The great possibilities offered by digital cartography have made it an essential tool for investigating and disseminating knowledge of the Roman world. Joining efforts exponentially increases the potential of results from research and it is increasingly evident that important achievements require international networks of researchers with common goals and agreements regarding the methodology to be applied to their work.
Given this situation, it is of vital importance for the studies of settlement, communication networks and economic elements, toponymy and archaeological topography, as well as studies of the territory and landscape, that form the basis of many of these cartographic processes, should use commonly agreed methodologies to allow, collectively, interaction and the construction of maps of the Roman world, exploring the huge potential offered by Linked Open Data. A network needs to be set up between the different research groups so they can reach agreements regarding the mapping of the elements under study and, at this point, evaluate the research being carried out and provide a forum for discussion.
For these reasons, the International TIR-FOR Commission is organising the FIRST TIR-FOR SYMPOSIUM, an event to encourage reflection and discussion regarding the inextricable interaction between research into settlement, territory and archaeological topography and digital cartography.
Proposals can be submitted until April 30th 2020 on the registration page
The languages of the Symposium are Catalan, Spanish, English, French and Italian.
The Organising Committee will consider the relevance of the proposals to the Symposium's topics and will reply by 30th May 2020. The final programme will be drawn up based on the proposals accepted.
