Acquiring and post-processing 3D data in Anthropology and Archaeology

when 10 June 2019 - 19 June 2019
language English
duration 2 weeks

The Summer School is designed to comply with the increasing demand for researchers with different and cross-disciplinary backgrounds who are able to manage virtual environments and to exploit the analytical potential of 3D data in a variety of scientific endeavours.
The School is articulated in two classes, each of which will address specific subjects and will provide access to complementary skills. The classes can be attended independently or in sequence, and both classes will involve lectures and practical sessions conducted and supervised by experts in the field.

Course leader

Prof. Stefano Benazzi, Director of the Laboratory of Physical Anthropology and ancient DNA
Department of Cultural Heritage - University of Bologna

Target group

The courses are suitable for undergraduate/graduate students, PhD students, post-doctoral researchers, and professionals in the field of anthropology, archaeology, medicine and dentistry who are interested in developing fundamental skills in 3D data acquisition and post processing.
The summer school is open up to 30 students. However a minimum of 10 participants is required to start the specific module.

Course aim

Participants will acquire specialised notions on the different kinds of technology employed in 3D data acquisition (e.g., surface scans, X-ray computed tomography – CT), and on a variety of methods for post processing surface data (such as segmenting/visualizing image data from (micro)-CT sources) to create and analyse 3D digital models.
