    Digital Arts and Culture::2003
    MelbourneDAC::streaming wor(l)ds
    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
