A joint three-day workshop with the Deutsches Archaeologisches Institut, Abteilung Athen (DFG request: 14,158 euros) on the application of digital technologies to better preserve, study, and make accessible the data from large-scale, long-term archaeological digs.

The American School of Classical Studies at Athens and the Deutsches Archaeologisches Institut, Abteilung Athen, have conducted excavations at the most important sites in Greece, and since the 1990's have been applying digital technologies to archaeological fieldwork. At the same time, concern has been growing about the best ways to manage, disseminate, and preserve digital resources. Both the ASCSA and the DAI have been investigating the long term preservation and interoperability of data over the last few years, with support from their home countries. This proposal requests funding to support a German-American bilateral symposium, to be held in Athens (November 4-7, 2009) at which specialists in digital archaeology can assess the problems which the "big digs" face in the digital age, discuss the challenges of managing digital assets, and explore opportunities for future transatlantic cooperation in developing a robust cyberinfrastructure to support large-scale excavations.
