EuroMed2010  - Call for Papers

Dedicated to Digital Cultural Heritage and Digital Libraries

November 8 - 13th, 2010
Limassol, Cyprus


You are kindly invited to submit a paper to the EUROMED2010 joint 
conference which will provide an opportunity to exchange research 
results, opinions, experiences and proposals on the best practice 
and hi-tech tools from Information and Communications Technology 
to document, archive, preserve, manage and communicate Cultural 
Heritage (CH). The main goal of the event is not only to 
illustrate the programs underway but also excellent work wherever 
it is located and however it is supported, in order to promote a 
common approach to the tasks of e- documentation of World 
Cultural Heritage. Furthermore, regional capacities in the area 
of Cultural Heritage and IT will be facilitated in advancing 
their know-how through the exchange of information and generation 
of new ideas and cooperation's, where the world meets the finger 
prints of several ancient civilizations on earth.

To reach this ambitious goal the topics covered will include 
experiences in the use of innovative recording technologies & 
methods and how to take best advantage to integrate the results 
obtained to build up new tools and/or experiences as well as 
improved methodologies for documenting, managing and 
communicating CH.

The EuroMed2010 joint event will focus on interdisciplinary and 
multi- disciplinary research concerning both cutting edge 
Cultural Heritage Informatics and use of technology for the 
representation, documentation, preservation, archiving and 
communication of CH knowledge. The scope includes standards, 
metadata and every phase of CH information technology: initial 
data capture/digitization, information/data processing, 
reconstruction, visualization and documentation as well as 
dissemination of results to the scientific and cultural heritage 
communities and to the general public (Multilingua, Multimedia 
Digital Library). We are also interested in aspects of the wider 
legal, IPR and ethical responsibilities of Cultural Heritage 
Informatics. Research subjects parallel the interests of  CIPA, 
ISPRS and EuroMed including culturally significant monuments, 
artefacts and sites as well as the activities of museums, 
libraries, archives, and organizations involved with their care.

Those researchers who wish to participate in this event are 
invited to submit papers on original and unpublished work 
addressing the following subjects:

-Digital Data Acquisition Technologies in CH
-2D and 3D Data Capture Methodologies and Data Processing in CH
-On-site and remotely sensed data collection
