The Information Technology age has brought about many significant changes in the field of cultural heritage and continues to be a dynamic and exciting forum for the emergence of new possibilities. This wave of change has particularly had significant consequences in the field of Performing Arts, where the vast potential for digital content and new information technology exploitation continues to reveal itself, opening the doors to new and as yet unexplored synergies.

ECLAP is pleased to announce the 2013 Conference on Information Technologies for Performing Arts, Media Access and Entertainment. Established with co-funding from the European Commission (ICT-PSP), ECLAP is a Best Practice Network that aims to create a network of experts and media access service for performing arts institutions in Europe, along with an e-library for the performing arts.

The ECLAP 2013 conference is open to researchers, professionals, industries, institutions, technicians, and practitioners in the area of performing arts and information technologies, media entertainment, technology enhanced learning, intelligent media systems, acoustic systems, cultural heritage, open data, content management, semantic models, metadata standards, and many others. The ECLAP conference aims to create a forum in which progress-oriented individuals and institutions within the aforementioned professions can find a place to collaborate and present results. We cordially invite all interested groups and individuals to submit proposals for sessions within the event, sessions, papers, posters and exhibitions. Each exhibition session offers space (booths and tables) to host demonstrators. Demo and poster sessions will also be organized.

The ECLAP 2013 conference will confirm a keynote-speaker lineup consisting of some of the most salient voices in the field and is currently looking to put together a set of sessions and panels that will conform to a standard of excellence. The conference will comprise selected top-level papers, which will be published complete with ISBN and largely indexed via Springer (pending), and promoted in the most relevant indexing engines.
