The Information Technology age has facilitated many significant changes in the field of cultural heritage and continues to be a dynamic and exciting forum for the emergence of new possibilities. This wave of change has had particularly significant consequences in the field of the Performing Arts, where the vast potential for digital content and new information technology exploitation continues to reveal itself, opening the doors to new and as-yet-unexplored synergies. Many technological developments concerning digital libraries, media entertainment, and education are now fully developed and ready to be exported, applied, utilized, and cultivated by the public.

In the spirit of this vibrant environment, ECLAP is pleased to announce the 2013 Conference on Information Technologies for Performing Arts, Media Access and Entertainment. Established by co-funding from the European Commission (ICT-PSP), ECLAP is a Best Practice Network that aims to create a network of experts and media access service for performing arts institutions in Europe, along with an e-library for the performing arts.

The ECLAP 2013 conference is open to researchers, professionals, industries, institutions, technicians, and practitioners in the area of performing arts and information technologies, media entertainment, technology enhanced learning, intelligent media systems, acoustic systems, cultural heritage, open data, content management, semantic models, metadata standards, and many others. The ECLAP conference aims to create a forum in which progress-oriented individuals and institutions within the aforementioned professions can find a place to collaborate and present results. We cordially invite all interested groups and individuals to submit proposals for sessions within the event, sessions, papers, posters and exhibitions. Each exhibition session offers space (booths and tables) to host demonstrators. Demo and poster sessions will also be organized.

The ECLAP 2013 conference will confirm a keynote-speaker lineup consisting of some of the most salient voices in the field and is currently looking to put together a set of workshops/sessions and panels that will conform to a standard of excellence.

The conference will comprise selected top-level papers, which will be published in the proceedings by Springer in the Lecture Notes on Computer Science (LNCS) series, complete with ISBN, and promoted in the most relevant indexing engines.

The acceptance rate of the ECLAP 2012 Conference has been of the 36%. See ECLAP 2012 web page and programme. In the 2012, we had more than 140 presences, people coming from 17 different countries, 6 workshops, 2 tutorials, 4 keynotes and representative people of the European Commission. Differently from this year, the proceedings of ECLAP 2012 have been pressed by FUP.
