==Aims==
Accessing Cultural Heritage at Scale is a workshop collocated at the JCDL 2016 conference, to be held in Newark, NJ, USA. The workshop will take place over two half days on 22-23 June 2016.

Our focus is on challenges and opportunities, current and emerging developments in the area of information access via exploration and discovery in large-scale digital libraries and collections, particularly in the cultural heritage domain. We will consider the underlying technologies which enable this access, as well as interaction functionalities, and user evaluations. Our goal is to identify the needs of providers and their users, assess the current state-of-the-art, and to identify challenges and prioritize areas of future research potential.

==Topics==
The workshop is focused on all aspects of supporting access, exploration and discovery within large-scale digital libraries, especially within cultural heritage. This fits with the JCDL conference theme of 'Big Libraries, Big Data, Big Innovation' to include information access issues and solutions in cultural heritage that focus on volume, variety and velocity of library content, and also variety (complexity, diversity) of users and uses. Specifically, we invite contributions on related topics including (but not limited to):

* Information discovery, exploration and serendipity
* User-centered information access and evaluation
* Multimedia, multilingual and exploratory Information Retrieval
* Information needs and information behaviour
* Information organization, ontologies
* Entity-centric information access
* Information extraction, content enrichment, text analytics, natural language processing
* Entity-extraction and disambiguation
* Metadata and linked data
* Visualization of information space
* User modelling and adaptation
* Personalization and recommendation

Contributions may include findings from completed empirical studies or work-in-progress, as well as position papers inviting discussions of emerging and future developments.

==Submissions==
Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished academic research, industry papers and position papers related to the topics listed above. We invite papers in 3 formats:

* full papers (8 pages)
* short papers (4 pages)
* posters (2 pages)

Full papers will report on completed work, or work that has reached a level of maturity or important milestone. Short papers and posters will report on work-in-progress, or work that can be presented in a more concise form. Position papers are welcome in either full or short paper format.
Full and short papers will be presented in the main the workshop track, and posters will be presented in a dedicated session. All paper types are welcome from both academics and practitioners. Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings. Proceedings will be published immediately prior to the workshop via CEUR Workshop Proceedings.

All papers should be written in English, prepared anonymously in the ACM Proceedings template, and submitted in PDF format, via the workshop EasyChair submission page: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=achs20160.
