SCOPE

Cultural Heritage (CH), both tangible and intangible, is a beacon that draws millions every year to cultural heritage sites, museums and libraries, as well as to concert halls, folklore festivals and other festivities. As such, it is both the accumulation of past artistic achievements and the expression of continuing tradition and creativity. It is also a dynamic trigger of economic activities and jobs, reinforcing the social and territorial cohesion. Recent technological advances facilitate digitization, documentation, archival, visualization and re-use of cultural heritage to produce new exciting services and applications. The aim of this special session is to explore such Computer Vision, Imaging and Computer Graphics techniques, tools and applications for capture, archival and valorization of both tangible and intangible heritage.
