This report presents an analysis of the current state and future directions of research in ICT specifically inspired by the needs of the cultural heritage sector. Starting from an overview of the place and challenge of Cultural Heritage in ICT research the report first highlights the need for close inter-disciplinary working between cultural heritage and ICT professionals if resources are to be focussed on the most appropriate ICT research. There follows a description of five hypothetical future scenarios for particular work situations involving cultural heritage professionals and the areas of ICTs that require additional research to support the scenarios envisaged are identified. The needs are then grouped over the five scenarios and the specific research issues elaborated.
