The 15th EUROGRAPHICS Workshop on Graphics and Cultural Heritage (GCH 2017) was organized by the Institute of Computer Graphics and Knowledge Visualization, Graz University of Technology and by Fraunhofer Austria. It aimed 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 was held in close cooperation with the Museumsakademie of the Universalmuseum Joanneum in Graz, providing ample opportunity for exchange between the domains.
The GCH'17 proceedings are published online in the EUROGRAPHICS digital library.

- The results of the session "3D Mass Digitization - Future Trends, Challenges and Opportunities" are now online. During the sessions, practitioners and researchers discussed future trends, challenges and opportunities of 3D mass digitization in order to better implement and make use of large-scale digitization in the long term. Besides, further research related topics were defined to shape future work in this area.
The summary of the contributions also includes input from a previous session being held at the 14th EUROGRAPHICS Workshop on Graphics and Cultural Heritage, 5-7 October 2016 in Genova, Italy.
The results are summarized in form of a position paper to be published for policy use and to be included in respective research agendas (Position paper: Current challenges in the context of 3D mass digitization - summary of the tutorial on 3D mass digitization).
