Digital Data in the Service of Cultural Heritage

The Estonian Maritime Museum and Tallinn University are pleased to invite scholars and those interested in the fields of heritage, culture, history, and digital humanities to the workshop “Digital Data in the Service of Cultural Heritage”, taking place on 24-25 November 2021 in Tallinn, Estonia via Zoom. The workshop will feature two keynote lectures, nine research presentations, a practical digital skills workshop, and a historical data “hackathon”.

Two scholars have been invited to deliver keynote lectures. On the 24th of November, Pat Tanner (Traditional Boats of Ireland Project) will focus on the use of data capture for digital reconstructions. On the 25th of November, Maximillian Schich (CUDAN Open Lab, Tallinn University) will discuss cultural data analytics in the context of the workshop.

Research presentations will be made on the first day of the workshop. Nine scholars will present on various aspects of analysing, managing, and using digital data to study and maintain cultural heritage in different environments.

The second day of the workshop is organized by Andres Karjus (Tallinn University). It starts with a beginner-friendly practical lesson to provide participants with a common (programming) language, which they will then apply to historical data provided for the workshop “hackathon”.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the workshop and hackathon are organized in a online format. All the talks will be broadcasted online, allowing for questions and comments from the online audience. To apply, please fill in the registration form:    https://meremuuseum.ee/workshop2021/
