Culture and Computing is an important research area which aims to address the human-centred design of interactive technologies for the production, curation, preservation and fruition of cultural heritage, as well as developing and shaping future cultures.

There are various research directions in the relations between culture and computing:

  • to preserve, disseminate and create cultural heritages via ICT (cf. digital archives)
  • to empower humanities research via ICT (cf. digital humanities)
  • to create art and expressions via ICT (cf. media art)
  • to support interactive cultural heritage experiences (cf. rituals)
  • to understand new cultures born in the Internet and Web (cf. net culture, social media).

The International Conference on Culture and Computing provides an opportunity to share research issues and discuss the future of culture and computing.
