We are at a unique point in history, where cultural heritage professionals must work to care for the physical past while assuring that there will be a digital record for the future.
The challenge we propose is to bring to bear the knowledge and expertise of the VAST network of researchers and professionals that will lead to sustainable practices of stewardship for the long term, for tangible, intangible and virtual heritage alike.
We see this symposium as a dialogue on the present and future of archaeology in the 21st century. The sessions, papers, tutorials and workshops will explore the wealth of opinions and expertise on this vast topic, ranging from nuts-and-bolts practical information on geographical information systems to producing non-linear narratives and multi-vocal visualizations of the past.
We are seeking contributions that advance the state of the art in the technologies available to support sustainability of human heritage.
