Call for Papers, Deadline: 31st January 2013

The Information Technology age has facilitated many significant changes 
in the field of cultural heritage and continues to be a dynamic and 
exciting forum for the emergence of new possibilities. This wave of 
change has had particularly significant consequences in the field of the 
Performing Arts, where the vast potential for digital content and new 
information technology exploitation continues to reveal itself, opening 
the doors to new and as-yet-unexplored synergies. Many technological 
developments concerning digital libraries, media entertainment, and 
education are now fully developed and ready to be exported, applied, 
utilized, and cultivated by the public.
In the spirit of this vibrant environment, ECLAP is pleased to announce 
the 2013 Conference on Information Technologies for Performing Arts, 
Media Access and Entertainment. Established by co-funding from the 
European Commission (ICT-PSP), ECLAP is a Best Practice Network that 
aims to create a network of experts and media access service for 
performing arts institutions in Europe, along with an e-library for the 
performing arts.

The ECLAP 2013 conference is open to researchers, professionals, 
industries, institutions, technicians, and practitioners in the area of 
performing arts and information technologies, media entertainment, 
technology enhanced learning, intelligent media systems, acoustic 
systems, cultural heritage, open data, content management, semantic 
models, metadata standards, and many others. The ECLAP conference aims 
to create a forum in which progress-oriented individuals and 
institutions within the aforementioned professions can find a place to 
collaborate and present results. We cordially invite all interested 
groups and individuals to submit proposals for sessions within the 
event, sessions, papers, posters and exhibitions. Each exhibition 
session offers space (booths and tables) to host demonstrators. Demo and 
poster sessions will also be organized.

The ECLAP 2013 conference will confirm a keynote-speaker lineup 
consisting of some of the most salient voices in the field and is 
currently looking to put together a set of sessions and panels that will 
conform to a standard of excellence. The conference will comprise 
selected top-level papers, which will be published complete with ISBN 
and largely indexed via Springer (pending), and promoted in the most 
relevant indexing engines.
