Crete, Greece



Phaistos_01.jpg Technology develops most successfully when specialists exchange information freely; one of the most unique aspects of this conference is its international reach. Over its sixteen-year history, the conference has been held in fourteen and has hosted participants from thirty-five countries.

Perhaps there is no more mysterious place in the world than Crete: hundreds of legends, thousands of traditions, and the birth and outcome of civilizations. The history of Crete is a history of the genius of human thought. For the first time, multistory buildings appeared here, along with natural and artificial lighting, sanitation, ventilation, heating, and paved roads—prototypes of the current “smart” cities. It was hardly possible without understanding how geographical space was arranged.

This year we set ourselves to the task of stretching the bridge between the achievements of the past, the present, and the future. We wanted to connect the history imprinted on the maps of Ptolemy, the labyrinths of the Palace of Knossos, and the photo of Gaspard-Félix Tournachon with the modern systems of digital reality, based on the photogrammetric processing of remote sensing data.
