The GNewArchaelogy – Free Software, Open Data and Open Knowledge in
Archaeology workshop is part of a cultural project promoted and organized by
the students from the University of Ferrara and funded by the Cultural Fund

These two days will be an opportunity for meeting and debating about the use

particularly at archaeological research processes, such as open formats and
archaeological data sharing.

Presentations of research projects and case studies, round-table discussions
and tutorials about specific software are scheduled. The more technical and
specific meeting will be preceded by introductive sessions to the free
software addressed to everyone who is interested in and will include
screening of documentaries, distribution of informative brochures and help
for software installation.

The workshop is an occasion to develop links, connections, contacts,
cooperation between students, professionals and working groups.
