Computer Vision plays an important role in cultural heritage applications. This workshop on e-Heritage aims to bring together Computer Vision researchers as well as interdisciplinary researcher in the research fields of Computer Graphics, Virtual Reality, and also Archaeology, Art Historian etc.
World cultural heritage is not limited to sites; it includes Music, Languages, Dances, and Customs that are fast becoming extinct as the world moves toward a global village. These cultural heritages also face the danger of time, theft, and destruction by fire and war.
One of the best ways to preserve and make accessible such heritages is to obtain digital data of such heritages. Recent advancement of computer vision techniques enables us to obtain 2D/3D digital data of the heritages. Once these digital data have been acquired, they can record the current state of heritages permanently and then safely passed down to future generations for display when necessary. In addition, such digital data is suitable for many applications, including simulation and restoration. Multimedia contents of heritages can also be obtained from digital data and such digital contents can be viewed through the internet from anywhere in the world, without moving the objects nor visiting the sites.
In this workshop, we strongly encourage interdisciplinary papers and would like to keep a wide scope. However, due to the potentially very large scope and in order to align the workshop with ACCV audience we will require that all papers:
The workshop is supported by IAPR TC-19.
