Methodologies, Tools and Challenges for 3D Use in Social Sciences and Humanities

From 25th to 27th of February 2019

CNRS-MAP laboratory, Marseille, France.


Are you working in a field of Social Sciences and Humanities (at PhD level and beyond – post-doc, researchers, engineers…) and have used 3D in your research, are planning to use it or want to investigate how 3D can help you?

Following the 1st workshop “Digital 3D Objects in Arts and Humanities: Challenges of Creation, Interoperability and Preservation” held in 2016, the 3D Consortium for Humanities on behalf of CNRS/Huma-Num, together with Inria and CNR, with the support of CNRS-MAP/CNR-ISTI International Joint Lab, are organizing a 2nd workshop about 3D objects within the scope of PARTHENOS Work Package 4 on standardization. Around some selected tools which will be demonstrated, we expect to generate discussion on defining and/or refining standards, and to raise future challenges for the use of 3D in Social Sciences and Humanities.

This workshop aims at promoting 3D best practices in Social Sciences and Humanities and will address the following topics:

  •      Reality-based 3D annotation: an integrated workflow for creating semantically-enriched 3D representations from simple photographs;
  •      3D Visualization: interactive visualization tools and methodologies, the quest between local and web-based tools, data sharing and cooperative visual analysis;
  •      Documentation and Long-Term Archiving: life cycle, best practice organization and archiving tool presentation (aLTAG3D) for 3D data;
  •      Production of documentation(s) and/ or publication(s): record best workflows alongside best practices, with the help of the PARTHENOS Standardization Survival Kit.

Since this workshop requires at least basic knowledge in 3D data and places are limited, we will select attendees. So if you are interested in participating, please send us your CV and a half-page letter of application explaining why you should attend this workshop. To fully benefit from the workshop, the participants are also expected to bring their laptop, data/datasets, to work on them and produce a text on their experience that will be published within PARTHENOS.

Further information:

  •      No registration fee
  •      Registration deadline (CV and letter of application): 15th January 2019
  •      Notification:  18th January 2019

We should be able to give financial support to a few participants (contributing to travel and/or accommodation expenses). If you need some financial support, please add an explicit request in your letter.
