Workshop MobileCH 2018

Call for Papers:


We are pleased to invite you to contribute to the Second Workshop on Mobile Access to Cultural Heritage(MobileCH 2018), to be held in Barcelona (Spain) on September 3rd 2018, in conjunction with Mobile HCI 2018 - the 20th International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction with Mobile Devices and Services.

Given the growing interest in Cultural Heritage (CH) and considering that 2018 has been declared the European Year of Cultural Heritage , but also following the successful workshop at Mobile HCI 2016, Mobile-CH 2018 will be again the meeting point between cultural heritage and personalization research – using any kind of mobile technology to enhance the personal experience in cultural heritage sites. The proposed workshop aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners who are working on various aspects of CH and are interested in exploring the potential of cutting-edge mobile technology (onsite as well as online) to enhance the CH visit experience. This include researchers, practitioners, and students from the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) area, as well as from the domains of CH and Humanities (including museums, archives, libraries, and more). We also expect to attract personalization researchers who want to explore this class of contexts. The expected result of the workshop is a multidisciplinary research agenda that will be based on recent research results, will define future research directions, and forge new research collaborations.

Any work which is at the same time relevant to the Mobile HCI 2018 general list of topics, and that is being applied to cultural heritage is relevant to the workshop. Specific topics of interest, when applied to cultural heritage include (but are not limited to):

    - Navigation and browsing in digital and physical cultural heritage collections

    - Recommendation strategies for CH

    - Adaptation strategies for text and non-verbal content in CH

    - NLG techniques for mobile user modeling in CH sites

    - Integration of virtual and physical collections

    - Ambient Cultural Heritage

    - Mobile museum guides & personal museum assistants

    - Context-aware information presentation in CH

    - Interactive user interfaces for CH applications

    - Personalization for group of visitors to CH sites
