International School in Archaeology and Cultural Heritage

ETH Zurich, the University of Siena, Italy, the FBK Research Centre,Trento, Italy and the University of California Merced are organising an International School in Archaeology and Cultural Heritage to take place in May 2008, in Ascona, Switzerland.

The School will face the problem of modern technologies in the heritage field, giving participants the opportunity to obtain a detailed overview of the main methods and applications to archaeological and conservation research and practice.

Furthermore, our School will give the chance to participants to enter in a very short time the kernel of the scientific discussion on 3D technologies – surveying methods, documentation, data management and data interpretation – in the archaeological research and practice.

The School is open to approximately 60 participants at graduate level, to those carrying out doctoral or specialist research, to established research workers, to members of State Archaeology Services and to professionals specialising in the study and documentation, modeling and conservation of the archaeological heritage.

Grant application and registration forms are available online

The deadline for any grant applications is 15th February, 2008.

Grants are provided by UNESCO and ISPRS will be available for students with limited budgets and travel possibilities.

The deadline for registration is 31st March, 2008.

The School is to be held in the congress centre Centro Stefano Franscini, Monte Verità, Ascona, Switzerland. The centre is an ETH-affiliated seminar complex located in a superb botanical park in the historic and cultural Monte Verità area, which also contains accommodation for participants in the integrated hotel and restaurant.

Any questions can be sent to . Download further details for the Ascona school.
