- Process/power/utilities inspection: pipeline, cell tower, transmission line, asset management, planning
- Infrastructure design, construction and inspection: roads, bridges, tunnels, facilities
- Construction: progress on a jobsite, innovative uses of UAV/UAS for precision measurement
- Mining applications: volumetric measurement, stockpile management, risk mitigation
- Asset management case studies: using UAV/UAS for documentation and management of physical assets
- Environmental Monitoring: case studies of UAV/UAS for environmental projects
- Surveying & Mapping: case studies of UAV/UAS for survey and mapping projects
- Precision Agriculture applications: case studies of UAV/UAS for agriculture, farming
- Law enforcement, Security, Emergency Response: case studies of UAV/UAS integration for first responders, to address security concerns
- Regulatory landscape, regulatory initiatives, current regulatory structure, updates by country on existing and future regulations, EU perspective, harmonization of standards
- Privacy issues
- Safety, legal, liability and insurance considerations: opportunities to field test within legal framework, risk mitigation, safety and training
- Privacy issues
- Planning for UAV/UAS integration with existing workflows
- Data fusion: Integrating UAV/UAS with other precision measurement systems and data capture methods
- University/Industry Collaboration: developments and opportunities, public-private partnerships, university research.
Please note: Presentations must be original and not a repeat of a presentation given at another conference. Commercial presentations will not be considered for the main program.

In this session, we wish to place under scrutiny the contested values which undergird heritage and landscape inventorising and conservation in the postcolonial city. Our specific focus is upon cities whose histories are inextricably wound up with imperial projects, past and present. This could include cities in colonial or metropolitan heartlands whose affluence, landscapes, and built heritage were shaped by colonialism and cities in colonial peripheries caught up in colonisation and bearing the stamp of colonial power, anti-colonial struggles, and decolonisation. In part, we wish to examine how colonial heritages are valued in these city landscapes in the context of neoliberal mega-development projects and place branding. Cultural and historical critiques of city marketing have questioned the ways in which local histories are often appropriated, silenced, and sanitised as part of an attempt to rebrand and repackage cities for new ‘consumers’. With specific respect to the marketing of the postcolonial city and to neoliberal mega-development projects therein, we are keen to explore which stories are told, which not, who gets to decide, and what this all means for landscape preservation and heritage management.
Papers are invited from across the Global North and in particular Global South (especially from early career researchers) which examine:
· The ongoing impress of colonial pasts, anti-colonial struggles, and postcolonial trajectories in contemporary landscapes in cities embroiled in complex colonial and postcolonial histories.
· How colonial landscapes are valued, inventorised and conserved in the postcolonial city.
· Contestation and dissonant values in the heritage debates in the postcolonial city.
· The role of neoliberal and entrepreneurial mega-projects and city marketing in shaping debates on heritage management, including the ‘worlding’ of landscapes in cities in the Global South.
· Methodologies (geo-humanities and digital technologies) through which a wider range of social values might be included in heritage policy and practice.
· The meaning and implications of the recent rise to prominence of a historic urban landscape paradigm for heritage management in the postcolonial city.
Please submit abstracts of up to 250 words to Mark Boyle (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Andrew McClelland (Andrew.McClelland@nuim.ie) by 6th February 2017.

2017’s Milan conference will investigate methodologies of representation, communication, and valorisation of Historic Urban Landscapes and cultural heritage but also placemaking and local identity enhancement.
The conference will promote holistic and multidisciplinary approaches to design which are adapted to meet the challenges of tomorrow, and which support the unique heritage, cultural landscapes and communities that have been developed by local traditions around the world. Participants will share case studies and current practice on the documentation of settlements that should be preserved, focusing on innovative solutions, design challenges in placemaking and identity conservation, cultural issues in heritage assessment, and the technical and craft expression of culture. Critical to the presentation of case studies and current practice will be the use of drawing as a tool for design and creativity.
Deadline for submitting papers for review: 30th January 2017

Abstract submission is currently open for the 3rd International SEAHA Conference at the University of Brighton 19–20 June 2017.

SEAHA research strands represent the full cycle of the creation of data, data to knowledge and knowledge to enterprise generally aligning with three training streams: Materials, Environment and Digital. The conference embraces these themes while also focusing on the interdisciplinary nature of heritage science research and projects. We are particularly keen to attract presentations and posters looking at interdisciplinarity: the challenges, successes, and impacts of research crossing boundaries.
Heritage science is a cross-disciplinary field connecting science and the humanities. It demonstrates the rising interest in and application of interdisciplinary research in the sciences in addition to the challenges with bridging disciplines. Heritage science research is faced with defining and navigating interdisciplinary research, and this is a wider discussion that requires input from scientists, researchers, engineers, professionals, practitioners, entrepreneurs, and policy-makers. This conference aims to provide a platform to engage and discuss emerging trends in the field and the on-going dialogue over global issues, which define the research and technological applications of heritage scientists.
We encourage presenters to go beyond the statement that their research and projects are interdisciplinary and to engage in a discussion about what interdisciplinarity specifically looks like in heritage science research, the challenges and the successes of research crossing boundaries, and the impact of collaborative research with a shared mission.
Abstract submission will close on the 6th of March 2017. Presenters will be notified by mid April.

Modern climate change has serious consequences for the knowledge of our past. Desertification, eroding coasts, rising sea levels and melting permafrost threaten the preservation of natural and cultural sites. These and other damaging processes not only jeopardise the archaeological record, but also the living cultural practices of affected communities and their economic and social resilience. As the planet faces increasing global temperatures, the perils posed by rapid climate change will continue to be a major challenge for archaeology throughout the twenty-first century. This conference will explore the modern climate change related challenges to the practices of archaeology and heritage management, as well as productively contribute to current climate change debates.
Abstracts of no more than 250 words along with a bio of 150 words can be sent by 15 January 2017 to J. Eva Meharry (email@example.com).
