ICHIM07 - International Cultural Heritage Informatics Meeting
digital culture and heritage
Toronto, October 24-26, 2007

ICHIM07 Papers are now on-line

The first group of papers to be presented at the International
Cultural Heritage
Informatics Meeting are now on-line. See the full list at

But conferences aren't about people reading papers. They are about
seeing first hand the diversity of work being done, having
conversations and asking questions. So plan to join us in Toronto
for some stimulating discussions and debates.

Closing Plenary: Ranjiit Makkuni on the Eternal Gandhi

Ranjit Makkuni, of the Sacred World Foundation, India, will speak
about the making
of the Eternal Gandhi Multimedia Museum. He will present a language of physical
   interface actions derived from classical symbols of the spinning wheel,
   turning of the prayer wheels, touching symbolic pillars, the act of hands
   touching sacred objects, collaboratively constructed quilts, sacred chanting
in the collective group, the satsanga and the touching and rotating of prayer
   beads. These tradition-based interactions inspire a rich panorama of tactile
   interfaces that allow people to access the multimedia imagery and
multidimensional mind of Gandhiji.

Eternal Ghandi was a winner of ID Magazine Design Award in 2006.
