It is our great pleasure to invite you to submit original contributions concerning the topic of 3D Virtual Reconstruction for Archaeological Sites.
3D virtual reconstruction for the documentation, representation, and realistic simulation of ancient contexts is today becoming increasingly important in the study of Cultural Heritage. In particular, in archeology, 3D virtual reconstructions are frequently used to recreate ancient sites and their surrounding environments for different purposes, such as study, documentation, preservation, management, restoration, dissemination, and multimedia applications for education and tourism. 3D virtual reconstructions, if done with rigorous archaeological hypotheses, allow us today to speak of "virtual archaeology" as a discipline that is increasingly spreading in the academic world, also in multidisciplinary projects.
This Special Issue aims to collect high-quality papers dealing with the 3D documentation of archaeological sites, 3D digitization and modeling of Cultural Heritage, 3D virtual reconstruction of archaeological sites and their use through augmented reality (AR)/virtual reality (VR) applications. The main purpose of the Special Issue is to collect contributions about the state-of-the-art on 3D virtual reconstruction in archaeological contexts and on new methodological approaches for virtual archaeology. Examples of case studies in archaeological and museum applications will also be considered.Prof. Dr. Mauro Lo Brutto

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
