The Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales invites you to attend:
Digital Past 2016: New technologies in heritage, interpretation and outreach.
10 and 11 February 2016
St George’s Hotel, Llandudno
Organised by the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales, Digital Past is an annual two-day conference which showcases innovative digital technologies and techniques for data capture, interpretation and dissemination of the heritage of Wales, the UK and beyond. Bringing together individuals from the commercial, public, academic, third sector and voluntary sectors, the conference aims to promote learning, discussion and debate around a range of digital technologies in current use, or in development, to record and understand the historic environment.
Delegates will be offered a combination of presentations, seminar sessions and hands-on workshops and demonstrations in a friendly and informal atmosphere that aim to promote the exchange of ideas and facilitate networking. Unconference sessions will be provided on the first afternoon, giving the opportunity for delegates not on the formal timetable to give presentations on projects, research, ideas or issues within or outside the strict themes of this year’s event. Exhibition stands provide an opportunity for displays and the demonstration of projects or products, and the chance to talk to heritage organisations, societies, universities, product developers and retailers.
The themes for 2016 will be ‘Digital Survey: An Integrated Approach’ and ‘Digital Heritage Tourism’.
Digital Past 2016 is being held in the Victorian seaside town of Llandudno, the “Queen of Welsh Resorts”. Located on the north Wales coast, Llandudno is easily accessible by road and rail and has good connections to Liverpool and Manchester airports. The conference will be held in the award winning St George’s Hotel, originally built in 1854 and still one of the resort’s finest hotels.
