culture and computing



Culture and Computing is a new research area which aims to overcome different cultural issues in international communities using information and communication technologies (ICT). There are various research directions in the relations between culture and computing: to archive cultural heritages via ICT (cf. digital archives), to empower humanities researches via ICT (cf. digital humanities), to create art and expressions via ICT (cf. media art), to realize a culturally situated agent (cf. cultural agent), to support multi-language, multi-cultural societies via ICT (cf. intercultural collaboration), and to understand new cultures born in the Internet and Web (cf. net culture).

The International Conference on Culture and Computing provides an opportunity to share research issues and discuss the future of culture and computing, which was established in Kyoto, the cultural heart of Japan in 2010, and has been held once every two years in Kyoto, Japan since 2011. The conference is also held in even years when there is a voluntary host city (e.g., Culture and Computing 2012 in Hangzhou, China).

Culture and Computing 2017 will also be organized with an exhibition on the integration of state of the art cultural computing technologies and Japanese traditional culture, along with a number of organized sessions.

Culture and Computing 2017 was a great success!
The Conference attracted 102 participants from 22 countries. Enthusiastic and productive discussions were held for three days. We would like to send out special thanks to all the authors, reviewers, committee members and staffs, who made the conference possible.
