CHANGE final event

Photo: The CHANGE group CHANGE final event It is not always Norwegian summer nights are as hot as they were in Oslo when Society of Imaging and Technology hosted the Archiving conference in June. It was midsummer with long, bright nights when researchers, experts and practitioners joined discussions for cultural heritage. As the Archiving Conference […]

CHANGE School Poland

CHANGE School Poland The CHANGE School has finally kicked off and all Early Stage Researchers are spending the first week in Warsaw, Poland. The first two days. Monday 10. and Tuesday 11th they have had technical workshops on Multimodal & multiscale – acquisition & processing at the Warsaw University of Technology. Today they have continued […]


Host Institution: HES-SO     PhD Enrollment: UBFC Objectives Characterization and investigation of the alteration of oxidized, patinated and varnished metal artifacts with time. Use of imaging techniques: Selection of appropriate ones, testing of acquisition and processing protocols on artificially aged mock-up samples. Application of selected imaging techniques on CH artifacts, followed by interpretation and evaluation. Main […]


Host Institution: CUT Objectives Development of advanced metadata and semantic model for integrating: Para-data of the acquisition technologies and historical and archaeological evidence of CH objects. Argumentation leading to virtual reconstruction and discussing alternatives with the object owners/ stakeholders. Connection of physical and social-historical, constructive, functional, aesthetic and environmental parameters, etc. with 3D/4D documentation of CH […]


Host Institution: UVA Objectives Application of imaging techniques to assess the surface modification of daguerreotypes during their alteration and further restoration using controlled electrolytic processes: Development of a monitoring protocol for tarnishing process using imaging techniques. Definition of the conditions for a controlled electrolytic removal of the tarnishing. Use of the monitoring protocol to assess cleaning […]


Host Institution: SNM          PhD Erollment: University of Neuchatel Objectives Definition of a multi-modal analytical approach to assess different degradation factors and forms. Selection of 3D imaging techniques to document and monitor altered glasses. Development of methodology for characterizing different alteration forms and products using imaging and spectroscopy. Selection and evaluation of new cleaning […]


Host Institution: HES-SO          PhD Erollment: UIO Objectives Development of methodology based on multi-modal analyses for the assessment of the different factors in the formation of metal soaps. Evaluation of analytical protocol on mock-up samples presenting characteristic degradation features. Validation of the proposed multi-modal analyses methodology on real artworks. Main Supervisor: Edith Joseph […]


Host Institution: UIO Objectives Identify paints vulnerable to dirt accumulation and related dry-cleaning methods. Develop representative paint mock-ups for documentation and novel cleaning tests. Perform relevant accelerated aging and testing followed by documentation. Investigate, evaluate and document changes with support of case-studies. Main Supervisor: Tine Frøysaker (UIO) Co-Supervisor(s): Jon Yngve Hardeberg (NTNU) Edith Joseph (HES SO)


Host Institution: UBFC Objectives Investigate the relation between changes in appearance and its underlying geometric mechanisms. Surface roughness reconstruction by combining stereo-photometry and ‘Shape From Focus’. Acquisition at the same scale of surface 3D information and the photometric attributes. Local and global singularities detection on 3D surfaces with impact on photometric attributes and global appearance. Model […]


Host Institution: UBFC Objectives Development of complete framework based on spectral-RTI system: Acquisition, multi-view data alignment and stitching, joint reconstruction of spectral and angular components of reflectance. Investigation of parameters characterizing change in CH object appearance. Investigation of the link between photo metric parameters and visual judgement through psycho-sensorial experiments. Main Supervisor: Alamin Mansouri (UBFC) Co-Supervisor(s): […]
