Advances in machine learning, signal processing, multimodal techniques and human-machine interaction
In conjunction with ACM Multimedia 2023
29 Oct - 3 Nov, 2023
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: image, text, video, 3D, music, sensor data and structured referentials
- 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
