Following a consolidated tradition, this Workshop once again aims to represent an opportunity for comparing possible contributions of artificial intelligence and other innovative technologies to conservation, valorisation and fruition of the cultural heritage. It presents novel research ideas, projects and scientific findings focused on city tours and touristic experiences. This is an important new area based on active involvement of a broad range of people to enhance the management of cultural heritage information. In this way the user is not only the information consumer but also the producer. A key ingredient is to address many classes of ambient: touristic routes, cities, parks, archaeological sites, ancient buildings and museums. Methodologies and technological utilities for online communities to become actively engaged in the publishing process, contribute their knowledge, and partake in a dynamic creation and conceptualisation of the cultural resources will be presented. The workshop is aimed to be multi-disciplinary. It is intended for researchers, practitioners, and students of information and communication technologies (ICT) and cultural heritage domains (museums, archives, libraries, and more).
