Subject of course

Symposium "Virtual Models and Scientific Value"

18 and 19 May 2020, main ceremonial hall, TU Wien

In accordance with today's omnipresent digitization strategies, which do not stop at art and architecture, cultural sciences and humanities, teaching and research is becoming increasingly accustomed to the use of digital tools. The task at hand for these disciplines is now to responsibly contribute in shaping the evolvement of the new technologies - in theory, methodology and application. Discussion is especially needed to determine where the new technical capabilities can meet the requirements of researchers also in these fields for scientific analysis. 

The aim of the conference is to encourage creative thinking, to create a platform for exchange and cooperation in order to develop future projects and initiatives on these very sensitive topics - in the hope of promoting an intense exchange between architecture, art, archaeology and technology!
