Or­gan­ised by the Göttin­gen Cen­tre for Dig­i­tal Hu­man­i­ties (GCDH)

3D vi­su­al­i­sa­tion tech­nolo­gies en­able and ad­vance the preser­va­tion of and re­search on all kinds of cul­tural her­itage. Mod­el­ing, vi­su­al­is­ing and an­i­mat­ing cul­tur­ally im­por­tant ob­jects or sites via 3D tech­nolo­gies allow re­searchers a more de­tailed and high-res­o­lu­tion view on their re­search ma­te­r­ial.

Our spring school will bring to­gether 20 in­ter­na­tional stu­dents who are in­ter­ested in learn­ing how to model 3D ob­jects, how to man­age 3D data, and how to cre­ate vir­tual worlds in 3D. You will be ac­quainted with the mod­el­ing of 3D ob­jects using Blender, the 3D re­con­struc­tion with Vi­su­alSFM and Mesh­Lab, and the cre­ation of 3D vir­tual worlds using Unity 3D. In the morn­ing ses­sions you will be taught the­ory and es­sen­tial knowl­edge about pho­togram­me­try, mesh­ing, etc. In the af­ter­noon, you will deepen and broaden this knowl­edge in in­struc­tor-led labs where you will apply the meth­ods you have been ac­quainted with.

The work­shops will be led by Jo­hanna Pirker and Phil Gosch who al­ready ran the 3D strand of the DARIAH Sum­mer School 2014.

Participation

The reg­is­tra­tion fee for ac­cepted ap­pli­cants is 100 €. We pro­vide free ac­com­mo­da­tion (sin­gle rooms) in near-by ho­tels, in­clud­ing break­fast, as well as lunch in the re­fec­tory. We will not cover travel costs. Par­tic­i­pants are re­spon­si­ble for se­cur­ing and pay­ing for visas if nec­es­sary.

Ap­pli­ca­tion

We are invit­ing up to 20 in­ter­na­tional par­tic­i­pants (MA and PhD stu­dents). Please send a cov­er­ing let­ter in­di­cat­ing your mo­ti­va­tion to par­tic­i­pate in the Spring School (1 page max.) and a short Cur­ricu­lum Vitae (1 page max.) prefer­ably as one PDF file to Ele Kraft (gkraft@​gcdh.​de). The dead­line for ap­pli­ca­tions is Sun­day, 25 Jan­u­ary 2015. You will be no­ti­fied on your ap­pli­ca­tion sta­tus until Fri­day, 30 Jan­u­ary 2015.
