Dear friends and colleagues,
Usual apologies for cross posting.
We have pleasure in announcing the DART heritage remote sensing horizon scanning workshop at Leeds on the 17th September 2013. This builds on the successful workshop in 2011.
In the morning we will summarise the advances made by the DART project. In the afternoon we will hold focussed discussions on the impact of projects like DART on different stakeholder communities and how we might want the future to look.
Further background details are below and flyers can be found here: http://goo.gl/ij2lw and http://goo.gl/AiB5I
Please register at EventBrite: http://dartproject.eventbrite.com/
The event is free. However, places are limited and do need booking in advance. We do have a travel bursary fund: application details are on the flyer.
Please distribute this announcement to any interested colleagues.
We hope to see you on the 17th.
The DART team

Aims & Objectives
* To provide an overview of the DART research advances and data outputs.
* To examine how DART outputs can be used by different stakeholder communities.
* To identify areas of development that build on DART.
* To influence future policy objectives, research directions and funding programmes that support similar approaches

the DART Project: Background
Detection of Archaeological Residues using remote sensing Techniques (DART) is nearing completion of a three year, Science and Heritage funded initiative. To examine the complex problem of heritage detection DART has attracted a consortium consisting of 25 key heritage and industry organisations, academic consultants and researchers.
Enhanced knowledge of archaeological residues is important for the long-term curation and understanding of a diminishing heritage. There are certain geologies and soils which can complicate the collection and interpretation of heritage remote sensing data. In some of these 'difficult' areas traditional detection techniques have been unresponsive.
Over a 14 month period the DART project has intensively collected different geotechnical, environmental, geophysical and remote sensing data. The project team have analysed these data and started to develop a deeper understanding of contrast factors and detection dynamics. This workshop will share these results and examine ways in which they can be best used to improve research, practice, curation and engagement.
We need your help to define outputs which will benefit the whole heritage community.
