This volume contains the so-called “project” papers
presented at the VAST2006 International Conference
held in Nicosia, Cyprus, on 30 October – 4 November
2006. The Conference is a joint effort of several
organisations and continues the successful series of
VAST Conferences, which started in Arezzo, Italy, in
November 2000, on the eve of the 21st century.
VAST Conferences focus on the applications of Information
and Communication Technology to Cultural Heritage and Archaeology. In particular, special attention
is paid to computer visualization technologies and
3D modelling, which have an outstanding importance
in the explanation and communication of heritage to a
broad audience of visitors. The variety of themes presented
are of equal importance, such as the documentation
of heritage, the foundation of preservation and
specifi c technologies, such as mobile computing and
3D data capture and processing. During its life, VAST
has shared its goals EPOCH, the European Network
of Excellence on ICT applications to Cultural Heritage
(www.epoch-net.org), and naturally became the venue
for hosting the reports of the Network’s activity. Since
2004, EPOCH has become the primary supporter of
VAST, which also hosts the Eurographics Workshop
on Graphics and Cultural Heritage since 2003. Eurographics
also became the publisher of the “full” papers
proceedings. In the 2006 edition, other organizations
have joined in this effort.
One of these organisations is CIPA, which is one of
the oldest International Scientifi c Committees of ICOMOS
(The International Society for Monuments and
Sites) and was founded in 1968 jointly with ISPRS
(International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote
Sensing) to facilitate the transfer of technology
from measurement sciences into heritage documentation
and recording disciplines. CIPA originally stood
for the Comité International de Photogrammétrie Architecturale (http://cipa.icomos.org). However, this
old and well known name no longer describes the
full scope of CIPA activities, therefore CIPA Heritage
Documentation was established, which is now an
organization that endeavours to transfer technology
from measurement and visualisation sciences to the
disciplines of Cultural Heritage recording, conservation
and documentation. CIPA holds an International
Symposium every two years. Accompanying these
Symposia, frequent specialist workshops are held,
which deal with specifi c topics. The topics chosen for
this year are dedicated to e-documentation and standardization in Cultural Heritage.
Another contributing organization is fairly new but
excitingly important for the joint event. The EuroMed
conference functions as a bridge between European
and Middle East countries and it allows the distribution
of knowledge throughout the entire region. The theme of this conference was dedicated to IT in Cultural
Heritage.
The papers included here deal with project activities,
i.e. applied research, organization, on-fi eld applications
and the lessons learnt from these. Authors have
chosen to report their successes and problems when
trying to match theory with reality, which in our opinion
is not less important than the advances in theoretical
research presented in the “full” papers volume.
“Project” papers have been peer-reviewed and due to
the great number of submissions, only a small part of
them could be accepted and published.
If the number and quality of papers should measure the
success of the joint event, these “project” papers would
substantially contribute in both regards. Moreover, we
consider this conference as a successful event because
it managed to bring together so many participants and
to join the efforts of different organizations, all contributing to a better knowledge of our common heritage.
