Workshop on Serious Games and Cultural Heritage

Workshop on Serious Games and Cultural Heritage

In cooperation with the iMareCulture project, we are organizing a Workshop on Serious Games and Cultural Heritage in conjunction with the 9th International Conference on Virtual Worlds and Games for Serious Applications 2017.


The overall objectives of the workshop are the discussion and sharing of knowledge, and scientific and technical results, related to state-of-the-art solutions, technologies, and applications of serious games in cultural heritage, as well as the demonstration of serious games in cultural heritage. We believe the workshop will further enlarge the audience of this conference and thus keep improving the quality of the papers submitted. The nature of the workshop is multi-disciplinary, focusing on innovations in all the technology and application aspects of serious games and cultural heritage. The target audience is everyone in the general computer graphics and computer games research community with an interest in cultural heritage.
