Deadline of the Call for Paper Submission: 22, December 2011
Call for papers:

It has been a long history of Information Technology innovations
within the Cultural Heritage areas. The Performing arts have also been
enforced with a number of new innovations which unveil a range of
synergies and possibilities.  Most of the technologies and innovations
produced for digital libraries, media entertainment and education can
be exploited in the field of performing arts, with adaptation and
repurposing. Performing arts offer many interesting challenges and
opportunities for research and innovations and exploitation of cutting
edge research results from interdisciplinary areas. For these reasons,
the ECLAP 2012 Conference can be regarded as a continuation of past
conferences such as AXMEDIS and WEDELMUSIC (both pressed by IEEE and
FUP). ECLAP is a European Commission project to create a social
network and media access service for performing arts institutions in
Europe, to create the e-library of performing arts, exploiting
innovative solutions coming from the ICT.

The ECLAP 2012 conference is open to researchers, professionals,
industries, institutions, technicians and practitioners in the area of
performing arts and information technologies, media entertainment,
technology enhanced learning, intelligent media systems, acoustic
systems, cultural heritage, and many others. The ECLAP conference
should become a place where institutions, industries and European
Commission and Europeana projects in the areas of cultural heritage
can find a place to collaborate and present results. Thus, we invite
all the interested groups to organize a workshop/section into ECLAP
conference providing their proposal. Exhibition section offers
settings (booth and tables) to host demonstrators. Demo and poster
sections will be also organized.

The ECLAP 2012 conference is going to have a general track and a set
of workshops/sections and panels, and excellent keynote speakers.
