Dear all,

FYI, looking forward to see what you come up with!

The 7th International Workshop on Personalised 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
personalisation research – using technology to enhance the personal
experience in cultural heritage applications. We aim at building a research
agenda for personalisation 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 personalisation.


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.


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.
