Cultural informatics research and applications: State of the art and open challenges


The aim of this workshop is to bring together projects, research groups, stakeholders, independent researchers and practitioners who are active in the broader area of cultural informatics in order to present the current state of affairs, discuss open challenges faced by each one and explore possible collaborations. The ultimate goal is that tools, technologies, know-how, methods and best practices can be exchanged, thus significantly improving our efficiency and management/allocation of public and private resources.


The workshop is organized as a part of the EUROMED 2018 conference that will be held in Nicossia, Cyprus from October 29 to November 3, 2018.

Structure

The workshop comprises three segments, each one addressing a different goal.
  1. For the facilitation of collaboration, a focused meeting to document available expertise, discuss open challenges and seek complementarity and opportunities for cooperation.
  2. For scientific dissemination, short presentations in a typical conference setting (at EUROMED 2018).
  3. For public dissemination, an open exhibition in which each participant is invited to participate with a demo.

Submission and publication

Interested parties are invited to submit a paper describing the scope of their work, their current ongoing efforts, the tools and expertise they can share and the open challenges they face. Papers should be formatted following the Springer conference format and may range between 5 (minimum) and 10 (maximum) pages. It is desired that papers are structured using the following sections:
  1. Short description, providing an overview of the project or a brief presentation of the research group.
  2. Overview, providing a more detailed presentation of research effort.
  3. Partnership, describing the project's partners or the research team's members and how their expertise is combined to address the challenge.
  4. Lessons learned, listing interesting findings that are potentially useful to others.
  5. Open challenges, discussing questions that are still open and are identified as important for the continuation of the work.
  6. Tools, listing tools, libraries, data, etc that the project or research group makes available and might be of use to others. Please mention the type of licence under which sharing is possible.
Contributors are free to deviate from this structure, as necessary, to more thoroughly and fairly present their work.


Papers can be submitted via Easychair.


All submissions will be reviewed by the workshop's program committee. Accepted papers will be published independently of EUROMED 2018 via CEUR Workshop Proceedings (confirmation pending).


Given the complementarity of the thematic scopes, participants are encouraged to also submit a different, regular scientific paper for EUROMED 2018.
