Economics and Techniques for the Conservation of the Architectural and Environment Heritage

August 20, 2014

Master

fromdu 01 October 2014 toau 01 December 2015

Organized by:Organisé par :
University of Nova Gorica and Università Iuav di Venezia, Slovenia and Italy

Location of event:Lieu de l’événement : Venice, Italy

More info:Plus d’infos : URL

Description
University of Nova Gorica and Università Iuav di Venezia jointly established in 2004 the postgraduate program in Economics and Techniques for the Conservation of the Architectural and Environmental Heritage, ETCAEH.
The ETCAEH program investigates the relationship among economics
and techniques for heritage preservation, management and planning, by approaching the complexity of bonds and disciplinary emancipations that emerge from the intertwine of different scientific fields and research perspectives.
The courses of the program, carried out in Venice, in the proximity of a challenging protection and management reality, are given by international experts and professors from different international universities and institutions, merging theoretical achievements and case studies analyses, through an inter – and trans – disciplinary approach.

Description of specializations
The first year of the program includes three educational periods:
> the 1st period (12 ECTS) is compulsory for the two specializations
and focuses on theoretic-methodological issues and the knowledge of
architectural and environmental heritage;
> the 2nd period (28 ECTS) is divided into two specialisations:
- Techniques and Materials in Conservation of the Architectural Heritage
- Management and Economics of Cultural Heritage;
> the 3rd period (20 ECTS) includes thesis elaboration, tutoring and internship (if requested).
The 2nd level Master, which requires total attendance of courses, assigns 60 ECTS; the Doctoral Program assigns 180 ECTS.
Students who successfully accomplish the master may be admitted to the Ph.D., with a consequent recognition of 60 ECTS: in this case the Ph.D. can be obtained in the following 2 years.
The 2nd level Master is jointly issued by Università Iuav di Venezia and University of Nova Gorica.
The Ph.D. is issued by the University of Nova Gorica.

4yr PhD studentship in 3D Mass Digitization/Metadata for Cutural Heritage (UK/Ger)

August 19, 2014

Employment

UCL, London (UK), University of Brighton (UK) and Fraunhofer IGD, Darmstadt (Germany), UK and Germany

Job location:Lieu de travail : London (UK), Brighton (UK), Darmstadt (Germany)

More info:Plus d’infos : URL

Description
PhD studentship opportunity: Mass digitization and metadata enrichment of 3D cultural heritage artefacts by automatic and user-based metadata acquisition.

Applications are invited for a four year fully-funded PhD studentship within EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Science and Engineering in Arts, Heritage and Archaeology (SEAHA – www.seaha-cdt.ac.uk) . The studentship comprises a one-year MRes based at UCL, London, followed by three years PhD study at the University of Brighton, in collaboration with the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research (Darmstadt, Germany) and the Brighton Royal Pavilion and Museums. The project will look at the state-of-the-art ‘conveyor belt’ approach to high fidelity 3D digitization of complex cultural artefacts. Effective management and exploration of collections depends on the acquisition not just of the artefacts themselves, but also of semantic metadata, providing annotation of, and linkage between, acquired assets in the collection. This PhD project aims to explore the potential for the application of mass digitization technology in cultural heritage organisations, and to
develop tools and techniques for the enrichment of collections with metadata by automatic and user-based acquisition.

Open until filled, for Sep 22 start on MRes at UCL.

Description :
It will bring together practitioners and policymakers working to save and promote religious heritage across Europe. The aim will be to develop and share new thinking on sustaining historic religious buildings and recognising value in a rural context. The vast majority of Europe’s religious heritage is in the countryside. It is often hard to access physically as well as intellectually and suffers from underuse and high maintenance and conservation needs. This conference will take a number of different viewpoints with the aim to better understand the values of rural religious heritage, both social and economic, as well as give inspiration to practitioners across Europe by promoting innovative models and ideas.

14th International Conference on Studies, Repairs and Maintenance of Heritage Architecture (STREMAH)

August 14, 2014

Call for papers and/or posters

fromdu 13 July 2015 toau 15 July 2015

Organized by:Organisé par :
Wessex Institute, United Kingdom

Location of event:Lieu de l’événement : Coruña, Spain

More info:Plus d’infos : URL

Description :
This conference aims to provide the necessary scientific knowledge required to formulate regulatory policies, to ensure effective ways of preserving the architectural heritage. Because of that the series has been successful and continues to attract a wide range of high quality contributions since it started in 1989. The meeting addresses a series of topics related to the historical aspects and the reuse of heritage buildings, as well as technical issues on the structural integrity of different types of buildings, such as those constructed with materials as varied as iron and steel, concrete, masonry, wood or earth. Restoration processes require the appropriate characterisation of those materials, the modes of construction and the structural behaviour of the building. This knowledge can be gained through a series of material characterisation techniques, preferably via non-destructive tests. Modern computer simulation can provide accurate results demonstrating the stress state
of the building and possible failure mechanisms affecting its stability. Of particular importance are studies related to their dynamic and earthquake behaviour aiming to provide an assessment of the seismic vulnerability of heritage buildings.
