Call for Papers

The Second International Conference on Culture and Computing
(Culture and Computing 2011)

Date: October 20-22, 2011
Venue: The Clock Tower Centennial Hall, Kyoto University, Japan
http://www.ai.soc.i.kyoto-u.ac.jp/culture2011/

International communities have a myriad of problems around topics
such as: population demographic shifts, energy use and creation,
the environment, and food supply. It is necessary to build a
global consensus for resolving problems within these topic areas.
Unfortunately, there are difficulties in communication among
different cultures. Information and communication technologies
are required in order to overcome such difficulties.

There are various research directions in the relations between
culture and computing:
to archive cultural heritages via ICT (cf. digital archives),
to empower humanities researches via ICT (cf. digital humanities),
to create art and expressions via ICT (cf. media art),
to realize a culturally situated agent (cf. cultural agent),
to support multi-language, multi-cultural societies via ICT
(cf. intercultural collaboration), and to understand new cultures
born in the Internet and Web (cf. net culture).

The International Conference on Culture and Computing
(Culture & Computing) will be held in Kyoto, the cultural heart
of Japan, to provide an opportunity to share research issues and
discuss the future of culture and computing. To understand the
proceedings at the previous conference, please visit
http://www.ai.soc.i.kyoto-u.ac.jp/culture2010/index.html.

The second conference (Culture & Computing 2011) will be organized
with an exhibition on the integration of state of the art cultural
computing technologies and Japanese traditional culture,
along with a number of co-located events.

Papers are solicited on any aspect on the intersection of culture
and computing, but all papers are expected to be suitable for a
multidisciplinary audience. We have a single session Main Track
and a few parallel session Special Tracks. The Main Track will
present a collection of scientific or engineering research results.
Examples of suitable paper topics for the Main Track include:

•Archiving cultural heritages
•Information environments for humanity studies
•Art and design by information technologies
•Digital storytelling
•Intercultural communication and collaboration
•Culturally situated agents and simulations
•Game and culture
•Analysis of new culture in the Internet and Web
•Culture and brain science

The Special Tracks are collections of short papers, and are
organized in coordination with the Main Track for the purpose of
encouraging discussions in hot areas. We have Special Tracks for
"Digital Humanities," "Asian Culture based Media Art" and
"Computing and Music" at this conference.
