According to UNESCO, the intangible cultural heritage (ICH) is the mainspring of humanity's cultural diversity and its maintenance is a guarantee for continuing creativity. However, ICH’s creations are typically transmitted orally or by gestures and are modified over a period of time. Hence, there is a need to properly safeguard certain elements of ICH. Recent technological advances in ICT can significantly contribute towards this task: multisensory capture technologies, novel multimodal data fusion techniques, semantic media analysis and interpretation approaches for the documentation of ICH, interactive learning and environments, etc. The aim of this special session is to focus on such ICT-based modeling techniques, applications and tools for analysis, indexing, knowledge retrieval and valorization through educational scenarios of ICH content.
