VICTA: Visions on Internet of Cultural Things and Applications – workshop at SITIS conference 2015


The international workshop on Visions on Internet of Cultural Things and Applications (VICTA) is part of the 11th International Conference on Signal Image Technology & Internet Based Systems (SITIS 2015), being held in Bangkok, Thailand, on 23-27 November 2015.

The 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.
The combination of the Internet and emerging technologies such as near-field and BLE communications, real-time localisation and embedded sensors lets us transform everyday objects into smart objects that can understand and react to their environment.
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 characterises a domain where several aspects have to be considered at the same time.
In line with SITIS’ tradition of promoting interdisciplinary research, the international workshop on Visions on Internet of Cultural Things and Applications, VICTA 2015, aims to be a profitable informal working day to discuss together hot topics about Internet of Things and its applications to Cultural Heritage.
This second edition of VICTA will be organised by DATABENC, the high technology
district for Cultural Heritage in Campania Region, Italy.

SITIS 2015All the papers accepted for the workshop will be included in the conference proceedings. The proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society.
Contents will be submitted to the indexing companies for possible indexing. They will be available at the conference.
