ACM-SIGCHI supported summer school on

Technology for Cultural Heritage (Tech4CH)
May 18 - May 22

University of Haifa, Haifa, Israel 


It is a pleasure to invite you to Technology for Cultural Heritage (Tech4CH)
summer school. The summer school is intended primarily for graduate research
students and is organized by the department of Information Systems at the
University of Haifa. The summer school will take place in Haifa, Israel on
May 18th - May 22nd 2020.

Leading international researchers will introduce novel technologies and
human-computer interaction techniques suitable for the IoT era.

Visits to indoors and outdoors sites will inspire the participants to design
novel interfaces. In addition to lecture presentations by leading
researchers, participants will form groups where they will design and
develop novel ideas for research projects around how novel technologies and
interfaces can be integrated and deployed in a realistic setting for the
benefit of users.

The first three days will be dedicated to lectures and small groups work and
during the last two days the participants will take part in the Digital
Humanities Hackathon <

The summer school has a triple aim:

- To map out current state of the art technologies to the cultural heritage
domain and identify design challenges.

- To examine the potential of technologies for enhancing the cultural
heritage visit experience.

- To define initial ideas for solutions that may lead to future research


The envisioned benefits for participants are:

- Meeting and networking with renowned international experts

- Working in an interdisciplinary and culturally diverse team

- A collaboratively written research roadmap for intelligent user interfaces
applied to cultural heritage

- A research proposal/position papers/demos/posters to be submitted to
relevant workshops/conferences
