EITA-New Media 2012--The second EITA workshop on Arts, Culture, New Media, and Entertainment will be held on Friday, July 27, 2012 at the Sheraton Palo Alto hotel (Stanford University), Palo Alto, California. The theme for the EITA-New Media 2012 is "New Media in Art, Technology, and Heritage". Please visit the website at for more conference details.

Heritage is all the things that make up our national identity. "Our heritage is a legacy from our past, a living, integral part of life today, and what we pass on to future generations" - UNESCO. We can know our identity through our cultural heritage.

The rise of new media has increased communication between people all over the world and the Internet. It has allowed people to express themselves through (at least for now) Internet, blogs, websites, computer multimedia, pictures, and other user-generated media. Cultural heritage shapes relationships with our neighbors and with other communities around the world. We believe that respect for, and celebration of, our diverse cultural heritage promotes human understanding and economic development in an increasingly interdependent world.

The use of new media in the service of cultural heritage is known as virtual heritage. Virtual heritage is a mix of cultural heritage with information and communication technologies (ICT). The aim of the EITA-New Media 2012 is to explore the opportunities and challenges of using digital media in the research, preservation, management, interpretation, and representation of cultural heritage. The one-day workshop brought together leading interdisciplinary scholars, artists, and media industry representatives to reflect on the nature of knowledge in the digital age.

We are pleased to invite you to attend the EITA-New Media 2012 and submit proposals for papers, panels, demonstrations, and SIG discussions. The Conference Review Policy requires that each proposal will be peer-reviewed by for inclusion in the conference program, and CD-ROM proceedings.
