Digital Arts and Culture::2003
The 2003 iteration of the Digital Arts and Culture (DAC) international
conference series is to be held on the city campus of RMIT University,
Melbourne, Australia from May 19 to 23, 2003.
MelbourneDAC:streaming wor(l)ds will bring together an international cohort
of artists, practitioners, developers, theorists and teachers to define and
explore major themes and ideas confronting contemporary new media practice.
The 2003 event will explore the theory and practice of computer gaming,
ergodic narrative, distributed and/or immersive performance environments,
and streaming media with a particular focus on the real, imagined and
wished for worlds that these things create.
[what is the Digital Arts and Culture conference?]
DAC was founded in 1998 by Espen Aarseth as an international conference
focusing on new media theory and practice in critical contexts. DAC seeks
to bring together new media artists and theorists in a spirit of
collaboration and exploration. It has nurtured a significant international
community of young and innovative researchers, artists and scholars in the
interdisciplinary field of new media, and has become the benchmark
conference for research and collaborative endeavour in new media. DAC
offers a forum that recognises the importance of bringing together leading
practitioners from art and theory for the exchange of ideas and to develop
international professional networks and knowledge economies.
MelbourneDAC:streaming wor(l)ds intends to continue this role through the
papers, panels, forums, and exhibition it hosts, and the innovative series
of collaborative workshops and events that will be undertaken by all
conference participants. The mission of MelbourneDAC is to exchange ideas
and promote new developments in digital arts and culture and to ensure that
all participants develop relevant and sustainable professional communities.
A call for papers will be distributed shortly.
A call for entries for the MelbourneDAC::streaming wor(l)ds exhibition will
be distributed shortly.
All conference material will be published (all participants will receive
their copy during MelbourneDac).
A mentoring process will be available to postgraduate students and new
academics who wish to have feedback in the development of their contributions.
A moderated announcement list for all interested in receiving additional
information and updates is available. Subscription details at
