AVI2CH 20 Advanced Visual Interfaces and Interactions in Cultural Heritage -
call for papers

The rapid development of ICT and the Internet has enabled CH institutions to
provide access to their collections in multiple various ways, both onsite
and online, and to attract even wider audiences than those that visit the
physical museums. In parallel and part of the above, there is an enormous
growth in user interfaces and in information visualization technologies. The
range of interfaces is growing by the day - from tiny smart watch screens to
wall-size large public displays. Regarding virtual advanced interfaces,
there are several successful examples, for instance, applications of 3D
technologies for virtual museums.

The use of (web) 3D in cultural heritage promotion allows the general public
to live immersive experiences in virtual, reconstructed locations, like
ancient towns and locations, and to visit existent, but remotely located
locations, such as world-wide cultural institutions (such as Google Art
Project). For preservation purposes, web 3D provides scholars and cultural
heritage professionals with a way to consult and maintain visual
repositories of real exhibits, with the possibility of visualizing,
comparing and studying 3D digital equivalents of real artworks physically
situated in different locations. Cultural heritage is one challenging domain
of application for such novel ICT technology. CH is ubiquitous - just look
around you.

There is an abundance of CH related information available, about almost
every object we can think of. How can we access and enjoy this information
in Ubiquitous Computing scenario? Advanced and natural human-computer
interaction is a key factor in enabling access to cultural heritage. Visual
interfaces, whether they are tiny mobile screens or large wall mounted
displays, can all be part of a ubiquitous CH infrastructure, where
information can be personalized and displayed/projected, on screens or
overlaid on real objects and advanced form of interaction could be
experimented with (e.g., gestural interaction, augmented interaction, vocal
interaction, etc.).

Following the wealth of studies and publications in recent years focusing on
exploring the potential of novel technology to enhance CH experience, the
success of AVI-CH 2016 (that yielded a follow-up special issue focused on
advances visual interfaces for cultural heritage), and considering that 2018
has been declared the European Year of Cultural Heritage, the goal of the
workshop is again to bring together researchers and practitioners interested
in exploring the potential use of state-of-the-art advanced visual
interfaces in enhancing our daily cultural heritage experience.
