Best In-Use Paper for Mobile Cultural Heritage Guide

The paper “Mobile Cultural Heritage Guide: Location-aware Semantic Search” by Chris van Aart, Bob Wielinga and Willem Robert van Hage, won the prize for “Best In-Use Paper” at the Knowledge Engineering and Knowledge Management by the Masses conference (EKAW 2010) in Lisbon, Portugal. This paper, written in collaboration with members of the NoTube and Poseidon projects, presents a mobile app that uses GPS to determine the location of the user, and make him/her aware of historic events that have taken place there, artworks that were created at or inspired by those locations and artists that have lived or worked there. See a screen shot of the app with an explanation of the different elements.
