Call for papers

DigitalHeritage is the international event for those working on information technology for heritage. A "federated" world congress of the leading international societies, organizations, and events around IT for heritage, Digital Heritage 2015 will bring together for the second time, VSMM, Eurographics GCH, Arqueologica 2.0, Archaeovirtual, and special events from CAA, CIPA, Space2Place, ICOMOS ICIP, and more, all in one venue with a prestigious joint publication. A groundbreaking public display of cutting edge digital heritage projects will also grace the conference venue at Granada's Alhambra and Sciences Park museum.
Following the successful format of the first DigitalHeritage in 2013, the conference will have a single call for papers and a coordinated scientific review process across all the federating events.


We are seeking original, innovative and previously unpublished contributions in theoretical or applied Digital Heritage areas. All papers will be double-blind peer-reviewed by at minimum 3 referees from the International Scientific Committee. Every submission will have at least one technical and one cultural reviewer to ensure a rich diversity of accepted works spanning both technology and the humanities. All submissions will be reviewed for originality, significance, clarity, impact, and soundness.
Since this is a joint World Congress, you need to submit only once to be considered for the integrated joint proceedings of all affiliated events. We remind that we will have a single review process and publication.

Digital Heritage 2015 is composed of a number of parallel tracks, including full and short papers, special sessions (tutorials, workshops and panels), exhibitions, and special events.


Visual Material

Paper submissions, Applications, Exhibitions & Showcases are encouraged to submit visual materials, promotional videos or multimedia presentations that demonstrate and describe the results of the scientific work, project, or exhibitor showcase. Visual Materials will be required by the scientific committee for the selection of the best working results to be awarded. A dedicated upload area will be provided for final paper submission.

· Full (8-page properly formatted paper submitted via EasyChair)
