This free event will bring together cultural heritage professionals and staff and students from Computer and Information Sciences at the University of Strathclyde in an insightful exchange of research, information, ideas and knowledge.

Staff and students will share innovative research taking place in digital cultural heritage and explore how their range of insights and expertise can be leveraged, leading to developments in this sector in the future.

Topics covered will include:

  • information behaviour;
  • AI applications for visitor engagement;
  • decarbonisation and heritage; and
  • heritage and wellbeing.

Through an interactive workshop, attendees will also identify current pressing interests across the cultural heritage sector.

Following the event, we invite you to join us for an informal networking lunch.  Through this session, we aim to cultivate a new network around digital cultural heritage and enable the creation of productive and insightful connections across staff, students, and cultural heritage partners.
