally significant monuments, 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 this event are invited to submit papers on original and unpublished work addressing the following subjects: 

Documentation, Recording, and Monitoring 
13D Data Acquisition Technologies & Processing (incl. Photogrammetry & 3D Laserscanning) 
2Photographic and image-based recording (digital, panoramic, HDR, satellite, aerial)
