Over the last 2 decades we have seen a shift from the physical confines of the ‘houses of knowledge’ – traditional museum, cultural galleries, knowledge institutes – to more online, mobile, accessible interactive displays of cultural heritage knowledge. From books, physical displays and site-specific places of cultural heritage significance, many more can now access these repositories remotely. As touring 3D installations, interactive online applications, images, text, audio and video, access to cultural heritage knowledge has never been so accessible. What does this mean to those who’s heritage is on display? What protocols are needed to protect the integrity of the knowledge included? And, what new knowledge do we gain through these technological interventions and expositions of cultural heritage? These are only some of the many questions raised in this emerging field of Cultural Heritage Knowledge Visualisation.
The symposium seeks original projects that deal with, but are not limited to, the following topics:
• Heritage Visualisation
• Culture Visualisation
• Visualising Society Networks
• Visualising Cultural Heritage Knowledge Practices
• Developing Protocols for Cultural Heritage Knowledge Visualisation
• Cultural Heritage Knowledge Semantics
• Narrative Visualisation
• Cultural Heritage Knowledge Ethics
