4th International Symposium on Cultural Heritage Conservation and Digitization - CHCD 2016

Call for Participation

When we lose our history we lose our culture, and when we lose our culture we lose our history and even more so, our identity. Today this situation is getting worse as historical sites are lost, broken or destroyed. The advances in modern technologies and methodologies allow us to recreate, rebuild, and reanimate significant lost sites and objects of our past. But we need to combine technology more intelligently and with more creativity, with the end result being better adaptation and more significance into the daily lives of humanity.
