The Conference

SCCH 2015 cancelled

We regret to inform you that SCCH 2015 is cancelled. This decision
by the program committee was not taken lightly, but the feedback
on our call for papers was not substantial enough to justify the
organization of SCCH 2015.

Instead, the program committee will in November to revise the
concept of the conference, bring in new key players and aspects
and set up the conference anew for either 2016 or 2017. We will
update the web site regarding the of the program committee
in due time and make sure to re-invite for the next conference.

Chair of organization

SCCH 2015 is the fifth conference on scientific computing and computational humanities to be held at Heidelberg. The conference brings together scientists from applied mathematics and computer science on the one hand and researchers in cultural heritage projects on the other hand. The main topic is the application of scientific computing techniques to improve research work in areas such as art history, archaeology, transcultural studies and similar topics.

SCCH 2015, November 23th – 25th 2015
Internationales Wissenschaftsforum Heidelberg (IWH)

Abstract submission deadline: June 25th 2015

SCCH 2015 will feature mini sessions on predefined topics as well as general session for the presentation of new methodology and/or ongoing project work. Invited key lectures complement the conference program and introduce participants into details of this vibrant new interdisciplinary field.

The organizing committee especially encourages students to present their research work in the student poster session. Four student contributions will be invited to give an oral presentation in special student section of the conference. The best student presentation will be honoured with the SCCH student presentation award.

Remark: SCCH was originally “Scientific Computing and Cultural Heritage”. Since the conference broadened its scope over the last 8 years, we changed the title to  “Scientific Computing and Computational Humanities” to reflect this broader scope. The acronym cleverly stays the same 😉
