18th Eurographics Workshop on Graphics and Cultural Heritage. EG GCH2020

November 18-20 – ONLINE
EXTENDED DEADLINES  23-OCTOBER for all submissions

The 18th EUROGRAPHICS Workshop on Graphics and Cultural Heritage (GCH 2020) aims to engage practitioners and researchers across the world working at the interface of novel 3D digital technologies and cultural heritage. This year, EG GCH will be ONLINE, organized by the University of Granada.

GCH2020 welcomes presentations of projects and applications that demonstrate how computer graphics and other digital technologies could impact to cultural heritage. Hence, interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary approaches are particularly welcome to the event.

The event seeks different types of contributions including:

1. Research papers: original and innovative research (maximum 10 pages)
2. Short papers: update of ongoing research activities or projects (maximum 4 pages)
3. Posters: overview of activities (500 words abstract)
4. Special sessions on topics of interest to the workshop


Contributions are solicited (but not limited to) in the following topics:
● Digitisation of Cultural Heritage resources, such as 3D scanning, motion capture, multispectral imaging, X-ray, terahertz imaging
● Visual data analysis, processing and fusion
● Digital libraries, archiving and long-term preservation of 3D documents
● Visual data analysis and modelling, including semantic-aware representation of digital artefacts (metadata, classification schemes, annotation), similarity search and browsing
● Visualization and virtual museums, including serious games and storytelling
● Multi-modal and interactive environments
● Spatial and mobile augmentation of physical collections with digital presentations
● Digital fabrication, including subtractive and additive methods such as 3D printing
● Computer Graphics related technologies applied to sustainable tourism solutions.
