10:30 | Session 1 Immersive tour
This session takes the form of a visit to a space designed and built with digital technology. It is presented by experts, both face-to-face and virtually, and allows you to check the various development companies carried out by heritage and cultural institutions.

Manuscripts, plants, leather and paper, from sensory object to digital library: Case study Numistral Session moderated by Madeleine Hubert, Jean-Pierre Rosenkranz and Rozanne Wingert.
Madeleine Hubert is the laboratory manager, responsible for the Bnu Laboratory and data mediation services.
Jean-Pierre Rosenkranz is a photographer for the digitization workshop.
Rosanne Wingert is responsible for the digital libraries and information service.

The laboratory is an annex of the National and University Library of Strasbourg, whose mission is to host activities that are difficult to carry out in more traditional library spaces. Its definition is broad enough to scale. Thus, the space is, for now, not exclusively, but dedicated to collaboration around the main ambition: data mediation. Its 100 m² space and modular equipment bring together conditions for the physical meeting of different actors to form a community around the training and development of information culture. The lab team handles access requests and equipment reservations, but it can also support professional or personal projects and advise users on digital experiences. New services focus on collaboration as a source of the newest and most useful ideas.

13:30 | Session 2 Scientific mediation and exploration

Stéphane Potier and Stéphanie Baunet Klein, “Digital Mediation at Work. Challenges of immersive devices at the Œuvre Notre-Dame museum »
Stéphane Potier architect, co-founder of the digital journey, Société Inventive Studio.
Stéphanie Baunet Klein is responsible for mediation and cultural projects of the Department of Education and Culture of the Museums, referent of the Museum of Notre Dame.
Various digital devices are placed in the collections to facilitate the understanding of the works of art.

Virtual immersion, augmented reality and holograms highlight the museum circuit. In what context do these digital offerings fit? What are the motives behind the design of such devices using the most innovative technologies? What about public perception? How are these devices changing the experience of visiting a museum? How to think of “human” mediated propositions compatible with digital tools?

Rose-Marie Arbogast, Marie Meister and Samba Soussoko (University of Strasbourg), “Digital Atlas of Vertebrates”
Rose-Marie Arbogast, director of research at the CNRS, prehistory and archaeozoologist, is in charge of the osteotechnique of the Zoological Museum of Strasbourg.
Marie Meister is a research director at the CNRS, a biologist specializing in the promotion of scientific heritage.
Samba Soussoko is a writer-director specializing in popularizing science.

The Vertebrates application is a digital atlas designed as a tool for observing and comparing the bones of individuals from different species (animals and humans) using high-resolution 3D images. Its implementation is the result of a collaboration between the CNRS Archimède UMR 7044 laboratory, Archeology Alsace, the National Museum of Natural History and Laetoli Production. Vertébrés is aimed at the scientific community (researchers in archeology and archaeozoology), students (osteology, biology, zoology, veterinary school students), teachers (colleges, high schools), but also the general public (staff of natural history museums, scientific mediators). , artists, etc.). It is both a comparative anatomy tool and an interactive osteology atlas of today over 4,000 high-resolution digitized bones, i.e. 32 taxa, 22 complete and reassembled in anatomical relationship.

15:15 | A break

15:30-17:00 | Session 3 In Search of Tools

Frédéric Colin and Cassandre Hartenstein, “3D Modeling of Contexts and Artifacts in the Field and in an Egyptological Collection”
Frédéric Colin is Professor of Egyptology at the University of Strasbourg (USIAS Marc Bloch Chair).
Cassandre Hartenstein is a USIAS research assistant, Egyptologist and papyrologist.

The speakers will present the results of an experiment between the Luxor archaeological site and the Egyptological collection of the University of Strasbourg to adapt digital photogrammetry techniques to the purposes of archaeology. . How to document excavated objects as well as their archaeological contexts, how to use 3D models for heuristic and display purposes, how to permanently archive them, and how to disseminate them on sharing platforms and online publications? How to embrace a new medium conceived in two dimensions, such as its historical forebears, volumes and codices, which undermine the traditional concept of applied scholarly publishing in three dimensions, even in the form of digital journals.
