21st c. Data, 21st c. Publications. 3D Model Publication and building the Peer Reviewer Community
The preservation and dissemination of 3D archaeological data, and theadaptation of peer review toaccommodate publications based on complex digital data and models, arekey emergent issues in 21st-c.archaeology and related fields. A growing cadre of archaeologicalprojects are producing rich, born-digital archives incorporating datafrom technologies like 3D modeling, laserscanning, image based modeling,and photogrammetric survey, which they are preparing for publication.The Gabii Project (University of Michigan) is embarking on a new digitalheritage effort, supported by the NEH, to develop a peer review processand support the building of a community of reviewers for complex 3D,digital content.
Participants in this workshop will have the opportunity to interact withsample 3D digital content of the kind that could potentially appear inGabii Project publications, alongside relevant narrative text andarchaeological arguments. They will be asked to work in groups tocritique the digital content in terms of interface, information content,and integration with the narrative and argument.
This critique exercise will act as a springboard for open discussion, inwhich participants will define key issues in developing a process forthe peer reviewed publication of the kinds of digital 3D models andcomplex, interactive datasets archaeological projects are now producing.Taking advantage of the wide range of participants brought together bythe Digital Heritage conference, this workshop will act as a startingpoint, launching the effort to build a community of peer reviewers withthe necessary skills and shared standards to evaluate these kinds ofpublications. During the workshop, participants will also have theopportunity to register interest for continuing participation in theGabii Goes Digital project, and identify opportunities for futuremeetings, training sessions, and knowledge transfer.

Digital Applications in Archaeology and Cultural Heritage
We plan to discuss a new, innovative publication peer reviewing and publishing 3D models of objects in archaeology and cultural heritage as well as virtual environments. The Editor in Chief, Bernie Frischer, will explain his vision for the journal and will be able to answer queries from potential authors. The journal aims both to preserve digital cultural heritage models and to provide access to them for the scholarly community to facilitate the academic debate, offering scholars the opportunity of publishing their models online with full interactivity so that users can explore them at will. DAACH provides full peer-review for all 3D models, not just the text, 2D renderings or video fly-throughs, and requires all models to be accompanied by metadata, documentation, and a related article, explaining the history of the subject and its state of preservation, as well as an account of the modeling project itself. The journal focuses on scholarship that either promotes the application of 3D technologies to the fields of archaeology, art and architectural history, and palaeoanthropology or uses 3D technology to make a significant contribution to the study of built structures, works of art or palaeoanthropological remains. Digital Applications in Archaeology and Cultural Heritage will also consider papers dealing with processing of digital data acquired by geophysical prospection in archaeological sites (eg applications of 3D or 2D mapping of buried monuments), digital signals from luminescence measurements, multispectral imaging techniques and processing of atomic force microscopic data applied to archaeomaterials. The provision of a 3D model is not compulsory for an article to be published in this journal.

I am a professor of Informatics in the School of Informatics at Indiana University. I just arrived here in lovely Bloomington, IN (a Mecca for lovers of classical music and opera because of the great music school) and have the mission of starting an undergraduate and graduate program in Virtual Heritage.
