NEWS: Extended Deadline!

Due to several requests, papers are now due by* April 2, 2021.*

The 12th International Workshop on Personalized Access to Cultural Heritage
(PATCH 2021) co-located with ACM UMAP 2021 - Online

Abstract and Topics

Following the successful series of PATCH workshops, PATCH 2021 will be
again the meeting point between state of the art cultural heritage (CH)
research and personalization research. For those using any kind of
technology, while focusing on ubiquitous and adaptive scenarios, to enhance
the personal experience in CH sites. The workshop is aimed at bringing
together researchers and practitioners who are working on various aspects
of CH and are interested in exploring the potential of state of the art of
mobile and personalized technology (onsite as well as online) to enhance
the CH visit experience. The expected result of the workshop is a
multidisciplinary research agenda that will inform future research
directions and hopefully, forge some research collaborations.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:


   Adaptive navigation and personalized browsing in digital and physical
   cultural heritage collections and in CH sites

   Ambient Cultural Heritage

   Personalization for group of visitors to CH sites

   Personalization for collective CH information authoring and management

   Creativity and collaboration support in CH

   Personalized mobile museum guides & personal museum assistants

   Recommendation strategies for CH

   Adaptation strategies for text and non-verbal content in CH

   NLG techniques and conversational agents for CH

   (User Interaction with) Integration of virtual and physical collections

   Analysis of behavior patterns to improve CH recommendation

   Personalization across the whole of a person's digital ecosystem
   (including CH)

   Long term personalization in CH

   IoT and Cultural Heritage

   Human-Robots adaptation in museums

   3D, Virtual and Augmented Reality for Cultural Heritage

   Context-aware information presentation in CH

   Interactive user interfaces for CH applications

   Gestural interfaces for Cultural Heritage applications

   Use of personality for guiding Cultural Heritage Experiences

   Participatory CH including multiple viewpoints and perspectives

   Community mapping for CH information sharing

   Multiple viewpoints and perspectives for CH

   Remote access to CH

   Personalized support to the exploration of Cultural and Natural Heritage


Cultural heritage (CH) has traditionally been a privileged area for
personalization research, as highlighted by the many H2020 calls on this
topic. Visitors come to cultural heritage sites willing to experience and
learn new things, usually without a clear idea of what to expect. CH sites
are typically rich in objects and information; much more than the visitor
can absorb during the limited time of a visit. As discussed by Falk (2009),
visitors to CH sites differ and their visit experience involves a
combination of the physical, the personal, and the socio-cultural context
and identity-related aspects. Hence, they may benefit from individualized
support that takes into account contextual and personal attributes.
However, personalization brings two main challenges:


   Firstly, can we support CH exploration for first-time and anonymous
   visitors, taking into account that many people access cultural sites only
   once, or they interact with digital services anonymously?

   Secondly, when it is possible to track users along time, can we provide
   an engaging experience for the ‘digital’, ‘mobile’ and ‘traditional’ CH
   visitors before, during and after a visit by exploiting information from
   previous interactions on CH sites and elsewhere on the ubiquitous Web?
   Further, an interesting problem to explore is whether this kind of support
   can be a basis for maintaining a lifelong chain of personalized CH
   experiences. This is true, not only in “traditional” CH sites, but also in
   urban environments, which reflect the varied history of mankind and offer
   places and objects representing shared values for the population, to be
   preserved and valued.

Regular papers: up to 10 pages excluding references;

Position paper/Demo papers: up to 4 pages excluding references.

Papers that exceed the page limits or formatting guidelines will be
returned without review.

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

Papers must be formatted according to the new workflow for ACM
publications. The templates and instructions are available here:

All papers should be submitted in PDF format via the online submission
system by selecting the track "Workshop-PATCH":

An international panel of experts will review all submissions.

Work that has already been published should not be submitted unless it
introduces a significant addition to the previously published work.

There will be a conference adjunct proceedings published by ACM where all
the workshop papers will be published.

Important dates:

April 2, 2021: Submission deadline (23:59 PM Hawaiian time)

March 26, 2021: Submission deadline (23:59 PM Hawaiian time)

April 19, 2021: Notification deadline (23:59 PM Hawaiian time)

May 7, 2021: Camera-Ready deadline (23:59 PM Hawaiian time)
