There is a list of speakers and paper titles available, though this doesn't go very far towards showing the range of material that will be presented. DAC is a conference that is serious about bringing theorists, educators, and artists working in digital culture together, and trying to find what we have in common. Just as importantly it is also to begin to find what we misunderstand in each others work, and to find how these misunderstandings might sometimes be productive, while at other times disruptive.
In keeping with previous DAC conferences MelbourneDAC provides a combination of established and emerging researchers, ensuring that much of the most exciting new work that is being undertaken in digital art and culture will be presented and discussed.
This means there are papers by practitioners and theorists on a range of key new media themes, including specific art projects, computer gaming, interactive narrative, digital poetics, hypertext, and digital aesthetics. It is about new researchers in new fields, the sort of work that represents the vanguard of new thinking in these fields (and yes, I actually do believe that).Posted by amiles at April 4, 2003 04:53 PM
