Computer modelling and simulating the urban environment in Kyoto and Norwich.
A one-day workshop in Norwich Organised by the Centre for Japanese Studies and the School of Environmental Sciences, University of East Anglia, Norwich, in conjunction with the Norwich Economic and Regeneration Trust (HEART) and the Virtual Kyoto Project, Ritsumeikan University.
Following presentations at the Forum, including a live-link to Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto, there will be a specialist workshop at the School of Environmental Sciences, UEA.
This workshop will bring together researchers on two projects that have developed in parallel to each other, Virtual Kyoto and Virtual Norwich. The workshop is intended to provide an opportunity for each project to be introduced, followed by discussion of potential cooperation and collaboration in the future. The workshop participants include computer scientists involved in modelling ancient and modern urban environments, cultural heritage specialists, urban historians, geographers, anthropologists, archaeologists and art historians. The workshop will also involve discussion of the Norwich bid to host the Congress of the League of Historic Cities in 2013.
