It has been a long history of Information Technology innovations within the Cultural Heritage areas. The Performing arts has also been enforced with a number of new innovations which unveil a range of synergies and possibilities.  Most of the technologies and innovations produced for digital libraries, media entertainment and education can be exploited in the field of performing arts, with adaptation and repurposing.  Performing arts offer many interesting challenges and opportunities for research and innovations and exploitation of cutting edge research results from interdisciplinary areas. For these reasons, the ECLAP 2012 can be regarded as a continuation of past conferences such as AXMEDIS and WEDELMUSIC (both pressed by IEEE and FUP). ECLAP is an European Commission project to create a social network and media access service for performing arts institutions in Europe, to create the e-library of performing arts, exploiting innovative solutions coming from the ICT. 

The ECLAP 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, and many others. The ECLAP conference should become a place where institutions, industries and European Commission and Europeana projects in the areas of cultural heritage can find a place to collaborate and present results. Thus, we invite all the interested groups to organize a workshop/section into ECLAP conference providing their proposal. Exhibition section offers settings (booth and tables) to host demonstrators. Demo/exhibition and poster sections will be also organized. 

The conference is going to have a main stream and a set of workshops and panels, with excellent keynote speakers. The conference will be constituted by top level research papers, that will be published in the proceedings pressed by Florence University Press, with ISBN, and promoted in the most relevant indexing engines.



We are expecting to have other sections/workshops to complete the paramount of the activities performed in Europe and Italy about performing arts, media access and entertainment. Major topics of the sections/workshops, but not limited to, are reported in the following (other topics could be proposed as well):

  • Experience in performing arts content  management and collections
  • Experiences in exploiting technologies for performing arts and cultural heritage
  • Conceptual models for performing arts metadata and collections
  • Technical aspects of media and entertainment
  • Standards for the performing arts and cultural heritage
  • Creativity aspects and technology


Please note that the general track on performing art, media access and entertainment also presents a lists of technical topics. Do not be afraid about possible overlap about workshops and the general track. Each single workshop would be entitled to engage their speakers. Papers of the workshops can be published into the proceedings only if the workshop organizer accepts the decision of the program committee members which is going to perform review and selection of paper for presentation and publication on the conference.
