Call for Papers

International Conference on Culture and Computing (Culture and Computing 2015)

Date: October 17-19, 2015

Venue: The Clock Tower Centennial Hall, Kyoto University, Japan


Culture and Computing is a new research area which aims to overcome different cultural issues in international communities using information and communication technologies (ICT). There are various research directions in the relations between culture and computing: to archive cultural heritages via ICT (cf. digital archives), to empower humanities researches via ICT (cf. digital humanities), to create art and expressions via ICT (cf. media art), to realize a culturally situated agent (cf. cultural agent), to support multi-language, multi-cultural societies via ICT (cf. intercultural collaboration), and to understand new cultures born in the Internet and Web (cf. net culture).

The International Conference on Culture and Computing provides an opportunity to share research issues and discuss the future of culture and computing, which was established in Kyoto, the cultural heart of Japan in 2010, and has been held once every two years in Kyoto, Japan since 2011. The conference is also held in even years when there is a voluntary host city (e.g., Culture and Computing 2012 in Hangzhou, China). 

Culture and Computing 2015 will also be organized with an exhibition on the integration of state of the art cultural computing technologies and Japanese traditional culture, along with organized sessions, poster sessions and demonstrations. There will be a performance of Kyogen (a form of traditional Japanese comic theater) in social events. Especially we are also proud to announce the keynote talk and the invited talk in Culture and Computing 2015 as shown below.

Keynote Talk: Music cultures opened up by music technologies (Dr. Masataka Goto, National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), Japan)

Invited Talk: Antoni Gaudí and his role in forming a traditional craft - digital culture continuum (Professor Mark Burry, Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning, University of Melbourne, Australia)

We invite submission to a wide range of venues including papers, posters, and demos. Submissions are solicited on any aspect on the intersection of culture and computing, but are expected to be suitable for a multidisciplinary audience. In Culture and Computing 2015, we especially encourage submissions on three topics: culture and computing for Tokyo Olympics, open data for culture and computing, and culture in social network. Other examples of suitable submission topics include:

- Archiving cultural heritages

- Information environments for humanity studies

- Art and design by information technologies

- Digital storytelling

- Intercultural communication and collaboration

- Culturally situated agents and simulations

- Game and culture

- Analysis of new culture in the Internet and Web

- Culture and brain science

- VR (virtual reality) application for culture

- Digital libraries for cultural materials

- Sound archiving of intangible cultural properties

- Digital humanities

- Culture based media art & music
