International Conference on Cultural Heritage EUROMED 2014

The 1st International Workshop on Big Data in Digital Cultural Heritage will be held in Limassol (Cyprus), on November 3-8, 2014. It takes place in the context of the Euromed2014 international conference.

The digital cultural heritage community needs a forum to discuss current work and theoretical advances, and this new international workshop seeks to help to consolidate state-of-the-art research, provide a forum to discuss current experiences, and brainstorm future developments in the area. Being a new domain, it also requires an in-depth discussion on integrating aspects of big data in curricula in librarianship, information science, archival science and a range of Humanities disciplines.

The aim of this workshop is to combine all the innovative research concerning the big data in the following domains:

  • Cultural heritage objects and big data: aspects of capture, storage, sharing, and analysis
  • Visualisation of large digital cultural heritage collections
  • Curation of big cultural heritage collections
  • Searching big data: information retrieval and data mining
  • Natural language processing: statistical NPL in cultural heritage
  • Semantic web technologies and large scales of cultural data
  • Web intelligence
  • Cultural cloud
  • Issues of aggregation of vast resources
  • Distributed service architectures: SaaS, PaaS, IaaS
  • Big data economics and digital heritage
  • Evaluation, usability and use
  • Visualisation methods and tools
  • e-Infrastructures and large digital resources
  • Citizen science: the challenges of scale in engaging citizens
  • Educational aspects: how to introduce big data aspects in digital humanities and in Library and Information Science schools?
