Digital Geoarchaeology 2013 Conference in Heidelberg

Our GIScience group is supporting the conference Digital Geoarchaeology 2013 – New Technologies for Interdisciplinary Human-Environmental Research, which takes place in Heidelberg from 7-8 November 2013. The LiDAR Research Group will co-organize a one-day workshop on LiDAR in Geoarchaeology – Terrestrial Laser Scanning in Theory and Practice on 9 November 2013.

Having its major focus on New Technologies for Interdisciplinary Human-Environmental Research, the symposium aims at bringing together researchers from different disciplines, who deal with the investigation of human-environmental interactions.

We would like to cordially inivite you to attend our meeting and to enter into a cross-disciplinary dialogue between scientists from various subjects like Archaeology, Computer Sciences, Geography, Geoinformatics, History, etc. Besides stimulation of collaboration, common fields of work are to be identified and discussed from different scientific perspectives in order to better understand past relationships between man and environment and to protect cultural heritage.
