Digital Heritage 2013 is composed of a number of tracks, including tutorials, sessions, workshops, exhibitions, and panel discussions. Special Sessions will by organised by means of
•    Tutorials

For a Special Session proposal to be considered for acceptance at DigitalHeritage2013, the proposed topic needs to be a presentation of teaching objectives (tutorials), contributions to the state-of-the-art, new initiatives or an emerging area in one of the core themes of the conference. The topic should be timely and significantly important to the audience, and the speakers need to convey compelling information about it :

  • Tutorials should be planned as half-day or full-day tutorials at introductory, intermediate and advanced levels covering the entire spectrum of the topics of the Conference. They envision teaching the technical background to a given subject, or demonstrating its potential for creative applications. Tutorials are intended to show what can be done, but even more importantly, how this is done and what kind of tools can be used to do it. In a proposal for a tutorial authors should consider that tutorial attendees come from diverse backgrounds, ranging from research and development to education, curatorship and application.
  • Proposals for workshops and panels will be judged by the ability to bring together key researchers from the heritage as well the ICT domain in the state-of-the-art area, introduce a new area to the overall community, further develop the area, and help establishing a larger research community beyond the area. Special session proposals covering multi-disciplinary areas are particularly encouraged, as well as those proposals regarding common challenges, e.g. (and not restricted to) Methods in Archaeology, Museums and Technology, etc.

Special Session submissions should provide a proposal (up to 4 A4-pages) after the mandatory abstract. Proposals for special sessions must indicate its nature, i.e. workshop, tutorial or panel within the ‘Title’ followed by a topics title, rationale, session outline, its motivations, a short description of the material to be covered, contacts information including: name; affiliation; email; mailing address; a short CV for each presenter, participant or authors who have agreed to participate with their results to the session, with a tentative title and short abstract (150 chars) for each presentation.
