The 7th ISPRS/CIPA 3D-ARCH international workshop on “3D Virtual Reconstruction and Visualization of Complex Architectures” will be held in Nafplio (Greece) on 1-3 March 2017.

Nafplio is an heritage seaport village in the Peloponnesus peninsula, ca 2h south-west of Athens.

The event is the 7th in a row after the successful editions in
– 2005 in Venice (,
– 2007 in Zurich (,
– 2009 in Trento (,
– 2011 in Trento (,
– 2013 in Trento (
– 2015 in Avila (

The 2017 edition will focus on the steps and processes for smart 3D reconstruction, modelling, accessing and understanding of virtual environments from multiple data sources.

Topics include:
– Multi-source data and multi-sensors approaches
– Low-cost sensors and open-source algorithms for terrestrial 3D modeling
– Automation in data registration
– Image matching and 3D reconstruction
– Point cloud analysis
– 4D modelling
– Procedural modeling and BIM
– Accuracy requirement and assessment in 3D reconstructions
– Virtual and Augmented Reality applied to the visualization and conservation of complex architectures and heritage

The event will have single-track technical sessions with oral presentations, poster sessions and demos.


The registration fee includes the participation at the scientific event, proceedings, lunches, coffee breaks, welcome party and social dinner.
