Innovative scientific methodologies and challenging projects marking future trends in the protection of cultural
heritage have initiated through a holistic approach, by merging competence from the scientific fields of
architecture, civil engineering, surveying engineering, materials science and engineering, information technology,
and archaeology, a universal conversation among scholars, heritage professionals on restoration and
conservation, stakeholders, industry representatives, and policy makers. The combined utilization of digital
documentation technologies with innovative analytical and non-destructive techniques; numerical, computational;
and 3D techniques; and archaeometric and archaeogene methods supports the development of a transdisciplinary
multispectral modeling methodology towards the sustainable preservation of cultural heritage.
Innovation is enhancing and revealing a critical dimension of the preservation of cultural heritage along with
social participation and communication.
