Abstract

In the last two decades, the advent of digital technologies on large scale has paved the way to the application of Artificial Intelligence technologies to the study, preservation and accessibility of cultural heritage. On the one side, the availability of digital data can push forward the study of heritage, improving our understanding of the past, and our capability to preserve and transmit it to new generations; on the other side, it can reduce the gap between heritage and its audiences, leading heritage to the role of engine of cultural and societal progress envisaged by the FARO Convention since 2005. 
In cultural heritage, the development of applications usually requires the involvement of an interdisciplinary team, and is often constrained to standard formats and frameworks elaborated by national and international institutions. This multidisciplinary approach represents, at the same time, a challenge and an opportunity for Artificial intelligence, since it calls for the elaboration and formalization of original models and the refinement of existing tools and technologies, and the creation of novel ones.

  • Project papers (6 pages) excluding references
    General overviews of research projects

All papers must be written in English and formatted according to the new workflow for CEUR-WS style proceedings guidelines. The guidelines can be found here:
http://ceur-ws.org/HOWTOSUBMIT.html

Authors should submit their papers as single-column. The templates are available here (we strongly recommend the usage of LaTeX for the camera-ready papers to minimize the extent of reformatting):

Authors should clearly indicate the topic/s and the type of the contribution.

Submissions should be single blinded, i.e. authors names should be included in the submissions.

Papers must be submitted in PDF format via the online submission system by selecting “AI4CH (The 1st Workshop on Artificial Intelligence for Cultural Heritage)”:
https://easychair.org/my/conference?conf=ai4ch

All papers will be peer-reviewed by at least two members of the programme committee and evaluated on the basis of relevance, originality, significance, soundness, and clarity. Papers that exceed the page limits or formatting guidelines will be returned without review. Final copies of papers for inclusion to the conference proceedings will be published on CEUR in the AI*IA series (Scopus indexed). At least one author must attend the conference to present the paper.
