By way of Jack Sasson’s Agade list:
We would like to bring your attention to the International School in Archaeology and Cultural Heritage that we’re organizing in May 2008, in Ascona, Switzerland.
It’s a jointly organization between:
- ETH Zurich
- University of SIENA, Italy
- Research center FBK in Trento, Italy
- University of California Merced
The School will face the problem of the modern technologies in the heritage field, giving participants the opportunity to obtain a detailed overview of the main methods and applications to archaeological and conservation research and practice. Furthermore, our School will give the chance to participants to enter in a very short time the kernel of the scientific discussion on 3D technologies — surveying methods, documentation, data management and data interpretation — in the archaeological research and practice.
The School will be open to ca 60 participants at graduate level, to those carrying out doctoral or specialist research, to established research workers, to members of State Archaeology Services and to professionals specializing in the study and documentation, modeling and conservation of the archaeological heritage.
The deadline for the registration is 31st March, 2008.
Grants provided by UNESCO and ISPRS will be available for students with limited budgets and travel possibilities. The deadline for the grant application is 15st February, 2008.
The grant application and registration form are available online [pdf].
The School is to be held in the congress centre Centro Stefano Franscini, Monte Verità, Ascona, Switzerland. The centre is an ETH-affiliated seminar complex located in a superb botanical park on the historic and cultural Monte Verità area, which will also be the residence of the participants with its integrated hotel and restaurant.
We would be grateful if you could also circulate this announcement to all the possible participants.
Don’t hesitate to contact by email firstname.lastname@example.org the organization if you should have any question.
Thank you and best regards,
