The XVIth Conference of the international AHC aims to bring together specialists from three broad streams:


- Scholars, using computers in historical and related studies (history of art, archaeology, literary studies, etc.)

- Information and computing scientists, working in the domain of cultural heritage and the humanities

- Professionals, working in cultural heritage institutes (archives, libraries, museums) who use ICT to preserve and give access to their collections

The subject matter of the conference is primarily oriented at methodological issues, and not restricted to one particular domain within historical sciences and the humanities. Preferably, sessions will consist of a mix of these three interest groups and fields. There will be numerous cross links between the streams.

- Data access, retrieval and presentation: Data bases in historical/humanities research;

- Data mining, data harvesting and data syndication;

- Digital data archives & longevity of digital heritage;

- Personalization and presentation of heritage information;

- Virtual libraries and virtual collaboratories in the humanities;

- Enriching data: Digital source editions; Knowledge enrichment and encoding methods;
