Call For Papers

The 17th EUROGRAPHICS Workshop on Graphics and Cultural Heritage (GCH 2019) aims to engage practitioners and researchers across the world working at the interface of novel digital technologies and cultural heritage. Taking place at the heart of the Balkans, in the city of Sarajevo this year’s event will explore the role of computer graphics and other digital technologies in safeguarding, preserving and providing access to cultural heritage which might be vulnerable from natural and man-made threats such as climate change, economic hardship, violence and neglect. As such, the event will enable participants to showcase and discuss new technologies and workflows available to heritage professionals to document, monitor, study, conserve/preserve and provide access to both tangible and intangible Cultural Heritage. Interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary approaches are particularly relevant to the event and this is reflected in the diversity of invited contributions.

For the research community, GCH 2019 provides an excellent scientific forum to exchange novel ideas and developments as well as to identify future research and application opportunities. For the practitioner community, GCH 2019 provides a unique opportunity to feed into technical developments as well as to identify new techniques and ideas which can be transferred into practice.

The event seeks different types of contributions including:
Research papers: original and innovative research (maximum 10 pages)
Short papers: update of ongoing research activities or projects (maximum 4 pages)
Posters: overview of activities (500 words abstract)
Tutorials of solutions available to the community
Special sessions on topics of interest to the workshop
Contributions are solicited (but not limited to) in the following topics:
Imaging techniques for Cultural Heritage processes, including visual analysis techniques such as 3D scanning, motion capture, multispectral imaging, X-ray, terahertz imaging, and other techniques allowing to record Cultural Heritage
Visual data processing and data fusion
Digital libraries, archiving and long-term preservation of 3D documents
Visual analysis of datasets, including semantic-aware representation of digital artefacts (metadata, classification schemes, annotation), similarity search and browsing
Visualization and virtual museums, including serious games and storytelling
Multi-modal and interactive environments
Spatial and mobile augmentation of physical collections with digital presentations
Digital fabrication, including subtractive and additive methods such as 3D printing
Organizational aspects of cooperation between ICT and CH experts for project development
Best practices and guidelines for deployment of ICT solution in the CH domain, including budgeting and maintenance
User demand and reception of ICT solutions in CH institutions
