The Conference on Applications of Unmanned Aircraft in archeology and historic preservation
Symposium in Berlin at May 23/24, 2014
The Excellence Cluster Topoi is organizing together with The EU-funded project ArchaeoLandscapes Europe (ArcLand) a joint conference on UAVs in archaeology and historic preservation – their uses and limitations. The event takes place in a Europe-wide seminar of ArcLand and consists of two parts:
- The first part was a meeting of selected UAV-experts in archaeology. It took place on January 22/23, 2014 at the Institute for Mediterranean Studies of the Foundation for Research and Technology Hellas (IMS – FORTH) in Rethymno/Crete.
- The second part focuses on application examples and will take place on 23rd and 24th May 2014 at the Excellence Cluster Topoi at Frei Universität Berlin. Experts and users of UAV technology will thus have the opportunity to exchange experiences, establish contacts and to obtain knowledge and know- how from first hands.
The outcome of both event parts will result in a printed user manual on the use of “UAVs in archaeology (guidelines and tips)”. We would be delighted if you wish to participate in our Berlin event as an expert, active or future user, or interested colleague or amateur.
Due to the limited space we ask you kindly to register in advance. The UAVs presentation and Open Symposium on Saturday are open to public witout registration. There will be no entrance fee.
The conference language is English.
