Digital cultural heritage is now a mature field, in which information 
technologies are used in the service of preserving cultural heritage. The 
digital form of resources allows for the exploitation of advances in data 
analytics, semantics, information retrieval, user interaction, profiling and 
personalization in order to develop new, exciting and stimulating cultural 
heritage experiences in tourism and education.

This special issue aims to form a reference point for the field of personalized 
delivery of cultural heritage content. We invite works that present and/or 
review the current state of the art in theory and practice, as well as 
promising recent advances in the area of aligning the delivery process for 
cultural heritage content to the needs, goals, characteristics and preferences 
of individual users and groups of users. The issue is broad in scope, with the 
caveat that emphasis should be on the link between cultural heritage and 
personalization techniques; works dealing exclusively with one of the two 
topics will be deemed out of scope.
