Workshop on Advances in Digital Cultural Heritage

PLUGGY co – organized the Workshop on Advances in Digital Cultural Heritage as part of the 23rd ICE/IEEE International Technology Management Conference that took place on the 27th, 28th and 29th June 2017, in Madeira Island – Portugal. The workshop provided an opportunity for PLUGGY to liaise with other leading projects and initiatives in the field, such as COST Action TD1406ViMMDARIAH-CY, INCEPTION, EuropeanaSHCity and ITN-DCH.

During the workshop, the authors of the accepted papers presented the recent advances in the cultural heritage domain on digitalisation and technological solutions to engage participation.

The PLUGGY consortium was represented by the Imperial College of London. A paper was presented on the core concept and relevance of PLUGGY in relation to the current literature and previous work done on distributed curation, personalisation and social media in cultural encounters. The paper further presents the user-centred design approach around the planned case studies, using an iterative design process and evaluation to validate our design choices.
