Call for Participation

The Second International Conference on Culture and Computing
(Culture & Computing 2011)

Date: October 20-22, 2011
Venue: The Clock Tower Centennial Hall, Kyoto University, Japan

*** Early registration deadline is September 10th, 2011 ***

International communities have a myriad of problems around topics
such as: population demographic shifts, energy use and creation,
the environment, and food supply. It is necessary to build a global
consensus for resolving problems within these topic areas.
Unfortunately, there are difficulties in communication among
different cultures. Information and communication technologies
are required in order to overcome such difficulties.

There are various research directions in the relations between
culture and computing: to archive cultural heritages via ICT
(cf. digital archives), to empower humanities researches via ICT
(cf. digital humanities), to create art and expressions via ICT
(cf. media art), to realize a culturally situated agent
(cf. cultural agent), to support multi-language, multi-cultural
societies via ICT (cf. intercultural collaboration), and to
understand new cultures born in the Internet and Web (cf. net culture).

The Second International Conference on Culture and Computing
(Culture & Computing 2011) will be held in Kyoto, the cultural
heart of Japan, to provide an opportunity to share research issues
and discuss the future of culture and computing. The conference
will have a single session Main Track and two parallel session
Special Tracks (Digital Humanities, and Asian Culture based
Media Art). The conference received many high quality submissions
