Schermafbeelding 2014-01-25 om 00.31.59The 7th International Workshop on Personalized Access to Cultural Heritage (PATCH 2014) will be this year co-located with the Intelligent User Interfaces Conference (
IUI is the annual meeting of the intelligent interfaces community and serves as the principal international forum for reporting outstanding research and development on intelligent user interfaces. It takes place in Haifa, Israel on 24 February 2014.
The PATCH workshop series ( is the meeting point between state of the art cultural heritage and personalization research – using technology to enhance the personal experience in cultural heritage applications. PATCH aims  at building a research agenda for personalization in cultural heritage in order to make the individual cultural heritage experience a link in a chain of a lifelong cultural heritage experience which builds on past experience, is linked to daily life and provides the foundation for future experiences.
The workshop aims to be multi-disciplinary and it investigates three timely and interrelated issues relevant to the domains of both intelligent user interaction and cultural heritage:

– Mobile, personalized and context aware cultural heritage information delivery – using mobile devices, large displays, projectors embedded in the environment and new technologies including Google Glass.

– Grow existing knowledge with new knowledge – Explore methods and tools to capture knowledge resulting from interactions between users (collective intelligence), professionals and collection artifacts, and interaction between users and different (intelligent systems) collecting information about them

– Extend contexts of use – Appropriation of digitized artifacts from memory organizations outside the traditional museum and research context for both visitors and professionals

The workshop is intended for researchers, practitioners, developers and students of information and communication technologies (ICT), cultural heritage domains, e.g. museums, archives, libraries, and more, and personalization.
