A paper titled "Writing Postcards from the Museum: Composing Personalised Tangible Souvenirs " and reporting work conducted within the meSch project has been awarded the best paper award at the CHItaly 2017 conference. The award includes a one-year Interaction Design Foundation professional membership.

The paper is authored by Elena Not, Massimo Zancanaro (FBK - i3), Mark T. Marshall, Daniela Petrelli (Sheffield Hallam University)  and Anna Pisetti (Museo Storico Italiano della Guerra). It discusses how the techniques for personalised text generation can be applied in the cultural heritage domain to produce post-visit souvenir postcards exploiting the interaction logs collected during museum visits. For each visitor the personalised postcard summarises the visit, creates a link with what was experienced and suggests further paths for content discovery.

The 12th Edition of CHItaly, the biannual Conference of the Italian SIGCHI Chapter, was held from 18th to 20th of September 2017 in Cagliari. The Chapter is an active community that brings together people working on the design, evaluation, and implementation of interactive computing systems for human use.

The paper is available from the ACM Digital library (link).
