Reaching out to our Time Machine community, we invite you to submit papers for the special session on Cultural Heritage and Multimedia Content, addressing the processing of all types of data related to cultural heritage.

As stated by UNESCO, cultural heritage provides societies with a wealth of resources inherited from the past and created in the present for the benefit of future generations. It includes tangible (built and natural environments, artefacts) and intangible (such as traditions, language, and knowledge) heritage. The objective of this session is to bring together the various communities and the latest research dedicated to cultural heritage data on different aspects, from their acquisition up to their restitution, including retrieval, structuring, interactions, interfaces, analysis, etc.

For various applications, in the session the organisers will address the presentation of generic methods and their application to cultural heritage, as well as dedicated approaches designed to deal with such content. Non-exhaustively, they will consider:

  • Content-based multimedia indexing and retrieval
  • Deep representations in adverse conditions
  • Generative models for cultural heritage
  • Ontology and semantic web for cultural heritage
  • Knowledge-driven machine learning
  • Multi-source and multimodal visualization
  • Spatio-temporal analysis
  • Large-scale multimedia database management
