The paper deadline for the workshop Plug into Cultural Heritage as part of the INTETAIN 2017 conference,
June 20–22, 2017, Portugal:, has been extended to * May 1 *.

See below for details:


What is cultural heritage? How can society become more actively involved in cultural heritage activities, not only as an observer but also as a contributor to the definition of heritage? Cultural heritage is considered an important precondition for genuine sustainability. However, existing applications for heritage dissemination do not really create heritage communities. Adequate ICT tools are necessary to support citizens in their everyday activities in shaping cultural heritage and be shaped by it. Social platforms offer potential to build such networks, but can be further exploited for heritage promotion. Technology could help better in providing a seamless integration of cultural heritage in people’s everyday life.

This workshop aims to bridge this gap by exploring on necessary tools and challenges to allow citizens to share and obtain local heritage knowledge. We invite contributions relevant to cultural heritage (tangible, intangible and natural) such as literature studies, user studies, design concepts, and position papers. Topics include but are not limited to:

  *   Technology design and evaluations incl. augmented and virtual reality, collaborative games, locative multimedia, and mobile HCI in general
  *   Opportunities and challenges for community involvement incl. special interest groups such as the elderly and migrant communities
  *   The role of current social media in cultural heritage awareness
