EVA Berlin Conference on Electronic Media and Art, Culture, History
Berlin, Germany

Scholarship / Financial aid: N/A

Date: 5-7 November 2014

Deadline: 30 June 2014

Open to: interested public

Announcement follows

The 21st EVA Berlin conference on Electronic Media and Art, Culture, History will be held from 5 to 7 November 2014.

As in previous years the venue is the Kunstgewerbemuseum (Museum of Decorative Arts) at the Kulturforum Potsdamer Platz, Berlin's culture Plaza (Matthäikirchplatz 8, 10785 Berlin).

The interested public are cordially invited by this year's conference organisers, the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, Preußischer Kulturbesitz (National Museums in Berlin, Prussian Cultural Heritage) and the Fraunhofer Institut für Graphische Datenverarbeitung IGD (Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research IGD), to participate actively in the programme with lectures, workshops and exhibition.

Call for Papers

Also this year, experts and the interested public are again invited to participate actively in the conference talks, workshops or exhibition.

Contributions can be submitted to following focus:

Data is a key resource of our digital society. The ubiquity of networked sensors and computers is changing the conditions of our communication. Wearable computing and miniaturised smart devices pervade everyday life and blur the lines between virtual and real. In the 'internet of things', ambient intelligence fosters new and adaptive information technologies.

At the intersection of material past and digital future, cultural heritage institutions are taking on new tasks. To ensure the future of cultural heritage in our digital knowledge-based society and to enable broad access to this knowledge is tantamount to an institutional repositioning. Where digital technologies are dominating cultural practice, museums transform from material archives into digital information hubs. The reference points of a materialised past that keep collections out of the economic and utility cycle have themselves become producers oft he digital present.

Developing the infrastructures needed is a strategic and economic challenge which most of the cultural and academic institutions have to face today. The transfer of the physical stock into digital formats is a comprehensive inventory and the continuous growth of digital content requires efficient, effective and collaborative networks. Big data repositories not only allow innovative combinations of data but also raise questions regarding the institutional sovereignty of data and control. Also, new technologies have been introduced to the cultural economic landscape regarding inventory documentation and knowledge presentation. Time-consuming and costly procedures of 3D-digitisation, augmented reality applications or of multimodal access can only be tested effectively in the context of synergistic cooperation models. Reuse opportunities must be seized and sustainable storage processes be developed. Finally, the aspect of participative communication and dialogue between cultural heritage institutions and the public needs to be mentioned in the context of the 'social web'.

The 21st EVA conference in Berlin offers a discussion forum for these current topics. It will encourage the exchange between heritage institutions and technology providers, information professionals and the public administration. Innovative contributions to the conference and proposals for application-oriented workshops are expected. Procedures, technologies, projects and products can be exhibited in parallel.
