creatiVE 2016 – Summer School on Virtual Environments. 5th Virtual Heritage Edition

Why search our heritage roots on the Internet when we may discover them in an entertaining way, by the means of third milenium technologies, and integrate them in our personal interpretation. The link with the roots of humanity may become stronger by socially interacting to interpret them. Virtual and augmented reality represents the technology that permits us to bring to life these lost historical periods of time, while protecting the real artifacts for generations to come. The 5-th Edition of creatiVE Summer School in Virtual Environments is organised at Ovidius University of Constanta by CeRVA Lab of the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Sciencein a partnership with National History and Archaeology Museum of Constanta and Transilvania University from Brasov, the latest being supported by European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 692103, project eHERITAGE (Expanding the Research and Innovation Capacity in Cultural Heritage Virtual Reality Applications). creatiVE2016 focuses on applying mixed reality in the reconstruction of archaeological artifacts discovered in Dobrogea enhanced with animated elements. The project’s aim is to specialize students in 3D modeling and historical reconstructions, while having the purpose of adding soft skills such as team work.
