Last year we launched a postgrad course on conceptual modelling for cultural heritage at Incipit. It was a great success, so we decided to run it again this year with extended contents. Actually, we are offering an introductory module plus an advanced one, which can be done as separate courses or as a whole.
Like last year, we will be using ConML as a foundation and, also like last year, Charlotte Hug will be helping us a lot!
More information, here (in Spanish).
Next May we will be running the first edition of the short course Conceptual Modelling for Cultural Heritage. This is a postgraduate course organised by us at LaPa – CSIC and offered as part of the 2011 higher education programme of the CSIC.

I’ll be giving an invited talk at the Heritage and New Technologies mini-conference organised by the European Virtual Engineering Technology Centre (EUVE) in Vitoria, Spain, next Wednesday 12th November. My talk is titled “Information Technologies and Cultural Heritage: Learned Lessons”, and I’ll be describing the whys and hows of a few technologies that I and my team tried to apply to archaeology and heritage management in the past with various success rates; some were promising but didn’t work, and some did work albeit they lacked a solid foundation.
If you happen to be nearby Vitoria on the 12th, contact EUVE and drop by!
