V-MusT UK Summer School

VIRTUAL RESTORATION AND RECONSTRUCTION in a LONDON CHARTER FRAMEWORK 
http://www.v-must.net/schools/united-kingdom-virtual-heritage-school

Department of Digital Humanities, King's College London, 10-20 September 2012

The UK Virtual Heritage School explores the theory and best practice in heritage visualisation. The school is offered by the Department of Digital Humanities at King's College London, UK and is led by King's Visualisation Lab (KVL), which specialises in the creation of digital visualisations for historical research, archaeology and cultural heritage. KVL is well known for its leadership in establishing and promoting international standards for such work, most notably through the London Charter for the Computer-based Visualisation of Cultural Heritage. The School syllabus is guided by the principles of this charter.

The School programme reflects the tutors' expertise in 3D documentation and visual representation for archaeology, historic buildings, museums and historical research. Through a combination of demonstrations, workshops, lectures and field trips, the School provides a sound overview of the range of digital visualisation technologies and methods used in the area of cultural heritage and virtual museums. Postgraduate students, early-career researchers and cultural heritage professionals are particularly encouraged to attend. International participants are welcome if proficient in English.

The School runs for ten days and offers two paths: a theoretical strand, which can be taken alone (half-day), and a practical strand, which can be taken alongside the theoretical strand (full-day). The theoretical strand introduces participants to key topics in virtual cultural heritage and virtual museums, while the practical strand teaches participants how to use Open-Source digital image editing and 3D modelling software to virtually restore or reconstruct artefacts and monuments according to internationally-accepted principles of best practice. The School visualisation project will be concerned with the Roman(?) bath in Strand Lane, London. The School is run in co-operation with cultural institutions in central London and includes visits to the British Museum and University College London Museums and Collections. 

The fees for the entire school are 150 (theory) or 350 (theory & practice).
Application deadlines: 31 July 2012 and 31 August 2012

The School is an activity of the Virtual Museums Transnational Network of Excellence (www.v-must.net). The Network is supported by the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7 2007/2013) under the Grant Agreement 270404.
