Graphics and Cultural Heritage: an international dialogue between ICT Experts and Cultural Heritage Scientists 

Organised and supported by CNR ISPCFraunhofer IGDthe University of Salento, and the EU-funded project PERCEIVE, the 21st Eurographics Workshop on Graphics and Cultural Heritage (GCH 2023) will take place in Salento (Lecce, Italy) from the 4th to the 6th of September 2023.

The workshop aims to foster an international dialogue between ICT experts and Cultural Heritage (CH) scientists to better understand the critical requirements for processing, managing, and delivering cultural information to a broader audience.

The GCH 2023 is organised for the first time as a joint event and in co-location with XRSalento 2023, which will take place from the 6th to the 8th of September.
