Call For Papers

Urban history, drawing on architectural heritage and cultural history, is one of the key areas in digital humanities. Regarding to that research interest, digital libraries play an important role, especially for visual media like photographs, paintings, or drawings, but also for physical and virtual models. Due to the wide field of possible research, different approaches, methods and technologies have emerged – and are still emerging.

The purpose of the workshop is to concentrate on the area of tension between the fields of culture, technologies and education. We aim to discuss crucial challenges for further research and encourage debate. We would like to invite contributions on theoretical and methodological issues, application scenarios and projects, as well as novel approaches and tools. This includes the following five areas:

1. Research on architectural and urban cultural heritage
- relevant data for architectural and urban history in digital archives and image repositories
- the effects of the use of digital archives and image repositories on scientific work
- concepts and projects for networking and cooperation
- possible scientific questions regarding objects, spaces, content or historical events

2. Technical access
- requirements for storing and documenting written sources, images and related meta data
- possibilities for storing digital sources derived from spatial databases
- 3D databases as a tool to support urban historical research
- Remote sensing approaches to support contextualization and intuitive access to data
- Linked and semantic data related to urban historical research
- difficulties encountered in computational modeling, approaches and possible solutions
- the influence of knowledge of HCI on the design of historic models

3. Systematization
- working techniques and new methods arising from digital archives and image repositories
- cooperation between (art) historians and the technical disciplines
- methodologies for digitally supported research and education in urban history
- classifications supporting scientific work

4. Education in urban history
- educational scenarios for teaching urban history supported by digital methods
- approaches to employing large scale repositories for educational purposes in cultural history

5. Organizational perspectives
- research institutions, the institutionalization of research and education in urban history supported by digital libraries
- implications for establishing an academic culture
- legal frameworks for the use of sources and models

We expect to receive original contributions in one of two formats:
a) FULL PAPER presenting research outcomes (20 pages)
b) PROJECT PAPER presenting research approaches, ongoing research or theoretical perspectives (15 pages)
