Computational imaging plays an important role in the digital documentation of cultural heritage. From small objects to large landscapes, computational imaging is now being used not only as a way to capture and record these items, but techniques such as Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI) and Photogrammetry are playing a more significant role in their analytical understanding.
In the past few years steps have been made in advancing computational imaging but little of this has been publicised for a wider audience. This session aims to bridge this gap by inviting papers on the new developments that have been made. This will be a very broad subject but it is hoped that the papers will include topics such as new software and hardware solutions; case studies; the combination of different types of computational imaging techniques; new developments in RTI and Photogrammetry that move away from standard capture and processing; and any other topic related specifically to imaging.
The session is open to all and we welcome papers on a multitude of different imaging subjects including but not limited to digital photography, multispectral imaging, ultrasound, volumetric based imagery, image processing, feature extraction and standards for sharing and archiving the results. It is hoped that this session will create new areas of research and collaborations that will enable further development that can advance the use of these techniques within archaeology and cultural heritage.
We would also like to invite people to demonstrate their software and hardware solutions which participants can look at during the conference breaks, or if available time is given, during the extended session.
