The Foundation Rinascimento Digitale, the Italian Ministry for Cultural Heritage and Activities and the Library of Congress are delighted to announce the conference:
CULTURAL HERITAGE on line. Empowering users: an active role for user communities
15-16 December 2009, Florence, Italy
Teatro della Pergola
Via della Pergola 30
The conference aims to explore, analyze, and evaluate the state of the art and future trends in user communities and cultural contents on the web from an international perspective, and bring together academic researchers, policy makers and practitioners, providing a forum for the discussion and dissemination of the selected themes. Internet continues to have an impressive impact on cultural heritage and humanist communities by affecting the way they work, use, exchange and produce knowledge. New architectures and radically different paradigms arise continuously engendering a deep rethinking of traditional roles and tasks.
The second day of the conference foresees two parallel sessions related to relevant themes as: digital library applications, interactive web, and sustainable policies for digital culture preservation. Invited authors outline the users and communities framework in digital libraries design and development. Several considerations will be also addressed to the improvement of collaborative tools introducing new capabilities for cooperation, knowledge creation, and collective intelligence.
