Call for Papers, Posters & Short Papers

The Call is CLOSED

Contribution format for CHNT29 | 2024

The CHNT Committee invites you to submit the following contributions in the form of a long abstract for a specific session or round table (see below):

Papers are intended to present new research and best-practices concerning methods, technologies and their application in the cultural heritage sector as well as thorough discussions of their impact and theoretical implications in the field. The papers are subject to single-blind peer-review by external reviewers and members of the scientific committee of CHNT.

The papers will be presented in a session at the conference. The paper should be submitted in the form of a long abstract. Please use the appropriate template.

Short papers provide the opportunity to present a wide range of topics, ranging from the presentation of new projects, preliminary reports or the exchange of experiences and smaller tweaks in the application of already established methods and technologies. Short papers are reviewed by the session chairs and the editorial team of CHNT.

The short papers will be presented in a round table at the conference. The short paper should be submitted in the form of a long abstract. Please use the appropriate template.

The “CHNT Poster Session” is a thematically “open” call for papers, but must be within the framework of the conference. The poster will be presented during the entire conference (online & on-site) and the authors are invited to give a short presentation (max. 3 minutes) of their project.

The poster should be described in the form of a long abstract. Please use the appropriate template. A poster submission can also be linked to a session or round table (in this case, there is no need to submit an additional long abstract for the poster session). If the abstract will be accepted, please send the poster (PDF!) by November,  2024.
