        Subject: CfP ARTIDIGH 2021 (special session: Artificial Intelligence & Digital Heritage: Challenges and Opportunities), deadline: 26 November 2020

Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to announce a call for papers for a special session on 
Artificial Intelligence & Digital Heritage: Challenges and Opportunities
(ARTIDIGH 2021).

The special session ARTIDIGH 2021 is a very small and specialized event to be
held during the 13th International Conference on Agents and Artificial
Intelligence (ICAART 2021) in Vienna, 4 - 6 February 2021. Our goal is to select
a consistent set of papers which provides the audience with a focused discussion
on the special session's theme. Papers can be submitted here:
http://www.icaart.org/ARTIDIGH.aspx. The deadline for paper submissions is 26
November 2020.

Scope of the special session:

With the help of artificial intelligence-powered services and tools the heritage
sector is working towards the next level of access to and (re)use of digitized
collections. In recent years libraries, archives and museums have started to
apply machine learning and advanced knowledge bases to contextually enrich
digitized objects, audio-visual content and texts and to make these retrievable
in novel ways. In doing so institutions aim to increase the impact of their
collections among a growing and diversifying audience. This special session
welcomes papers that reflect upon, discuss and present the technical and
societal challenges (e.g. labour to produce labeled datasets, heterogeneity of
data, bias in training sets) digital heritage professionals and researchers are
facing when trying to capitalise on the transformative power of artificial
intelligence in the context of digital archive, image, and audio/visual
collections. Next to position papers, we are also looking for papers in which
project consortia discuss their approach and present first results.

Topics include, but are not limited to:
* Bias and digital collections
* Dealing with uncertainty, quality issues and collection gaps
* Multimodal collection access
* Geographic/spatial enrichment and access
* New ways of accessing collections such as associative and serendipitous search
* Network analysis
* Natural Language Processing for the Heritage Domain
* Trend and change analysis
* Automatic collection provenance enrichment
* Reflections on the influence of AI on the heritage domain

Paper submission and publication:

After thorough reviewing by the special session program committee, all accepted
papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book
- under an ISBN reference and on digital support - and submitted for indexation
by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI/ISI), DBLP, EI
(Elsevier Engineering Village Index), Scopus, Semantic Scholar and Google
Scholar. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef and every paper is given a DOI
(Digital Object Identifier). All papers presented at the conference venue will
be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library.

Kind regards,
