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:
