Presentation Title: The role of modelling and simulation in identification prevention and mitigation of fire-related threats towards cultural heritage sites, structures and artefacts


Abstract

From our perspective, we approach the digital culture and tourism markets, with the scope of highlighting the economic and business aspects of them. More specifically, we research how factors that determine economic feasibility of business projects in that areas, like demand and consumption, revenues, profits, etc., are related with other determining economic as well as  social factors like prices, income, currency exchange rates, age structure, educational level, cultural activity, etc. By the use of statistics we investigate the correlation between tourism flows and digital products sales and fluctuations of the values of the above aforementioned determinants and by the use of econometric modelling, we attempt to measure the form and the degree of the dependence between them, to explain it on the basis of economic and social theories and to forecast future market fluctuations in these areas.
