Call for Papers - SUMAC 2023

5th ACM International workshop on analysis, understanding and promotion of heritage contents
- Advances in machine learning, signal processing, multimodal techniques and human-machine interaction

In conjunction with ACM Multimedia 2023

29 Oct - 3 Nov, 2023
Ottawa, Canada

Aims and scope:
The ambition of SUMAC is to bring together researchers and practitioners from different disciplines to share ideas and methods on current trends in the analysis, understanding and promotion of heritage contents. These challenges are reflected in the corresponding sub-fields of machine learning, signal processing, multi-modal techniques and human-machine interaction. We welcome research contributions for the following (but not limited to) topics:

# Information retrieval for multimedia heritage
# Automated archaeology and heritage data processing
# Multi-modal deep learning and time series analysis for heritage data
# Heritage modeling, visualization, and virtualization
# Smart digitization and reconstruction of heritage data
# Open heritage data and bench-marking

The scope of targeted applications is extensive and includes:

# Analysis, archaeometry of artifacts
# Diagnosis and monitoring for restoration and preventive conservation
# Geosciences / geomatics for cultural heritage
# Education
# Smart and sustainable tourism
# Urban planning
# Digital Twins

Special Highlights:

# Best Paper Award
Following tradition, SUMAC 2023 will also be awarding a best paper award, accompanied with a certificate and a trophy.

# Journal Special Issue
Authors of the best papers from SUMAC 2023 will be invited to submit an extended and improved version for consideration for a special issue on cultural heritage in the Springer journal “Multimedia Tools and Applications”.

Submission guidelines:

# Submission format
All submissions must be original work not under review at any other workshop, conference, or journal. The workshop will accept papers describing completed work as well as work in progress. One submission format is accepted: full paper, which must follow the formatting guidelines of the main conference ACM MM 2023. Full papers should be from 6 to 8 pages (plus 2 additional pages for the references), encoded as PDF and using the ACM Article Template. For paper guidelines, please visit

# Peer Review and publication in ACM Digital Library
Paper submissions must conform with the “double-blind” review policy. All papers will be peer-reviewed by experts in the field, they will receive at least two reviews. Acceptance will be based on relevance to the workshop, scientific novelty, and technical quality. Depending on the number, maturity and topics of the accepted submissions, the work will be presented via oral or poster sessions. The workshop papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library.
