ACM Journal on Computing and Cultural Heritage – Special Issue on Digital Infrastructures for Cultural Heritage – Call for Papers.

The digital component is now pervasive in Cultural Heritage research and practice. From the pioneering and sporadic applications of the last quarter of the 20th century, it has grown to become essential for any CH investigation or management project. This development has led to the creation of a new interdisciplinary domain, the so-called Digital Heritage sector, and the need to support, structure, and manage the use of facilities, resources, services and applications no less than in other research domains, producing long-lasting infrastructures.

Accepted papers will not only need to present innovative computer science content but also refer to a clear Cultural Heritage context where they have been or are going to be, tested and evaluated. They should address a comprehensive framework – the infrastructure – rather than an individual application unless the latter is the backbone of an infrastructure.

Deadline 1st April 2016. Further details can be found here.
