9th International Workshop on Human-Computer Interaction, Tourism and Cultural Heritage (HCITOCH 2018): Strategies for a Creative Future with Computer Science, Quality Design and Communicability
Genoa, Italy
19 – 21 September, 2018

HCITOCH 2018 will be composed of research presentations, keynote lectures, invited presentations, doctoral consortium, demos, research-in-progress, poster presentations, and parallel sessions.

All contributions –papers, workshops, demos, doctoral consortium, research-in-progress, etc., should be of high quality, originality, clarity, significance and impact. In the current international symposium/conference it is demonstrated how with a correct integration among professionals of formal and factual sciences interesting research lines in the following subjects: Computer Science, Human-Computer Interaction, Tourism, Cultural Heritage, Quality Design, Communicability, Internet of Things, Ubiquitous Computing, Collaborative Environments for Natural and Cultural Heritage, Digitization for Conservation, Archaeological Archives with New Technologies and other Computational and Arts Areas are solicited on, but not limited to: (alphabetical order):

An extensive listing connotes and reflects the requirement and also skill necessary to find intersection zones of the disciplines among the different domains, fields, and specialities; which at the same time potentially boosts and merges the formerly different scientific views.

All submitted papers, demos, posters, etc., will be reviewed by a double-blind (at least three reviewers), non-blind, and participative peer review. These three kinds of review will support the selection process of those that will be accepted for their presentation at the international conference. Authors of accepted contributions who registered in the conference can have access to the evaluations and possible feedback provided by the reviewers who recommended the acceptance of their papers, so they can accordingly improve the final version of their works.


  • Works Submissions: Open. Consequently, as they are received, they will be evaluated. It is a way to speed up the process to make up the final program of the international workshop. In other words, it is not necessary to wait until the deadline to send them for the evaluation.
