The conference targets cultural policy makers, communication and media scientists, cultural and artistic actors as well as computer scientists and engineers, who conduct research and development in the fields of mixed reality, 3D technology, media integration, modelling, visualisation and interaction.

The presentations will discuss the following key topics:

  • Mixed Reality
  • Augmented and Virtual Reality
  • Acoustic and auditory augmentation
  • Human-machine interaction with virtual content
  • Interrelations between culture and computer science
  • Collections – Exploitation, design, exhibition and conveyance
  • Intuitive and personalised usage of media systems
  • Ethics in culture and computer science

These items shall primarily be analysed, demonstrated and critically discussed through concrete examples for museums, collections, art projects, or further cultural and creative fields.
