About The Event

The symposium "Advances in applied mathematics and learning approaches for cultural heritage and the arts" will be held in Cagliari (Sardinia, Italy) on April 22-24, 2024. The program of the event will include invited and contributed lectures which will provide both introductory discussion to such applications and cutting edge research results, with the aim of both promoting future collaborations and to stimulate interest in the applied mathematics and AI community.

An interdisciplinary subject

Archaeology and cultural heritage preservation are revealing themselves as prolific areas of application of novel applied mathematical models and methods. Since the introduction of seriation by the egyptologist W.M.F. Petrie in 1899 for dating archaeological excavation sites and the pioneering work of D.G. Kendall in the late sixties, more and more applications have arisen: computer vision techniques for reconstructing and analyzing bas-reliefs and prehistoric rock art, digital analysis of ancient frescoes and illuminated manuscripts as well as machine and deep learning for the interpretation of ancient documents and archaeological findings, solution of inverse problems in near-surface geophysical survey for detecting buried remains, just to mention a few. A growing interest towards the use of approaches based on applied mathematics, computer vision and learning in the arts rapidly developed over the last decades. This is certainly not limited to visual arts. For example, sound synthesis and filtering in electronic and contemporary music are based on Fourier analysis.

Purpose of the Symposium

The aim of the symposium is to foster interaction and collaboration between French and Italian researchers working on applied mathematics and artificial intelligence applications for archaeology and arts. Several research groups in both countries are developing mathematical models, algorithms, and software for problems arising in human sciences, in close interaction with humanities researchers and experts.

Proceedings

Once their abstract will be accepted, participants will have the possibility to submit a full-length paper (at least 10 pages) or a short paper (5-9 pages) for publication in the conference proceedings. All papers will undergo peer-review.

Conference proceedings will be posted for publication in CEUR Workshop Proceedings. The volume will be edited by Alessandro Buccini, Luca Calatroni, Caterina Fenu, Diego Reforgiato Recupero, and Giuseppe Rodriguez. The deadline for submission is June 30, 2024.

After abstract acceptance, contributions can be sent to amalart24@bugs.unica.it. Papers should be formatted according to CEUR rules. A LaTeX template is available at Overleaf, otherwise it can be found in this zip file
