Cultural Heritage and Computer Graphics: What Are the Issues?
Tuesday, 3:45 - 5:30 pm
In many parts of the world, governments are allocating more financial support for projects that use technology to preserve and communicate cultural heritage. This panel considers several key related questions: What is the role of computer graphics in these projects? Is cultural heritage just an interesting area for using graphics, or does it present unique research challenges? How successful have projects in computer graphics and cultural heritage been? Are the basic tools and techniques developed in graphics adequate for use in cultural heritage, or are we missing opportunities?
This panel brings together the growing population of people who work in the area of computer graphics and cultural heritage. People who have worked on these projects report on their experiences (what has worked and what has not) and explore unsolved problems. The goal is to determine what we need to move past the current "yet-another-project" phase and build a formal body of knowledge in computer graphics and cultural heritage.
