Call for paper ECLAP 2012 Conference on

Information Technologies for Performing Arts, Media Access and Entertainment
7-9 May 2012, Florence, Italy

Conference web page:
Deadline of the Call for Paper Submission: 22, December 2011
Call for papers:

It has been a long history of Information Technology innovations
within the Cultural Heritage areas. The Performing arts have also
been enforced with a number of new innovations which unveil a range
of synergies and possibilities.  Most of the technologies and
innovations produced for digital libraries, media entertainment and
education can be exploited in the field of performing arts, with
adaptation and repurposing. Performing arts offer many interesting
challenges and opportunities for research and innovations and
exploitation of cutting edge research results from interdisciplinary
areas. For these reasons, the ECLAP 2012 Conference can be regarded
as a continuation of past conferences such as AXMEDIS and WEDELMUSIC
(both pressed by IEEE and FUP). ECLAP is a European Commission project
to create a social network and media access service for performing arts
institutions in Europe, to create the e-library of performing arts,
exploiting innovative solutions coming from the ICT.

The ECLAP 2012 conference is open to researchers, professionals,
industries, institutions, technicians and practitioners in the area
of performing arts and information technologies, media entertainment,
technology enhanced learning, intelligent media systems, acoustic
systems, cultural heritage, and many others. The ECLAP conference
should become a place where institutions, industries and European
Commission and Europeana projects in the areas of cultural heritage
can find a place to collaborate and present results. Thus, we invite
all the interested groups to organize a workshop/section into ECLAP
conference providing their proposal. Exhibition section offers settings
(booth and tables) to host demonstrators. Demo and poster sections
will be also organized.

The ECLAP 2012 conference is going to have a general track and a set
of workshops/sections and panels, and excellent keynote speakers.
The conference will be constituted by selected top level papers,
which will be published in the proceedings pressed by Florence
University Press, with ISBN, and promoted in the 
most relevant indexing engines.
