New technologies in heritage, interpretation and outreach.
11 and 12 February 2015
Brangwyn Hall, The Guildhall, Swansea
Organised by the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales, Digital Past is an annual two day conference which showcases innovative digital technologies and techniques for data capture, interpretation and dissemination of the heritage of Wales, the UK and beyond. Bringing together individuals from the commercial, public, academic, third sector and voluntary sectors, the conference aims to promote learning, discussion and debate around a range of digital technologies in current use, or in development, to record and understand the historic environment.
Delegates will be offered a combination of presentations, seminar sessions and hands-on workshops and demonstrations in a friendly and informal atmosphere that aims to promote networking and the exchange of ideas. ‘Unconference sessions’ will be provided on the first afternoon, giving the opportunity for delegates not on the formal timetable to give presentions on projects, research, ideas or issues within or outside the strict themes of this year’s event. Exhibition and Poster stands will also give the opportunity for display and demonstration of projects or products, and the chance to talk to heritage organisations, societies, universities, product developers and retailers.
Digital Past 2015 is being held in the waterfront city of Swansea. The conference will be held in the spectacular venue of the Grade I listed Guildhall complex, incorporating Brangwyn Hall, George Hall and the Lord Mayor’s Reception Room.
The themes for this year are ‘Visual Heritage’ and ‘Digital Public & Community Archaeology’.
