Human-Computer Interaction, Tourism and Cultural Heritage ( HCITOCH 2019 )

Strategies for a Creative Future with Computer Science, Quality Design and Communicability

Florence, Italy , September 5 – 7, 2019

Introduction and Topics, Deadlines and Program Committee

1. Introduction and Topics

The new technologies offer us a series of instruments to develop the potential of human beings with the goal of increasing the quality of life of millions of users of interactive systems in our global village. The relation of the triad computer science, quality design and communicability has proven very productive in the new millennium.

In the current era of qualitative communication, the present virtual space is intended to be a meeting point of all those who freely wish to boost and perfect the set of strategies and techniques to improve the human-computer interaction, tourism and cultural heritage. The main goal is to facilitate communicability and make the fruition of the new technologies more pleasant.

Our effort focuses on finding the common denominator between the human-computer interaction, cultural heritage, tourism and the global village. That is, we address all those who are currently working to increase the quality of life of the human beings through the new technologies and all their derivations, wanting to know the last advances in the factual and formal sciences and that this international workshop can serve as a meeting point to boost the current and future lines of research of the investigators belonging to the university, governmental bodies and the enterprises and industries of the private sector. All contributions should be of high originality, quality, clarity, significance and impact.

Papers, demos, research-in-progress, posters, doctoral consortiums, didactic sessions, related to Computer Science, Human-Computer Interaction, Tourism, Cultural and Natural Heritage, Quality Design, Communicability, Internet of Things, Collaborative Environments for Natural and Cultural Heritage, Digitization for Conservation, Archaeological Archives with New Technologies, Motion Graphics and other Computational and Arts Areas are solicited on, but not limited to:
