Cyprus and the Eastern Mediterranean region are hosts to a unique Cultural Heritage (CH) wealth, whose valorization and contribution to sustainable development calls for concentrated efforts with regards to CH documentation, scientific study, monitoring, protection, and promotion. Most traditional practices addressing the aforementioned requirement...
Conference Paper
In this paper, we present some of the novel results of the Marie Curie Initial Training Network for Digital Cultural Heritage (ITN-DCH) project, describing briefly the work done focusing on the project's first case study: the Panagia Phorviotisa of Asinou, an UNESCO World Heritage Listed (WHL) monument in Cyprus. The paper introduces some challenge...

The majority of cultural assets and archaeological sites are located in open sunlit regions that due to the large space occupied, are often left unprotected from natural hazards such as wildfires. Towards the end of protecting Heritage, Data Mining methods can be used to extract information from a dataset and transform it into an understandable str...
Chapter
From the ancient library of Alexandria 2300 years ago, the objectives of the collection of information has a common fundamental base: to gather, preserve, and promote knowledge, thus helping in the intellectual and cognitive evolution of humanity. Today, the information revolution has given the ability to scientists, educators, researchers, and ind...

This paper presents alternative methodologies for disseminating information that derives from a holistic documentation of a monument with the use of interactive technologies. These technologies are incorporated within an interactive book, while the book’s context is about the unique monument Panagia of Asinou church in Nicosia (Cyprus). The prototy...

This case study is about the cultural promotion and exploitation of the ancient quarries of Paros island in Greece, in a multilayered project which uses modern technologies attempting to “return” all the marble works that have been created from 7th to 5th century BC to their place of origin. Taking total advantage of the emerging technological affo...
Conference Paper
Nowadays, there is a rising demand of reusing the constantly enriched information from heritage digitalization in different ways. One of the objectives of the EU Europeana Space project is the development of a holistic approach for educating people (grown-ups and kids) on Monuments that are listed at UNESCO world heritage list, in Cyprus. The propo...
Conference Paper
The expansion of the term “monument” to include the surrounding area of the tangible cultural asset, its natural environment as well as the intangible data relating to its existence and use has gradually resulted the formation of the term “cultural landscapes”. “Monument” has evolved into “monumental place” and a “place with its own soul” and nowad...

This paper proposes a new method that combines input-output fuzzy clustering and optimal fuzzy clustering for the efficient design of radial basis function neural networks. We first apply the fuzzy c-means in the product (i.e. input-output) space to pre-process the available data. The resulting clusters are projected on the input space. The corresp...

Project
SaRoCy responds to the cutting-edge, frontier research requirement of the “Excellence Hubs” Programme by seeking to create new knowledge on a topic that has recently attracted global archaeological attention within the broader context of island and coastal archaeology. Project also aspires to offer novel insights based on physical/environmental modelling and computer simulation into the possible prehistoric maritime pathways between Cyprus and other Eastern Mediterranean coastal regions at the boundary between Terminal Pleistocene – early Holocene (Epipaleolithic / early Neolithic), a critical period for understanding the origins of the early visitors in Cyprus in connection with the Neolithic transition. The SaRoCy project proposal was ranked 2nd (score 14.52 / 15) out of a total of 65 proposals submitted to the “Social and Humanities” scientific area of the specific call. The project will run for 24 months with an overall budget of €150k, mainly allocated to young researchers participating in the project. Website: http://sarocy.cut.ac.cy/ This project has received funding from the “Excellence Hubs” Programme within the “RESTART 2016-2020” funding framework for Research, Technological Development and Innovation (RTDI) administered by Cyprus’s Research & Innovation Foundation under Grant Agreement No EXCELLENCE/0918/0143.
