                      CDCH2012: CALL FOR PAPERS

  Creative Design for Interdisciplinary Projects in Cultural Heritage
               September 30, 2012 -- Innsbruck, Austria
               Workshop in conjunction with VL/HCC 2012


** Our apologies if you receive multiple copies of this announcement **

The complexity and the expanding scale of most design processes that
take place in today’s world require more comprehensive knowledge than
any single expert can possess. In order to work collaboratively and
reach common goals, experts from different disciplines have to share
their specialized knowledge, skills, and practices. Cultural Heritage
is a field where technology is making great strides. In this field,
technology is no longer used only for management purposes but also for
the creation of powerful software tools in support of advanced
research. Since important recent researches have recognized the need to
enlarge the level of community involvement in creating and enriching
cultural knowledge, the purpose of this workshop is to bring together
several domain experts to discuss the importance of the use of
creativity methods and tools in interdisciplinary projects in cultural
heritage. Understanding, capturing, supporting creative processes for
developing domain-oriented habitable environments, needs to study how
to enable collaborations between interdisciplinary communities of
practices. In fact, the knowledge related to a specific domain is
tacitly distributed among all the people who live and work in it. They
are all required to communicate and collaborate by sharing their
knowledge but their variety leads to the rise of communication gaps:
they all have different cultural backgrounds, play different roles in
their organizations, and use different notations and languages to
express their knowledge and wisdom. In this way, the individuals’
creativities merge with each other giving birth to a more wide social
creativity that could represent the answer for dealing with complexity
in interdisciplinary design teams. In this frame, this one-day workshop
is aimed at investigating methods and at designing tools to support
communication among different communities of practice and to foster
creative processes in collaborative interdisciplinary projects in
cultural heritage. To this aim the intended audience will be made of
experts both in cultural domain – e.g. archaeologists, historians,
artists – and in technology/science – e.g. computer scientists, Human-
Computer Interaction (HCI) experts, software designers, cognitive
psychologists, architects, and geologists. This workshop could offer
the chance to create a network of people belonging to academic world as
well as to the industry and public administration to develop further
interdisciplinary projects in cultural heritage domain.

- Methods, tools and techniques for supporting creative design
processes in cultural heritage projects.
- Methods, tools and techniques for observing and studying creative
design processes in cultural heritage projects.
- Creativity by interdisciplinary teams, organizations, and communities.
- Creative Design for Innovation in interdisciplinary projects in
cultural heritage.
- Digital Culture and Cultural Heritage:  New Technologies, New
Channels, New Culture.
- Case studies and experiences illustrating the role of creativity in
design in cultural heritage projects.

Papers must be 2-4 pages long and formatted according to the IEEE
Conference Proceedings template (
/conferences/publishing/templates.html). Submissions must be in PDF
format and must be submitted via Easychair (
/conferences/?conf=cdch2012). The review process will select the papers
on the basis of quality, topic relevance, innovation and potential to
foster discussion.

Submission deadline: April 30th, 2012
