Call for Papers

You are cordially invited to contribute to the 22nd EUROGRAPHICS Workshop on Graphics and Cultural Heritage (GCH).

GCH 2024 welcomes presentations of new research, projects, demonstrations and applications that demonstrate how computer graphics and other digital technologies are impacting Cultural Heritage (CH) research, preservation and dissemination and promoting sustainable cultural tourism. Specific sessions will be organised to seek new challenges and projects involving different stakeholders of the Heritage ecosystem. Hence, interdisciplinary, and multidisciplinary approaches are particularly welcome to the event.

The event aims to engage with practitioners and researchers across the world working at novel digital technologies and approaches to CH. This year, the workshop is organized in Darmstadt (Germany) from 16th – 18th September 2024 and will take place in the Hessian Landesmuseum.

The objective of this year’s EG GCH is to foster discussion between research scientists at the crossroads of AIComputer VisionComputer GraphicsHCI design, and Digital Heritage researchers, in a collaborative environment with cultural institutionsscholars in the Cultural Heritage domain and Creative Industries.

We encourage the community to participate in the discussions on promises and concerns about the adoption of AI and reconstruction technologies by scientists and practitioners in the field of Creative Industries and CH.

For the research community, GCH 2024 will provide an excellent scientific forum to exchange novel ideas and groundbreaking developments as well as to identify future research opportunities. For practitioners and students, GCH 2024 will provide a unique opportunity to feed into technical developments as well as to identify new techniques and ideas which can be transferred into practice.

Like last year, GCH is establishing agreements with leading journals (ACM JOOCH, Elsevier DAACH, MDPI Heritage, etc.) and invites authors to submit work with highly innovative research results.

ACM JOCCH‘s Special Issue on “Visual Heritage” focuses on novel computing research for documenting, accessing and researching cultural heritage, including areas of computer graphics, computer vision, artificial intelligence, visualisation, human-computer interfaces, and other visual technologies. Short versions of these papers will be included in the EG proceedings, while the Special Issue will be published by December 2024. Authors may find this call at: https://dl.acm.org/journal/JOCCH/visualheritage.

Elsevier DAACH Special Issue on “Digital Restoration for Cultural Heritage Preservation” focuses on applications, design and advancements in 3D digitization, digital restoration, and visualization techniques specifically tailored for the preservation of cultural heritage. Authors can find the call and further details at: https://www.sciencedirect.com/journal/digital-applications-in-archaeology-and-cultural-heritage/about/call-for-papers#digital-restoration-for-cultural-heritage-preservation
