Call for Demonstrations and Posters:



We are pleased to invite you to contribute to the Second Workshop on Mobile
Access to Cultural Heritage(MobileCH 2018), to be held in Barcelona (Spain)
on September 3rd 2018, in conjunction with Mobile HCI 2018 - the 20th
International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction with Mobile Devices
and Services.


Given the growing interest in Cultural Heritage (CH) and considering that
2018 has been declared the European Year of Cultural Heritage , but also
following the successful workshop at Mobile HCI 2016, Mobile-CH 2018 will be
again the meeting point between cultural heritage and personalization
research - using any kind of mobile technology to enhance the personal
experience in cultural heritage sites. The proposed workshop aims at
bringing together researchers and practitioners who are working on various
aspects of CH and are interested in exploring the potential of cutting-edge
mobile technology (onsite as well as online) to enhance the CH visit
experience. This include researchers, practitioners, and students from the
Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) area, as well as from the
domains of CH and Humanities (including museums, archives, libraries, and
more). We also expect to attract personalization researchers who want to
explore this class of contexts. The expected result of the workshop is a
multidisciplinary research agenda that will be based on recent research
results, will define future research directions, and forge new research


Any work which is at the same time relevant to the Mobile HCI 2018 general
list of topics, and that is being applied to cultural heritage is relevant
to the workshop. Specific topics of interest, when applied to cultural
heritage include (but are not limited to):


    - Navigation and browsing in digital and physical cultural heritage

    - Recommendation strategies for CH

    - Adaptation strategies for text and non-verbal content in CH

    - NLG techniques for mobile user modeling in CH sites

    - Integration of virtual and physical collections

    - Ambient Cultural Heritage

    - Mobile museum guides & personal museum assistants

    - Context-aware information presentation in CH

    - Interactive user interfaces for CH applications

    - Personalization for group of visitors to CH sites

    - Personalization across the whole of an person's digital ecosystem

    - Long term personalization

    - IoT and Cultural Heritage

    - The cloud and Cultural Heritage




We invite researchers to propose demonstrations and posters. Work that is
best suited for a poster submission includes - but is not limited to -
research prototype, software demonstration, preliminary results, provoking
and current topics, novel experiences or interactions that have not been
fully tested but show great promise, summaries of small-scale studies,
design explorations, etc. Posters provide the opportunity for researchers to
get feedback on early-stage work, to promote pieces of software in the field
of Cultural Heritage, and to discuss potential collaborations in MobileCH in
an informal manner. All demo and poster submissions must include an extended
abstract in PDF format (up to 2 pages). 


The submissions must be formatted according to the LNCS Format. At least one
author of each poster/demonstration must register to the workshop


Please clearly precise in our paper if you are proposing a poster or a
