Call for papers:

It has been a long history of Information Technology innovations within the Cultural Heritage areas. The Performing arts have also been enforced with a number of new innovations which unveil a range of synergies and possibilities.  Most of the technologies and innovations produced for digital libraries, media entertainment and education can be exploited in the field of performing arts, with adaptation and repurposing. Performing arts offer many interesting challenges and opportunities for research and innovations and exploitation of cutting edge research results from interdisciplinary areas. For these reasons, the ECLAP 2012 Conference can be regarded as a continuation of past conferences such as AXMEDIS and WEDELMUSIC (both pressed by IEEE and FUP). ECLAP is a European Commission project to create a social network and media access service for performing arts institutions in Europe, to create the e-library of performing arts, exploiting innovative solutions coming from the ICT.

The ECLAP 2012 conference is open to researchers, professionals, industries, institutions, technicians and practitioners in the area of performing arts and information technologies, media entertainment, technology enhanced learning, intelligent media systems, acoustic systems, cultural heritage, and many others. The ECLAP conference should become a place where institutions, industries and European Commission and Europeana projects in the areas of cultural heritage can find a place to collaborate and present results. Thus, we invite all the interested groups to organize a workshop/section into ECLAP conference providing their proposal. Exhibition section offers settings (booth and tables) to host demonstrators. Demo and poster sections will be also organized.
