  • Happy hour on the patio, inlcuding a chocolate tasting of samples from local and international chocolatiers

  • Additionally, on the afternoon on the last day, we participated in an optional four hour workshop on photogrammetry and other computational photography methods, offered by our friend Carla Schroer of Cultural Heritage Imaging. There is growing interest in our community in 3D capture and related technologies, and this was an opportunity to advance our understanding and skills in this area.

Agenda 2015

Lightning talks

All participants are invited to give a lightning talk.  A lightning talk is a five to seven minute presentation on a compelling topic related to cultural heritage imaging, your work, or that of your organization. Slides and demos are encouraged, but a free-form talk is also great.  The goal is to introduce yourself, stimulate thought and generate ideas for meeting sessions. 


Topic planning

On the first day of the event we will collaboratively decide on the agenda for our three days together.  But lets take some time in the weeks leading up to the meeting to suggest ideas and register your interest.  We will provide a Google doc to capture your ideas.  This will help expedite the unconference agenda planning.
