During the Summer School some of our UrbanIxD Advisory Board members will be participating in a workshop facilitated by project partners Martin Brynskov and Gianluca Zaffiro. This event will consider emergent research topics and themes.
Here are the details about what will be happening in Split in August.
Interview with Gordan Savičić, a researcher and critical engineer. He is also atelier leader at our summer school.
There will be a limited number of complimentary press passes available to members of the media who will cover the Summer School for relevant print, online or broadcast media.
Interview with Nicolas Nova, a writer, ethnographer, and a consultant at the Near Future Laboratory. He is also speaker at our summer school.
The UrbanIxD Summer School will explore our relationship with data in the Networked City of the near future. The approach will focus on human interactions and how these might change and develop and thereby impact on the development of cities.
Interview with Tobias Revell, an artist, designer and educator from London. He is also atelier leader at our summer school.
It’s hard to believe that the UrbanIxD project only started at the beginning of January and that we only began the planning for the Summer School a few months ago. Since then we have brought together a fantastic lineup of speakers and atelier leaders – we are really proud to be associated with such an inspirational collection of people.
Split is the economic and administrative center of Middle Dalmatia, with about 200,000 inhabitants. It is also the jumping-off point for exploration of the coast and islands of the beautiful Croatian Adriatic. The site was first settled when, at the end of the third century AD, the Roman Emperor Diocletian built his palace here.
Summer school venue is Youth Centre & Multimedia Cultural Centre Split.
The UrbanIxD project Summer School is to take place in the beautiful and historic town of Split in Croatia. This will be an interdisciplinary, workshop style event.
This Coordination Action will define a coherent multidisciplinary research community working in the domain of technologically augmented, data-rich urban environments, with particular focus on the human activities, experiences and behaviours that occur within them (Interaction Design).
