Cultural heritage research and practice is increasingly aided by and dependent on digital media. In the last decade or so, digital media have become the choice media for the documentation, management, and communication of cultural heritage. However, it is often argued that digital media tend to create and compile value-free content and thus are unable to communicate cultural and symbolic meanings. Digital media, as any other medium, tend to amplify or reduce the cultural phenomena as a result of their constraints and limitations. Thus the issue of using digital media for cultural heritage is by no means a simple one and must be examined from different angles. The aim of DMACH2008 is to explore the opportunities and challenges of using digital media in the research, preservation, management, interpretation, and representation of cultural heritage.
