In the past, the International Conference on Remote Sensing in Archaeology has been hosted in China, India, and Italy. For the first time in its history, the conference will take place in the United States at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina. The conference theme will be “The Age of Sensing.”
The 1990s will be remembered in the history of archaeology as the age of GIS. Now, we are ready to embrace new methods of recording, interpreting, conceptualizing and communicating archaeological data and relationships across the passage of time. In the next few years, we will have the opportunity to blend the physical world with a sensory-rich ‘virtual’ world where archaeologists can naturally and intuitively manipulate, navigate and remotely share interpretations and case studies. Our understanding of archaeology will be taken to a new level, enhancing our capacity to develop interpretations and to present them to fellow specialists and to the general public as simulated scenarios in 4D.
This conference seeks to explore the age of sensing, broadly defined. Papers and workshops will address different kinds of topics:
- Large Scale Remote Sensing
- Close Range Sensing
- 3D Modeling
- Body sensing
- Immersive Sensing
- Aerial Photography
- GIS and Sensing
- Spatial Technologies and Landscape
- Virtual Landscapes
- Integrated Technologies
- Intra and inter-site Applications
- Lidar Applications
- Sensing and Urban Context
- Cultural Resource Management
- Drones and UAV
- Close Range Sensing
- Remote Sensing
- Virtual Reality and Cyber-Archaeology
- Defining High Standards
- Commercial Archaeological Remote
