Special Issue Information
Advances in 3D modeling technology have found significant applications in the Cultural Heritage (CH) domain. Three-dimensional models for CH can be used for documentation, restoration, conservation, presentation and research purposes. The creation, management and exploitation of 3D models for CH include many multidisciplinary approaches, attracting the attention of many researchers in recent years.
Three-dimensional modeling methodologies for CH must find their way to keep up with novel technologies such as advanced photogrammetry, 3D laser scanning and multi sensor 3D data capturing. There are many challenges in 3D modeling for CH, including detailed documentation of complex 3D geometries; dealing with large-scale data and increased computational requirements; the usage of low-cost techniques for 3D data acquisition; 3D modeling for HBIM; dealing with archaeological uncertainty in virtual 3D reconstructions; automatic 3D modeling; enhancing texture rendering for cultural 3D assets; the effective implementation of 3D models in VR, AR, MR, gaming and storytelling applications and many others.
This Special Issue is dedicated to research facing these challenges, either through the development of new methodologies or the application of 3D CH models to specific cases. We hereby invite and encourage all experts in these fields to submit their contributions.
The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Photogrammetry and laser scanning methodologies for 3D CH modeling;
- Multi-sensor approaches to 3D data capturing for CH;
- Enhanced rendering techniques for 3D CH assets;
- Low-cost technologies for 3D data acquisition of CH assets;
- 3D modeling and machine learning for HBIM;
- Automatic or semi-automatic segmentation and classification for 3D CH models;
- 3D modeling of CH monuments for structural or other FEM analysis;
- 3D modeling of CH monuments for 3D GIS applications;
- Algorithmic approaches for deconstructing and annotating 3D heritage data;
- Dealing with archaeological uncertainty in virtual 3D reconstructions of CH assets;
- Advanced techniques for 3D digital face reconstructions of historical persons;
- 3D modeling for cultural VR, AR, MR applications;
- 3D modeling for CH gaming, storytelling and other computer graphics applications;
- Enhanced Web-based algorithms for 3D CH model presentations;
- Information systems for managing and exploiting large-scale 3D CH data;
- Evaluation of applications;
- Human-computer interaction.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Heritage is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1400 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.
