DigitalHeritage is the international event for those working on information technology for heritage. A "federated" world congress of the leading international societies, organizations, and events around IT for heritage, DigitalHeritage 2015 will bring together for the second time, VSMM, Eurographics GCH, Arqueológica 2.0, Archaeovirtual, and special events from CAA, CIPA, Space2Place, ICOMOS ICIP, and more, all in one venue with a prestigious joint publication. A groundbreaking public display of cutting edge digital heritage projects will also grace the conference venue at Granada's Alhambra and Parque de las Ciencias.   Following the successful format of the first DigitalHeritage in 2013, the conference will have a single call for papers and a coordinated scientific review process across all the federating events.

We are seeking original, innovative and previously unpublished contributions in theoretical or applied Digital Heritage areas. All papers will be double-blind peer-reviewed by at minimum 3 referees from the International Scientific Committee. Every submission will have at least one technical and one cultural reviewer to ensure a rich diversity of accepted works spanning both technology and the humanities. All submissions will be reviewed for originality, significance, clarity, impact, and soundness. 
Since this is a joint World Congress, you need to submit only once to be considered for the integrated joint proceedings of all affiliated events. We remind that we will have a single review process and publication.

Each submission shall indicate the specific Digital Heritage 2015 Theme that is more relevant (see bellow the definition of the five planned Themes). 

Digital Heritage 2015 is composed of a number of parallel tracks, including full and short papers, special sessions (tutorials, workshops and panels), exhibitions, and special events.


You may submit to participate in DigitalHeritage in one of several ways:

Full (8-page properly formatted paper via EasyChair) 
Short (4-page properly formatted paper via EasyChair). Short papers can be presented as oral presentations or posters.
Note that papers not considered ready for full publication may be redirected as posters.

Workshop/Tutorial/Panel (up to 4-page overview  via EasyChair)

Exhibit (up to 4-page overview  via EasyChair)

See the following sections for submission details and deadlines.


All submissions will need to be submitted by means of EasyChair that is accessible through



Submitted manuscripts should not exceed 8 pages for long papers (including figures, tables and references) and 4 pages for short paper presentations. Authors should select a single scientific Theme for each submission. 

The two best papers on each theme will be invited to submit an extended version of the paper to a an International Journal including:
ACM Journ. on Computing and Cultural Heritage - JOCCH (http://jocch.acm.org/):
Journal of Cultural Heritage (Elsevier, http://www.journals.elsevier.com/journal-of-cultural-heritage/):
Journ. Digital Application in Cultural Heritage (Elsevier, http://www.journals.elsevier.com/digital-applications-in-archaeology-and-cultural-heritage/)

Short papers will be presented at the event with either an oral presentation or by means of a poster or e-posters presentation. Authors of  short paper should indicate the preferred way of presentation (Oral or Poster). 

As the conference adopts a double-blind reviewing process, authors must ensure that any information that links authors or co-authors, e.g. affiliations, contact details, e-mails, to the paper are removed on the paper for the first submission step. Registration details on easyChair should remain at place 
The full and short papers must be formatted in IEEE double column, single space format, A4 page. The word style or the LaTeX template can be downloaded from the IEEE site.


Special Sessions will include:Tutorials, Workshops and Panels

For a Special Session proposal to be considered for acceptance at Digital Heritage 2015, the proposed topic needs to be a presentation of teaching objectives (tutorials), contributions to the state-of-the-art, new initiatives or an emerging area in one of the core themes of the conference. The topic should be timely and significantly important to the audience, and the speakers need to convey compelling information about it.

Tutorials should be planned as half-day or full-day, at introductory, intermediate or advanced levels, and could cover any theme among the entire spectrum of topics of the Conference. They could focus vertically on technology, or could demonstrate its potential for creative applications. Tutorials are intended to show what can be done, but even more importantly, how this is done and what kind of tools can be used to do it. While proposing a tutorial, authors should consider that tutorial attendees come from diverse backgrounds, ranging from research and development to education, curatorship and applications.

Proposals for Workshops and Panels will be judged by the ability to bring together key researchers from the CH as well as ICT domains, aiming at introducing a new area to the overall community, to further develop it, and to help establishing a larger research community beyond that area. Special session proposals covering multi-disciplinary areas are particularly encouraged, as well as those proposals regarding common challenges, e.g. (and not restricted to) Methods in Archaeology, Museums and Technology, etc.

Special Session submissions  (up to 4 A4-pages) should contain the following information:
A title and brief description of the content or topic and its relevance to the DH community (not more than 1,500 words);
Full contact information for all tutorial instructors or workshop leaders, including a one-paragraph statement of their research interests and areas of expertise;
A short CV for each presenter, participant or authors who have agreed to participate with their results to the session
A description of target audience and expected number of participants (based, if possible, on past experience);
Any special requirements for technical support.
Additionally, Tutorial proposals should include:
A brief outline showing that the core content can be covered in a half day (approximately 3 hours, plus breaks). In exceptional cases, full-day tutorials may be supported as well.
Workshop proposals must include:
The intended length and format of the workshop and the forecasted number of attendees;
A proposed budget (as DH workshops are expected to be self-financing).

The community is invited to submit proposals for installations, applications, digital artworks, or technical demos to build up the Digital Heritage Expo at DH2015. During this important international event, dedicated spaces for Virtual Archaeology, Virtual Museums and Digital Art will provide an additional forum to showcase project results and present applications. Spaces will be provided by the Science Museum and will be accessible and open not only to the conference participants but to also to the public. Best showcases and projects will be selected by the scientific committee, and will be assigned space and visibility within the exhibition area. Applications and artworks must be finished and submitted by the deadlines defined in this call. Submissions should not exceed 4 A4-pages (including images, references, etc.) addressing the scope of the exhibition themes and highlight innovation (cultural/technological), impact (cognitive, artistic, communicative), novelty of the approach, and typology of the 
installation/application, of the contents and of the interactive system. Submissions might be complemented by supplementary visual material.


Paper submissions, Applications, Exhibitions & Showcases are encouraged to submit visual materials, promotional videos or multimedia presentations that demonstrate and describe the results of the scientific work, project, or exhibitor showcase. Visual Materials will be required by the scientific committee for the selection of the best working results to be awarded. A dedicated upload area will be provided for final paper submission.


Submissions will be administratively rejected without review if it is found that:
1. The submission violates the IEEE & EG Policy and Procedures on Plagiarism.
2. The submission is a dual submission; that is, if the submission is simultaneously under review for any other conference or publication.
3. Electronic files have been submitted that have been designed to have side effects other than presenting the submitted work to reviewers and committee members (for example, a "phone home" script).
4. It appears that the paper contains material for which the submitters have not secured the necessary copyrights.
