Invitation to Methodological workshop: 'Life cycle of a digital object.
Hands-on experience from laser scanning to visualization and 3D printing.'
- 3/4 September 2009, UCL

Following UCL’s very successful conference on 3D Colour Laser Scanning in
March 2008 we are planning a 2-day workshop exploring the lifecyle of a
digital object. The workshop is funded by JISC through the Arts and
Humanities e-Science Support Centre (AHeSSC).

Who is invited?
The workshop is aimed at anyone interested in user engagement with 3D
objects. It will help researchers and professionals better understand how
to use 3D objects and related digital data records. It will be
particularly relevant for conservators, curators and educators wanting to
use 3D or 2D records of museum artefacts and for Arts and Humanities
researchers interested in this field.

What will be covered?
3 September. The first day will offer opportunities for small group guided
tours of relevant UCL facilities. Delegates will have the opportunity to
discuss practical applications of the technologies with existing users:
Arius3D colour laser scanner
CAVE Virtual Environment
UCL Interaction Centre (UCLIC): a centre of excellence in human-computer
interaction
Slade School of Fine Art: use of a hand held scanner in art classes
Digital Petrie Exhibition (in the making)
Digital Manufacturing Center, Bartlett School of Architecture
The day concludes with a wine reception.

4 September The second day will feature talks and presentations on a range
of topics, including 3D colour laser scanning and standards, 3D objects in
virtual environments, 3D colour printing, the life cycle of an object and
digital repatriation.
