Information For Contributors

ACM Journal on Computing and Cultural Heritage (JOCCH) publishes papers of significant and lasting value in all areas relating to the use of information and communication technologies (ICT) in support of Cultural Heritage. The journal encourages the submission of manuscripts that demonstrate new technology or innovative use of technology for the discovery, analysis, interpretation and presentation of cultural material, as well as manuscripts that illustrate applications in the Cultural Heritage sector that challenge the computational technologies and suggest new research opportunities in computer science.

The field Cultural Heritage spans many distinct sub-areas, which may be divided into two major classifications: tangible heritage, such as the discovery, documentation, organization, interpretation and communication of artifacts, monuments, sites, museums, and collections (including digital archives, catalogues and libraries); and intangible heritage, such as music, performance, storytelling, and mythology. In addition, the increasing volume of digital cultural artifacts and collections is becoming an important body of heritage content in its own right. Submissions that have led to actual cultural applications are particularly welcomed. Papers may be one of several types: research paper; tutorial/survey; software/algorithms; addendum/corrections; datasets.

Topics include:

  • On-site and remotely sensed data collection
  • Enhanced 2D media for CH
  • 3D digital artifact capture, representation and manipulation
  • Tools for reconstruction and processing of digital representations
  • Metadata, classification schema, ontologies and semantic processing for CH multimedia repositories
  • Analytic tools to assist scholars’ research on collections or artifacts
  • ICT assistance in monitoring and restoration
  • Augmentation of physical collections with digital presentations
  • Virtual and Augmented Reality technologies for virtual and digital museums
  • Human-Computer interfaces for virtual and digital museums
  • Story-telling and other forms of communication, multimedia systems
  • Serious games
  • Web-based and mobile technologies for CH
  • Long term preservation of digital artifacts
  • Provenance, copyright and IPR
  • Digital capture and annotation of intangible heritage (performance, audio, dance, oral heritage)
  • ICT technologies in support of creating new cultural experiences or digital artifacts
  • Applications (e.g. in Education and Tourism)
