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.
