Call for Proposals - PATCH’2014 –  The Future of Experiencing  Cultural 
Heritage, Haifa, Israel. February 24, 2014

** deadline = 26th December, 2013 ** with apologies for cross-posting ** 
The 7th International Workshop on Personalized Access to Cultural 
Heritage (PATCH 2014) will be this year co-located with the Intelligent 
User Interfaces Conference (http://www.iuiconf.org/). IUI is the annual 
meeting of the intelligent interfaces community and serves as the 
principal international forum for reporting outstanding research and 
development on intelligent user interfaces. It takes place in Haifa, 
Israel on 24 February 2014. Next to the full research papers, we also 
encourage submissions of position papers, short papers and 
demonstrations to enable active discussion of the open challenges and 
issues in this area of research. For more details check PATCH2014 
webpage: http://patch2014.wordpress.com/. The PATCH workshop series 
(http://patchworkshopseries.wordpress.com/) is the meeting point between 
state of the art cultural heritage and personalization research – using 
technology to enhance the personal experience in cultural heritage 
applications. We aim at building a research agenda for personalization 
in cultural heritage in order to make the individual cultural heritage 
experience a link in a chain of a lifelong cultural heritage experience 
which builds on past experience, is linked to daily life and provides 
the foundation for future experiences. The workshop aims to be 
multi-disciplinary. It is intended for researchers, practitioners, 
developers and students of information and communication technologies 
(ICT), cultural heritage domains, e.g. museums, archives, libraries, and 
more, and personalization. Topics Multimedia information systems, such 
as interactive tours, visualizations and search engines, are now 
positioned centrally in a shared information space consisting of (1) 
digitized artifacts (2) the social web (3) and links between them. 
Personalization in multimedia information systems can improve the 
experience of visitors by assisting them in finding appropriate starting 
points, and in discovering new relevant information. Critically, these 
systems must become smart, so that they are able to adaptively act, 
react, respond and learn intelligently from user interactions. This 
workshop investigates three timely and interrelated issues relevant to 
the domains of both intelligent user interaction and cultural heritage: 
Mobile, personalized and context-aware cultural heritage information 
delivery – using mobile devices, large displays, projectors embedded in 
the environment and new technologies including Google Glass. Grow 
existing knowledge with new knowledge – Explore methods and tools to 
capture knowledge resulting from interactions between users (collective 
intelligence), professionals and collection artifacts, and interaction 
between users and different (intelligent systems) collecting information 
about them Extend contexts of use – Appropriation of digitized artifacts 
from memory organizations outside the traditional museum and research 
context for both visitors and professionals Call for papers Besides the 
full research papers, we also encourage submissions of position papers, 
short papers and demonstrations to enable active discussion of the open 
challenges and issues in this area of research. We invite submissions of 
work at all stages of development that address any aspects of 
personalization in the cultural heritage domain, e.g., papers which 
describe work in progress, empirical results, position statements, and 
demonstrations of existing systems. An extended abstract of the workshop 
will be included in the ACM Digital Library for IUI 2014. Submissions 
Paper submissions should follow the general ACM Multimedia submission 
guidelines and must comply with the formatting instructions: Full 
papers: max. 10 pages Position papers: max. 4 pages Short papers: max. 4 
pages Demo papers: max. 4 pages All papers should be submitted in PDF 
format via the online submission system. 
(https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=patch2014iui2014). An 
international panel of experts will review all submissions. Demos need 
to provide links to the systems presented. Work that has already been 
published should not be submitted unless it introduces a significant 
addition to the previously published work. Important dates Paper 
Submission: Dec 26, 2013 (extended from Dec 14) Author Notification: Jan
