More than Meets the Eye Conference

March 16, 2020 - 8:00 am to March 18, 2020 - 5:30 pm

University of Iowa Campus

This international, interdisciplinary conference will host an exchange of research perspectives, expertise and training in the application of enhanced digital imaging technologies. Utilizing “Virtual Unwrapping” with X-ray tomography and multispectral imaging (MSI), we expand the study of otherwise unreadable premodern manuscripts.

The conference welcomes current and future specialists who protect, provide access to, and work intimately with books and manuscripts: book conservators; special collections librarians and archivists; curators; digital humanities scholars; paleographers and codicologists; and computer scientists who are developing cutting-edge technology and software. Participants will deliver a series of papers, take part in workshops, and exchange ideas for developing best practices in this rapidly developing area of inquiry.
