ECAI Workshop:

This workshop aims at illuminating the Buddhist


past by documenting the circulation of ideas,
people and goods across Asia via the so-called
Maritime Silk Road(s). The ECAI Atlas of
Maritime Buddhisn Project highlights the
maritime contribution to the development of a
premodern global network of trade and cultural
diffusion, within which Buddhism was seamlessly
integrated.
The Atlas initiative is supported by an
international team of researchers utilizing
new data collection technologies and
advanced data mapping to integrate the
latest archaeological evidence. This
workshop provides the projects
researchers an opportunity to
present their findings and to
discuss best practices in the
preservation and digitalization
of cultural heritage.
