Now online the Special Issue “Advanced technologies in Cultural Heritage”, directed by Alan Wecker (Information Systems Department, Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Haifa), Fabrizio Terenzio Gizzi (CNR ISPC) and Ion Sandu (Science Department, Interdisciplinary Research Institute, Alexandru Ioan Cuza University of Iasi), within the open access Journal Applied Sciences by MDPI.

The field of cultural heritage lends itself to the use of advanced and novel technologies. This is due to a variety of reasons, whether it be based on leisure time or school educational visits to cultural heritage sites. Following the COVID pandemic, cultural heritage sites and museums have had to reinvent themselves in order to become more relevant to the general public. To accomplish this reinvention, many cultural heritage sites have turned to technology.

The Special Issue aims at publishing a volume concerning the latest advances within this field. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following topics:

  • Use of AI
  • AR/VR and mixed reality
  • Location-based services
  • Social applications
  • Social media
  • User modeling
  • Recommendation systems
  • Eye tracking
  • Systems for depolarization
  • Speech technology
  • Web technologies
  • Remote visits
  • Wearable devices

Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 October 2024
