A PhD student from the Faculty of Creative and Cultural Industries, University of Portsmouth, won the best paper award at the international DPASSH (Digital Preservation in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences) conference held in Dublin on 25 and 26 June.
Creative Technologies student Panagiotis Papageorgiou (Panos) won this award despite there not being the best student paper (there was no student section), but was the best paper overall, so this is a marvellous achievement.
This was a major digital humanities with preservation event, which also included the official launch of the Digital Repository Ireland.
Panos’s paper was entitled “Towards a Conceptual Framework for the Preservation of Archaeological 3D visualisations” and was the only paper in the very full programme to address a novel use of emulation, building on the Preserving Complex Objects (POCOS) and Keeping Emulation Environment Environments (KEEP) projects.
On winning this award Dr. Janet Delve said ” it makes his supervisory team: myself, Professor David Anderson and Dr Vaughan Powell, extremely proud.”
