    ACM Journal of Computing and Cultural Heritage

    ACM Journal on Computing and Cultural Heritage (JOCCH) publishes papers of significant and lasting value in all areas relating to the use of ICT in support of Cultural Heritage, including (but not limited to) the following areas:

    On-site and remotely sensed data collectionMetadata, classification schema, ontologies and semantic processingAnalytic tools to assist research on collections or artefactsDigital artefact capture, representation and manipulationICT assistance in monitoring and restorationIntelligent tools for digital reconstructionLong term preservation of digital artefactsProvenance, copyright and IPRStory-telling and other forms of communicationDigital capture and annotation of intangible heritage (performance, audio, dance, oral heritage)ICT technologies in support of creating new cultural experiences or digital artefactsAugmentation of physical collections with digital presentations Applications (e.g. in Education and Tourism)

    JOCCH seeks to combine the best of computing science with real attention to any aspect of the cultural heritage sector. Submissions are sought under two broad categories: Use-inspired Basic Research and Applied Research.

    Contributions under the Use-inspired Basic Research category describe results which push forward the bounds of knowledge in computing science and are grounded on evidence-based need from the cultural heritage sector.

    Applied Research contributions take state-of-the-art results from general computing science and apply them to real data from the cultural heritage sector – evidencing their effectiveness with reference to feedback from intended beneficiaries.

    The Cultural Heritage sector spans many distinct sub-areas, which may be divided into two major classifications:

    Tangible heritage, represented by the discovery, documentation, organisation, interpretation and communication of artefacts, monuments, sites, museums and collections (including digital archives, catalogues and libraries). Intangible heritage, represented by performance, stories, myth and mythology.

    At the interface between these two areas lies the area of historical and cultural interpretation. The increasing volume of digital cultural artefacts and collections is becoming an important body of heritage content in its own right. Finally the area of collections, their organisation and catalogue management and interrogation is also a valid topic for the journal.
