Description

In the current era of qualitative communication, the present virtual space is intended to be a meeting point of all those who freely wish to boost and perfect the set of strategies and techniques to improve the human-computer interaction, tourism and cultural heritage. The main goal is to facilitate communicability and make the fruition of the new technologies more pleasant.

Our effort focuses on finding the common denominator between the human-computer interaction, cultural heritage and the global village. That is, we address all those who are currently working to increase the quality of life of the human beings through the new technologies and all their derivations, wanting to know the last advances in the factual and formal sciences and that this international workshop can serve as a meeting point to boost the current and future lines of research of the investigators belonging to the university, governmental bodies and the enterprises and industries of the private sector. All contributions should be of high originality, quality, clarity, significance and impact.
