Call for Papers

International Conference on Culture and Computing (Culture and Computing

Date: October 17-19, 2015
Venue: The Clock Tower Centennial Hall, Kyoto University, Japan

Culture and Computing is a new research area which aims to overcome
different cultural issues in international communities using information and
communication technologies (ICT). 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 provides an
opportunity to share research issues and discuss the future of culture and
computing, which was established in Kyoto, the cultural heart of Japan in
2010, and has been held once every two years in Kyoto, Japan since 2011. The
conference is also held in even years when there is a voluntary host city
(e.g., Culture and Computing 2012 in Hangzhou, China).

Culture and Computing 2015 will also be organized with an exhibition on the
integration of state of the art cultural computing technologies and Japanese
traditional culture, along with organized sessions, poster sessions and
demonstrations. There will be a performance of Kyogen (a form of traditional
Japanese comic theater) in social events. Especially we are also proud to
announce the keynote talk and the invited talk in Culture and Computing 2015
as shown below.

- Keynote Talk: Music cultures opened up by music technologies (Dr.
Masataka Goto, National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and
Technology (AIST), Japan)

- Invited Talk: Antoni Gaudí and his role in forming a traditional craft -
digital culture continuum (Professor Mark Burry, Faculty of Architecture,
Building and Planning, University of Melbourne,

We invite submission to a wide range of venues including papers, posters,
and demos. Submissions are solicited on any aspect on the intersection of
culture and computing, but are expected to be suitable for a
multidisciplinary audience. In Culture and Computing 2015, we especially
encourage submissions on three topics: culture and computing for Tokyo
Olympics, open data for culture and computing, and culture in social
network. Other examples of suitable submission topics 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
