Webinar on 3D digital Documentation of the Past: Paradata, Metadata and Data in 3D Cultural Heritage

We are happy to announce the webinar Paradata, Metadata and Data in the domain of 3D digital Documentation in Cultural Heritage, planned for Monday, April 8th, 2024.

The webinar is organised by The UNESCO Chair on Digital Cultural Heritage, in cooperation with the Earth Observation Research lab (EOCult), the  Mechanical Engineering Design & Additive Manufacturing Laboratory at the CY University of Technology, the EU CLARIAH-CY research infrastructure, the ARTEST and CREAMS projects, the CY-Eureka3D competence center on Digital Heritage and the EU Project Digital Europe EUreka3D.

This workshop will bring together professionals from the spectrum of Digital Cultural Heritage practice to share their experiences of using and working with paradata seeking to lay down a common understanding of paradata as a first step towards a community-built set of standards and expectations for its application to 3D documentation and the creation of knowledge.

Call for contributions

If you have worked with paradata and metadata within any 3D Digital Cultural Heritage context, we cordially invite you to submit an abstract for presentation at the workshop. Topics under consideration are, but not limited to:

  • Case studies of Paradata link to Metadata implementation

  • Economic value and impact of paradata

  • How Paradata can help to create high quality of 2D/3D data, as well as with data preservation

  • Paradata accessibility and discovery methods

  • Paradata as a tool for transparency in scholarly research

  • Paradata for BIM, HBIM, HHBIM in CH

  • Paradata representation in 2D and 3D data acquisitions and visualisations

  • Standards, Paradata, Metadata, Ontologies and Semantic Processing in CH

  • Structured paradata approaches

  • The intersection between Paradata, Metadata and Data

  • Tools, practices or solutions supporting paradata recording.


Abstracts should be no larger than one side of A4 and can be submitted via email to no later than the 29th March 2024.


Authors of selected abstracts will be invited to submit full papers to a new open-access publication under the series of Lecture Notes in Computer Science, Springer-Nature: “3D Research Challenges in Cultural Heritage - Volume V: Paradata, Metadata and Data in Digitisation".


The registration to the online event, as well as the Gold Open Access book publication are free of charge and sponsored by the UNESCO Chair on Digital Cultural Heritage & the CY-EUreka3D Competence Center at the Cyprus University of Technology in Limassol.
