expression, while they constitute important instruments for the social and
ethnic cohesion.


The aim of this Special Track is to document the state-of-the-art in
technologies and issues around cultural collections and back-end
infrastructures. The objective is to generate a forum  in which researchers
and scientists that are working on relevant issues and applications to come
together, meet and exchange ideas about the main open issues, so that more
effective progress can be made in this area.

- Ontologies and knowledge representation for the cultural heritage domain

- Linked open data approaches for the cultural heritage domain

- Composite content-discovery and management of components and
