Digital cultural heritage is now a mature field, in which information technologies are used in the service of preserving cultural heritage. The digital form of resources allows for the exploitation of advances in data analytics, semantics, information retrieval, user interaction, profiling and personalization in order to develop new, exciting and stimulating exhibitions and cultural/educational/touristic experiences.
For this special session we invite works that present and/or review the current state of the art in theory and practice, as well as promising recent advances, in the area of aligning the delivery process for cultural heritage content to the needs, goals, characteristics and preferences of individual users and user groups. The session is broad in scope, with the caveat that emphasis should be on the link between cultural heritage and personalization techniques.
