  • Lecture 6: Usability of 3D documentation methods for the creation of H-BIM models
  • Lecture 7: Introduction to semantic web standards and their application on INCEPTION
  • Lecture 8: INCEPTION H-BIM Ontology
  • Lecture 9: INCEPTION platform architecture and IT technical solutions
  • Lecture 10: Innovative Business plans for H-BIM application related to alternative financing opportunities for Cultural Heritage
  • Lecture 11: Presentation of the Villa Klonaridi demo case
  • Lecture 12: Non-destructive techniques prospection in diagnosis and strategic planning
  • Lecture 13: 3D BIM Modelling and AR/VR App for the Hydra Museum (HAMH) Demonstration Case
  • Lecture 14: Creation of the point clouds & basic 3D model using AVR for the demo cases: Technical Museum Nikola Tesla in Zagreb and Cultural Heritage Municipality of Unešić
  • Lecture 15: Prototype CH Asset Management and Condition Assessment tool
  • Lecture 16: Impact Investing and Cultural Heritage.
 
The INCEPTION courses are addressed to:

  • European students different Disciplines in the field of Cultural Heritage survey, documentation and representation (Architecture, Engineer, Survey Engineering, Digital Humanities, and universities
  • Professionals of all Disciplines involved in Cultural Heritage Protection and Historic buildings conservation;
  • Specialized employees of the Ministry of Culture and the Municipality of Athens (Archaeologists, Conservators, Restorers, Engineers and others).

The purpose is to disseminate the INCEPTION concepts, methodologies and techniques as well as to demonstrate their implementation on use cases and real demonstration cases.
 
During the two days of lectures are also included two important visit to the following local example of cultural heritage:
  • Villa Klonaridi (neoclassical building and demo case of the INCEPTION project)
  • Hephaestus Temple – Thission (classical period of ancient Greece).
 
At the end of the INCEPTION courses will start the 6th Consortium meeting of the project hosted by NTUA. The meeting will take place at the General Assembly Hall at the Technical Chamber of Greece.
Please, if you require further information on the event you can write to the following emails: piamnl@unife.it or mttfrc@unife.it.
 
The lectures are available also by streaming directly from your computer using the INCEPTION educational platform: inception.unife.it.

INCEPTION is co-organizer of the ITN-DCH final conference

23/05/2017

​​The INCEPTION project will join the Digital Heritage Conference 2017 that will be held in Olimje, Slovenia, on 23rd-25th May 2017.

ITN-DCH final conference - Initial Training Network for Digital Cultural Heritage: Projecting our Past to the Future - is an international event for the professionals of multiple disciplines and scholars working in the Digital Cultural Heritage domain. The aim of the conference is to bring together experts, stakeholders and researchers from the cultural domain and, addressing the current challenges, start a dialogue that will lay the foundation for the creation of a multidisciplinary community of practice.
 
The ITN-DCH is the first and one of the largest Marie Curie fellowship projects in the area of the e-documentation / e-preservation and CH protection funded by the European Union under the FP7 PEOPLE research framework. The Project started on the 1st of October 2013 and its consortium comprising of 14 full partners and 10 associate members covering the entire spectrum of European CH actors, ranging from academia, research institutions, industry, museums, archives and libraries.
 
During the Digital Heritage Conference events INCEPTION will present some of the main outcomes achieved during the first two years of project in the field of 3D Data Acquisition, Processing and Modelling and Metadata, Semantics and Ontologies.​​

Europe Day 2017 | INCEPTION stand at the EU Science around the clock!

06/05/2017

“Without you realising, science is all around you. From the moment you get up in the morning until you go to bed, European research is part of your everyday life. The EU runs the biggest research and innovation programme in the world: Horizon 2020”.
 
INCEPTION participated in the stand EU Science around the clock!, dedicated in particular to the "Research and Innovation" projects, during the Open Day of the European Institutions on 6 May 2017. Approximately 12,000 visitors came to the Open Day, and the exhibition of some of the main outcomes from INCEPTION contributed to show how important research and innovation are for the European economy and quality of life.
Through a playful and interactive walk by 30 stands, this 25th edition of the Open Day in the Berlaymont presented the main policies of the EU, highlighting the 60th anniversary of the Rome Treaties, the 5 scenario's on the future of Europe, the European Solidarity Corps and the 30th anniversary of the Erasmus+.
 
INCEPTION presented some of the preliminary outcomes on Virtual Reality of heritage as tools for the practical application of multi-informative 3D models.
The application of different digital acquisition systems for the development of a three-dimensional modelling dedicated to making digital models used by different categories of users belonging to different disciplines is one of the main objectives of the project in terms of "inclusive cultural heritage".
 
The Virtual Tours presented to ''Open Doors Day" by means of Headsets allowed visitors to explore one of the INCEPTION Demonstration Cases, the Istituto degli Innocenti in Florence by Brunelleschi, and other historical environments. Another Virtual Tour showed the building of the Department of Architecture of the University of Ferrara, a fifteenth-century building in the historic centre of Ferrara. 
 
Other three-dimensional models such as the Laurentian Library by Michelangelo in Florence and the archaeological site of Geguti Palace near Kutaisi, Georgia, were presented as a result of the activity of advanced 3D integrated survey.

INCEPTION, now in its second year of development, will present on this occasion some of the preliminary outcomes on Virtual Reality of heritage as tools for the practical application of multi-informative 3D models.
The application of different digital acquisition systems for the development of a three-dimensional modeling dedicated to making digital models used by different categories of users belonging to different disciplines is indeed one of the main objectives of the project in terms of "inclusive cultural heritage".
 
The Virtual Tours that will be presented to ''Open Doors Day" will allow visitors to explore one of the INCEPTION Demonstration Cases, the Istituto degli Innocenti in Florence by Brunelleschi and other historical environments. Other three-dimensional models such as the Laurentian Library by Michelangelo in Florence, the Cathedral of Pisa, the Citadel of Gozo in Malta, the Forum of Pompeii, Santa Maria Novella in Florence, San Sebastiano in Mantua of Leon Battista Alberti will be presented as a result of the activity of advanced 3D integrated survey.
