The purpose of the Conference, that will close the research: “Management methodologies and innovative mapping tools for Cultural Heritage. Digital Heritage FOSS (Free and Open Source Software) Tools,  OpenWebGIS, Open-Data”, is to provide an occasion for re-discuss the methodological and practical approaches to the digitization of cultural heritage when connected to the place-based knowledge-making,  transformation  and re-use of cultural landscapes and built environment, in particular concerning minor and delicate heritage sites. We strongly want to target and support a collaborative evidence-based reflection on possible specific models for developing new actions using Open Data and FOOS in Cultural Heritage management, stressing the importance of issues related to communication and information.

A key goal of the Conference, focusing on interdisciplinary questions related to a broad definition of Cultural Heritage, is to raise awareness through up-to-date and innovative researches regarding the role played by democratization in access to data sources as common goods, in a time of transition toward a vast expansion of open-data and copyright-free C.H. policies.

Dealing with the binomial digitization/cultural heritage, a key problem is indeed to handle the relationship between quantitative analysis and typically qualitative outputs (visualization, maps, charts, graphs, drawings), and to consider that qualitative data requires methods for presenting ambiguity and uncertainty in a nuanced way. Hence the Conference also stress the need for an operational approach that can define the new information and communication needs related to historical architecture, minor settled palimpsest and inner areas, landscape re-use projects, in order to deeply understand and to radically renew the close relationship existing between knowledge and project. The increasingly interconnected nature of C.H. sectors in a digital world is also strongly reshaping the decision-making process, opening new perspectives of professional expertise mediation and influence, pushing the boundaries of established enhancement and conservation procedures.


We welcome submissions of papers and projects related (but not limited) to the following themes:


- Linked Open Data for Cultural Heritage 

- Representation and Visual Story Telling of Cultural Heritage

- GIS and FOSS in Cultural Heritage management  

- Role and impact of Open Data in Cultural Heritage information and communication

- Public or collective recovery and enhancement initiatives related to heritage partially abandoned sites

- Cultural Heritage and Urban/Landscape Planning
