The DACORD functional system, developed within the scope of collaboration between the University of Burgundy (Dijon) and Masaryk University (Brno), orients and draws archaeological pottery, based on 3D model geometry, using modern mathematical, graphical, optimization methods. The orientation workflow combines existing approaches (normal vectors, horizontal / vertical sections, etc.) with new methods, to segment fragments (external and internal surfaces), and to erase parts that provide no information about the rotational axis (fractures, plastic decoration, etc.). Archaeological illustrations adapted to most norms and standards of pottery drawings can then be produced from these correctly oriented models. All pottery orientation and drawing methods are implemented in DACORD software, developed in R.
Invitation to a Doctoral Meeting of L’EEPB Bibracte (27 and 28 April 2016)
The doctoral meeting organized by the European School of Protohistory in Bibracte (EEPB) seeks to bring together European PhD and postdoctoral students working on the Iron Age. This project continues the work of the 1st Doctoral Meeting, organized in April 2015 in Bibracte (Burgundy, France). The principal aim of this meeting is to foster discussions on interdisciplinary topics, in various geographical and cultural contexts.
All PhD and postdoctoral students (who have graduated within the last three years) are invited to present both posters AND oral presentations (which may even have been already presented at another seminar).
