The 15th EUROGRAPHICS Workshop on Graphics and Cultural Heritage (GCH 2017) is organized by the Institute of Computer Graphics and Knowledge Visualization, Graz University of Technology and by Fraunhofer Austria. It aims to foster an international dialogue between ICT experts and CH scientists to advance the understanding of critical requirements for processing, managing, and delivering cultural information to a broad audience. To advance the dialogue between ICT and CH experts, GCH'17 will be held in close cooperation with the Museumsakademie of the Universalmuseum Joanneum in Graz, providing ample opportunity for exchange between the domains.
