GCH 2023 : EUROGRAPHICS Workshop on Graphics and Cultural Heritage
Call For Papers
You are cordially invited to contribute to the 21st EUROGRAPHICS Workshop on Graphics and Cultural Heritage (GCH) which. GCH 2023 (https://www.gch2023.eu/) welcomes presentations of new research, projects, demonstrations and applications that demonstrate how computer graphics and other digital technologies are impacting cultural heritage research, preservation and dissemination and promoting sustainable cultural tourism. Specific sessions will be organised to seek new challenges and projects involving different stakeholders of the Heritage ecosystem. Hence, interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary approaches are particularly welcome to the event.
The 21st Eurographics Workshop on Graphics and Cultural Heritage (GCH 2023) is organised in the astonishing location of Salento (Lecce, Italy), for the first time as a joint event and in co-location with XRSalento (XRSalento 2023), that will be organised from the 6th to the 8th of September.
A special interactive session will be held by the two conferences, jointly, dedicated to “XR for Cultural Heritage”, that will contribute to cross fertilisation among sectors. The events will run on site, with hybrid support only for registered attendees.
The entire 2023 joint event, including GCH and XR Salento is entitled “Salento Conference”.
Focus of this year’s forum, is to present and showcase new developments at the crossroad of AI technologies with Rendering, Reconstruction and advanced User Experience applications to CH.
Aim of EG GCH is to foster discussion between AI, Computer Vision, Computer Graphics and HCI researchers with a dedicated focus on applications for the Digital Cultural Heritage.
We encourage the community to participate to the panel discussion on hopes and worries about the adoption of AI and reconstruction technologies by scientists and practitioners in the field of Creative Industries and Cultural Heritage.
For the research community, GCH 2023 will provide an excellent scientific forum to exchange novel ideas and groundbreaking developments as well as to identify future research and application opportunities. For practitioners, GCH 2023 will provide a unique opportunity to feed into technical developments as well as to identify new techniques and ideas which can be transferred into practice.
