Call for Papers: Deadline April 11, 2003

Since 1991 the best in interactive multimedia have met biennially to
examine the relationships between technology and cultural heritage.
If you are making multimedia to interpret primary resources, using
the technology to expand your audience, reconstructing history
virtually, publishing digital culture or researching cultural
heritage informatics, ichim03 is the venue for you.

ichim03 Cultural Institutions and Digital Technology will address the
fundamental issues in the creation and dissemination of virtual
scientific and cultural heritage, education and research, and digital
artistic creations. Two pre-conference days will offer exclusive
seminars and workshops for advanced training. They will be followed
by three days of papers, panels, presentations, debates and
demonstrations. Curators, computer scientists, administrators,
publishers, educators, entrepreneurs and artists from around the
world will come to share their experiences, learn new methods and
forge new partnerships.

Conference Themes

Presentations will discuss five major themes:

    1. The political, economic, legal and technical frameworks for
cultural institutions and digital publishing in a digital age.

    2. Management and technological strategies for digitization of
cultural heritage (state of the art, exemplary applications,
presentation and audit of projects, issues of skills and training);

    3. Dissemination, exploitation and enrichment of digital assets
(from scientific Intranet systems to popularization Web-television
channels and digital libraries: practical, technical and critical
approaches, best practices and experiments);

    4. Museum and interactive exhibitions (from nomadic devices to
immersive installations and virtual galleries: case study, evaluation
of the public assessment, theory and research);

    5. Digital art and the contemporary creation of a digital culture
(Curation, preservation, exhibition, performance, dissemination,
critique, and curriculum ).

Parallel to the conference, we anticipate the presentations of
experimental projects by cultural institutions, private and
government programs in search of partners, and demonstrations of
commercial products and services intended for cultural heritage
institutions and the popular cultural heritage market.

Working languages of the conference will be French and English.
