Call for Papers

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

Date: October 19-22, 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 below.

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.
