Call for Papers
SUMAC 2024
6th ACM International workshop on analySis, Understanding and
proMotion of heritAge Contents

Advances in machine learning, signal processing, multimodal techniques
and human-machine interaction

28 Oct - 1 Nov, 2024
Melbourne, Australia (attendance mode TBA)
In conjunction with ACM Multimedia 2024

Main Conference: 
*** Aims and scope

The ambition of SUMAC is to bring together researchers and
practitioners from different disciplines to share ideas and methods on
current trends in the analysis, understanding and promotion of
heritage contents. These challenges are reflected in the corresponding
sub-fields of machine learning, signal processing, multi-modal
techniques and human-machine interaction. We welcome research
contributions for the following (but not limited to) topics:

    Monomodal analysis: text, structured referentials, image, video, 3D, music, sensor data
    Information retrieval for multimedia heritage
    Automated archaeology and heritage data processing
    Multi-modal deep learning and time series analysis for heritage data
    Heritage modeling, visualization, and virtualization
    Smart digitization and reconstruction of heritage data
    Open heritage data and bench-marking

The scope of targeted applications is extensive and includes:

    Analysis, archaeometry of artifacts
    Diagnosis and monitoring for restoration and preventive conservation
    Geosciences / Geomatics for cultural heritage
    Smart and sustainable tourism
    Urban planning
    Digital Twins

*** Submission guidelines

Submission format. All submissions must be original work not under
review at any other workshop, conference, or journal. The workshop
will accept papers describing completed work (full paper) as well as
work in progress (short paper). Two submission formats are accepted:
a) 4 pages plus 1-page reference (short paper); or b) 8 pages plus up
to 2-page reference (full paper). They must be encoded as PDF using
the ACM Article Template of the main conference ACM Multimedia 2024

Peer Review and publication in ACM Digital Library. Paper submissions
must conform with the “double-blind” review policy. All papers
will be peer-reviewed by experts in the field, they will receive at
least two reviews. Acceptance will be based on relevance to the
workshop, scientific novelty, and technical quality. Depending on the
number, maturity and topics of the accepted submissions, the work will
be presented via oral or poster sessions. The workshop papers will be
published in the ACM Digital Library.
