TMM_CH - 2nd TMM_CH 2021 Steering and Scientific Committees Meeting


Monday July 12th, 2021


The second joint working meeting of the International Steering Committee and the International Scientific Committee of the 2nd International TMM_CH Conference "Transdisciplinary Multispectral Modelling and Cooperation for the Preservation of Cultural Heritage. Rebranding the World in Crisis through Culture" took place online on Monday July 12th 2021 at 14:00 CEST.

94 participants from different Universities around the world that joined the meeting had a very constructive cooperation regarding the review process and the organization of the panels of the Conference.

Approximately 150 scientific papers have already been submitted in the EasyChair TMM_CH 2021 submission platform and the members of the Committees have announced that more than another 20-30 papers from their teams will be submitted within the next couple of days. Therefore it was decided to extend the paper submission deadline until Tuesday July 27th 2021.

Since some of the papers were only submitted in abstract form, the review process will be divided in two phases. The papers that have been submitted within July 2021 in full paper form will be reviewed during August 2021 and distributed in Scientific Journals to be published first, ensuring any Journal fees to be waived. All other papers that require further corrections and will be submitted in final form by October 11th 2021, according to the Conference’s roadmap, will be published after the second phase of the review process, in Proceedings and other Scientific Journals following the Conference.

During the meeting, an update was discussed on the Proceedings and Scientific Journals in the field of Cultural Heritage Preservation, that all accepted papers will be published following the above scheme.

Finally, an initial discussion on the Conference’s panels took place, with the following proposed panels, regarding the relevant topics of the Conference.

The next meeting is scheduled in early September 2021.
