ARCHIVES AND MUSEUM INFORMATICS:
THE CULTURAL HERITAGE INFORMATICS QUARTERLY
IMAGING, VISUALIZATION and HUMANITIES RESEARCH
DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS -- JUNE 30, 1999
Papers are requested for a special issue of Archives and Museum
Informatics: the cultural heritage information quarterly, a peer-reviewed
journal from Kluwer Academic publishers, that explores the *application*
of imaging technologies in humanities research.
Much has been written about the development of imaging systems and the
tools and techniques for image capture and visual database construction.
But what are the research results that come from using imaging
technologies? What new questions have they enabled us to ask, and answer?
Do these new ways of seeing change the way that we think about and
understand cultural artifacts and works of art? What advances have we made
in our research fields as a result of the use of these tools? What do we
know now, that we couldn't have known without visualization or imaging
technologies to assist our analysis?
Papers are invited that report on how imaging technologies were used in a
humanities informatics project to further the research goals of the
investigator. Authors are requested to highlight the tools that they used,
and how they related to the research problem investigated. What were the
benefits of using imaging and visualization technologies? What were the
draw backs? What recommendations can experience in one humanities research
project offer for others?
Full papers will be accepted for peer review and possible inclusion in this
issue until June 30, 1999. For Guidelines for Authors, and instructions
about submitting papers, please see
