Culture & Computing’ 2012
Oct. 21-24, Hangzhou, China
Contact: Fan Dai, [log in to unmask]

To bring the computing techniques into the culture may be one of the newest research trends in recently. There are many successful research topics, which integrate the culture and computing, e.g. 
evaluating the trend of literature culture via data mining, constructing the scenes of culture heritages via 3D modeling, reappearing the culture heritages via AI etc.

The International Conference on Culture and Computing (Culture &
Computing) will be held in Hangzhou, a famous city with many cultural heritages in China, to provide an opportunity to share research issues and discuss the future of culture and computing. To get more information about this series conference and understand the proceedings at the previous conference, please visit

The third conference (Culture & Computing 2012) will be organized with an exhibition on the integration of state of the art cultural computing technologies and Chinese 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 and Robotics," "Asian Culture based Media Art", “Chinese Medicine and IT” and "Computing and Music" at this conference.
In 2012, the proceedings will be published by IEEE (EI) and some special issues in journals such as Transactions on Edutainment (EI), Entertainment Computing [EI] and International Journal of VR will be arranged.
