The Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology is organising the seminar “When ICT meets Cultural Heritage” to be held on 26 October 2017 at Le Fonds Belval, Esch-sur-Alzette.

At a time in which museums are increasingly embracing the digital, and cities are becoming smarter, Information and Communication Technologies play an important role in disseminating cultural heritage in an entertaining as well as educational manner.

In line with this effort, the European project CrossCult, funded under the H2020 framework and coordinated by LIST, seeks to use technology to help people better understand, reflect on and discuss national and European culture and history.

To learn more about how ICT can support cultural heritage and more specifically about the CrossCult project, LIST has organised a seminar on ICT meeting cultural heritage.

The seminar will commence with a presentation of the CrossCult project, followed by a live experimentation of one of its mobile applications dedicated to city exploration, which will be used to guide participants through the history of Belval.

The event will then welcome two internationally renowned experts as keynote speakers: Professor Tsvi Kuflik from the University of Aifa and Professor Manolis Wallace from the University of Peloponnese, Greece.

Following the speeches, the seminar attendees will have the possibility to visit the lab of the Human Dynamics in Cognitive Environments unit and discover interactive and collaborative new technologies.

More information regarding the schedule and registration for the event will be announced soon.
