IEEE Intelligent Systems
Special issue on AI and Cultural Heritage

http://www.computer.org/portal/pages/intelligent/content/CulHerCFP.html

Cultural heritage is transforming as fast as the digital age. While once
we collected objects such as books, sculptures, statues, and paintings,
we now also face the preservation and archival of digital artifacts.
These might be digital representations of physical objects or digital
creations, such as interactive works of art, blogs, or even the World
Wide Web itself, that are in their own right culturally significant and
worthy of preservation.

This special issue seeks to explore the problems and solutions of
cultural heritage in the digital age. To what extent can computers, and
particularly knowledge-based technologies, facilitate the processes of
authentication, preservation, and archiving of physical and digital
artifacts?

Topics for which we invite submissions include, but aren’t limited to,
these:

* Knowledge representations and reasoning — for example,

—    combining heterogeneous collections;
—    integration or evolution of vocabularies, metadata schemas,
      and ontologies;
—    syntactic and semantic interoperability issues;
—    reasoning strategies (for example, context, temporal, or spatial);
      and
—    novel applications of the Cidoc Conceptual Reference Model (CRM),
      SKOS, and VRA

* Intelligent interface support for professional and lay users,
      for example:

—    annotating digital (representations of) artifacts,
—    techniques for exploring and interacting with repositories of
      digital (representations of) artifacts,
—    trust and provenance issues,
—    personalization issues, and
—    integration of semantics with audiovisual media.

* Feature detection techniques for analyzing digital artifacts,
      for example:

—    determining physical artifacts’ authenticity (handwriting or
      brushstroke recognition, x-ray analysis, and so on),
—    automatic creation of annotations,
—    automatic ontology extraction from collections, and
—    use of machine learning and natural language processing techniques.

However, all submissions must contain some form of knowledge-based
technologies (including the Semantic Web) and directly involve some
aspect of cultural heritage.
Important Dates

     * Submissions due for review: 15 Aug. 2008
     * Notification of acceptance: 17 Dec. 2008
     * Final version submitted:    29 Dec. 2008
     * Issue publication:             Mar. 2009

Submission Guidelines

Submissions should be 3,000 to 7,500 words (counting a standard figure
or table as 200 words) and should follow the magazine’s style and
presentation guidelines (see
