International Workshop “Documentation, Interpretation, Preservation & Presentation”

The DIP&P Research Group, an international collaboration of researchers from Germany, Italy, Turkey and the UK, develops and tests new digital tools for the study of the ancient civilizations of Turkey, in particular the culture of the Hittites and the Hittite capital Hattuša-Boğazköy. The group includes archaeologists, architects, epigraphists, philologists and IT specialists who work in close collaboration with engineers, restoration specialists and museum authorities. The international workshop “Documentation, Interpretation, Preservation & Presentation. Innovative Digital Technologies in Ancient Near Eastern Archaeology, Epigraphy and Cultural Heritage Preservation” will be held at the University of Würzburg, Lehrstuhl für Altorientalistik, 24 to 26 March 2015 (see here for a complete programme). The lectures on Tue, 24 March, are open to the public. There is no participation fee, but informal prior registration is required (email Ms Ursula Kraft: l-altorientalistik@uni-wuerzburg.de).

Workshop announcement - “At the wedge’s edge: Handschriftenanalyse von Keilschrifttexten zwischen Informatik und Philologie” (Würzburg, 17-18 October 2013)

In the frame of the joint project “3D-Joins und Schriftmetrologie” an interdisciplinary workshop on cuneiform handwriting will take place at the University of Würzburg, Department of Ancient Cultures, Ancient Near Eastern Studies, on October 17th-18th 2013. The workshop aims at presenting innovative methods for the computerized analysis of cuneiform script in 3D models of tablets, as well as at promoting development and dissemination of consistent frameworks for the description and classification of handwriting and layout in cuneiform tablets. The workshop should also encourage contact and discussion between scholars specialized in the fields of ancient near eastern studies, informatics and 3D technologies. The focus will be on three aspects, i.e. computer analysis of wedges, parameters and terminology in the description of layout and script of cuneiform tablets, and handwriting identification and classification. Presentations and discussion will be held in German and English.
