The 18th EUROGRAPHICS Workshop on Graphics and Cultural Heritage (GCH 2020) aims to engage practitioners and researchers across the world working at the interface of novel 3D digital technologies and cultural heritage. This year, EG GCH is taking place online, as it will be not possible to be hosted, as expected, in the historical and UNESCO World Heritage city of Granada, whose university is almost 500 years old and, at the same time, has one of the leading Computer Sciences departments in Europe.
The event will explore the role of computer graphics and digital technologies in cultural heritage preservation and dissemination, linking its development with other economic and scientific areas, such as conservation and restoration, or with the role of technologies in sustainable tourism.
GCH2020 welcomes presentations of projects and applications that demonstrate how computer graphics and other digital technologies could impact to cultural heritage. Specific sessions will be organized for active networking to seek new challenges and projects involving different stakeholders of the European Heritage ecosystem. Hence, interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary approaches are particularly welcome to the event.
For the research community, GCH 2020 will provide, as always, an excellent scientific forum to exchange novel ideas and developments as well as to identify future research and application opportunities. For the practitioner community, GCH 2020 will provide a unique opportunity to feed into technical developments as well as to identify new techniques and ideas which can be transferred into practice.
Given the expected situation due to the COVID-19 crisis in november, the conference will take place in a virtual format.
We will provide through this website all the necessary information and links to the schedule, the live streams of all talks, social activities, and more.
