VSMM 2008 Call for Papers 

Digital Heritage: Our Hi-tech-STORY for the Future 

Technologies to Document, Preserve, Communicate, and Prevent the 
Destruction of our Fragile Cultural Heritage October 20. - 26th, 2008 
Cyprus 

http://www.vsmm2008.org 

You are kindly invited to submit a paper to the VSMM 2008 joint conference 
which will provide an opportunity to exchange research results, opinions, 
experiences and proposals on the best practice and hi-tech tools from 
Information and Communications Technology to document, preserve, manage 
and communicate Cultural Heritage (CH). The main goal of the event is not 
only to illustrate the programs underway but also excellent work wherever 
it is located and however it is supported, in order to promote a common 
approach to the tasks of e- documentation of World Cultural Heritage. 
Furthermore, regional capacities in the area of Cultural Heritage and IT 
will be facilitated in advancing their know-how through the exchange of 
information and generation of new ideas and cooperation's, where the world 
meets the finger prints of several ancient civilizations on earth. 

To reach this ambitious goal the topics covered will include experiences 
in the use of innovative recording technologies & methods and how to take 
best advantage to integrate the results obtained to build up new tools 
and/or experiences as well as improved methodologies for documenting, 
managing and communicating CH. 

The VSMM 2008 joint event will focus on interdisciplinary and multi- 
disciplinary research concerning both cutting edge Cultural Heritage 
Informatics and use of technology for the representation, documentation, 
preservation, archiving and communication of CH knowledge. The scope 
includes every phase of CH information technology: initial data 
capture/digitization, information/data processing, reconstruction, 
visualization and documentation as well as dissemination of results to the 
scientific and cultural heritage communities and to the general public 
(Multilingua, Multimedia Digital Library). We are also interested in 
aspects of the wider legal and ethical responsibilities of Cultural 
Heritage Informatics. Research subjects parallel the interests of VSMM, 
CIPA, ISPRS and EuroMed including culturally significant monuments, 
artefacts and sites as well as the activities of museums, libraries, 
archives, and organizations involved with their care. 

Topics: Those researchers who wish to participate in this event are 
invited to submit papers on original and unpublished work addressing the 
following subjects: . Data Acquisition Technologies focusing on
