Events & publications

Events

The ALApp project organises a wide range of private and public events. The major public event will be the project conference in spring 2019. Until then, the project runs seminars and workshops for invited actors, involving both local communities and organisations as well as stakeholders from the Frontiers of the Roman Empire and developing digital tools for heritage interpretation.

In addition to the events, various publications inform about the project and present its outcomes, including project flyers, presentations and papers available online and in-print.

Technical guidance

As part of ALApp's advancement of the app platform, the technological project partners, the Centre for Digital Documentation and Visualisation and EduFilm & Medien, will publish guidelines for the creation of 3D content for use with the platform. This guidance will help organisations involved with archaeological sites at other sections of the Frontiers of the Roman Empire to derive their own apps, based on the ALApp platform, and create content for them.
