International Workshop on Visions on Internet of Cultural Things and Applications (VICTA'14)

Scope of the Workshop
victa14_featuredThe adoption of Future Internet (FI) technology, and in particular of its most challenging components like the Internet of Things (IoT) and Internet of Services (IoS), can constitute the basic building blocks to progress towards unified ICT platforms for a variety of applications within the large framework of smart cities. In the last years, Cultural Heritage has turned out to be one of the most suitable domains in which such achievements can be profitably exploited, since it characterizes a domain where several aspects have to be considered at the same time. Indeed, it represents a worldwide resource of inestimable value, attracting millions of visitors every year to monuments, and museum and therefore a fundamental aspect of this resource is represented by its fruition, valorization and safeguard.
In line with SITIS tradition of promoting interdisciplinary research, the international workshop on Visions on Internet of Cultural Things and Applications, VICTA'14, aims to be a profitable informal working day to discuss together hot topics about Internet of Things and its applications to Cultural Heritage.
This first edition will be organized by DATABENC, the high technology district for Cultural Heritage in Regione Campania, ITALY.

Topics for the workshop include, but are not limited to:

  • Internet of Things

  • Multimedia applications and services

  • Multimedia recommendations and User profiling techniques

  • Interactive 3D media and immersive environments

  • Data in social networks

  • Semantic-Web data

  • Big Data Analytics
