Today the digital is ubiquitous across all disciplines connected with the physical environment in which we live. Computational design in architecture and smart cities in urban panning theory are just two examples. In addition to informing design today however, the digital age also informs how we understand the past. State-of-the-art equipment for geophysics, laser scanning, and compositional analysis are now key tools for archeologists. Data mapping is used by historians and digital technologies of all forms allow filmmakers, animators and photographers to record the past and the present in new ways.
As the tools we use to create the future and explore or preserve the past merge and blur, this conferences asks educators and professionals from all disciplines to consider how their work is changing as a result, and how it informs and is informed by the work of others.
