Following two successful SCCH conferences in 2007 and 2009, the Interdisciplinary Center for Scientific Computing at Heidelberg University invites authors and guests to the 3rd SCCH workshop in Heidelberg, Germany.

This time, the summer in Heidelberg will be packed with conferences as the university celebrates its 625th anniversary. We join this program and decided to choose three days in July to have a conference on this highly interdisciplinary topic.

In cooperation with the Academy of Science, Baden Wurttemberg and endorsed by the German Excellency Initiative and the Heidelberg Graduate School (HGS), this workshop again focuses on topics of computational and mathematical modeling in application areas of cultural heritage. This emerging new scientific area covers a variety of disciplines.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • 2D/3D reconstruction and modeling
  • Reassembly of artifacts from fragments
  • Fully and semi-automated systems for Epigraphy
  • Archaeography (analysis of historical documents)
  • Computer Vision applications in Cultural Heritage
  • Volume-based analysis and visualizations/Computer Tomography
  • Infrared and Spectral imaging and analysis
  • Advanced technical tools for experts in the field of cultural heritage
  • Museum applications
  • Presentation of cultural content with multimedia tools
  • Design methods for cultural heritage documentation systems and components
  • Archaeological applications
  • Shape representation for free-form modeling (statues, bones, etc.)
  • Excavation's historical documentation from multimedia data

Paper Submission

Prospective authors are invited to contribute to the conference by electronically submitting an extended Abstract of 1-2 A4 pages (PDF) with or without one illustration. Each abstract and in case of acceptance each paper will be reviewed by two members of the program committee. The contributions to SCCH’11 will be published by the Springer-Verlag and on CD-ROM. Even accepted by reviewers, the publication of papers in the printed book requires a presentation (oral or poster) and the acceptance of the scientific board.

Please remark that in order to improve paper preparation and the editing of the printed proceedings, SCCH 2011 uses the EasyChair system. Authors have to register with EasyChair first. After registration, use the link http://www.easychair.org/account/signin.cgi?conf=scch2011

Best Student Paper Award

The Best Student Paper Award will be given to the author of the best paper written solely or primarily by a student appearing in the workshop proceedings. The award includes a plaque and a prize to the student author. Students at all levels are invited to submit papers, however all papers submitted should be original manuscripts (not previously published) and should not be submitted to other publications or groups while they are being considered for the best student paper. The paper must be presented by the student (or students) to be eligible for the award.
