A workshop on Accessing Cultural Heritage at Scale is being organised by Professor Paul Clough and Paula Goodale of the Information School, along with colleagues Maristella Agosti (University of Padua, Italy) and Seamus Lawless (Trinity College Dublin, Ireland).
Focusing on information access issues in large-scale digital libraries and online collections in the cultural heritage domain, the workshop aims to bring together academics and practitioners from the fields of digital libraries, information retrieval, human-computer interaction, natural language processing, and other related areas. The workshop aims to investigate current work, state-of-the-art solutions and future research needs that enhance discovery, exploration and serendipity within these valuable digital resources.
A call for papers is available via the workshop web site http://achs.group.shef.ac.uk/, inviting full papers, short papers and posters, and the deadline for submissions is 18th April, 2016. The workshop will be held at the JCDL conference, 22-23 June 2016.
