logo_verde ariba


Dear CAC.4 participants and partners, we are introducing Araribá,  an excellent reference for travel in Rio and to Rio. André and Ed are our contacts at . They can help you coming to Rio and any special travel in Brazil.  At the core, Araribá is comprised of a group of Masters and PhD’s from respected universities with expertise in Biology, Geology, History, Sociology, Archaeology and the Arts. As a result, Araribá is uniquely qualified and has been very active in the planning and support of scientific expeditions in these areas.

Have a great time!



Welcome to London, England. The conference dates will be Sunday 31 August 2014, 5pm – Wednesday 3 September 2014, 2pm GMT.

Human beings, as users, have always been obsessed with finding new ways of communicating through various techniques and technologies.
The rapid technological changes that have occurred during the last two decades have allowed us – the users – to communicate through various social media platforms, providing us with more easily, faster and more frequently ways of communicating.
However there are always concerns about other impacts those technologies might have on the communication processes.

The aim of the conference is to facilitate conversations on Design and collaborations between

  • Digital Arts and Humanities,
  • Creative Industries,
  • Digital Libraries and Archives,

with an emphasis on communication futures and there impact to historical, theoretical, knowledge-transfer research processes.
For the first time the DRHA conference would like to support and bring together the Academic environment with that of the Creative industries under a conference that will affect the current interdisciplinary creative practices.

The DRHA2014 will include ground breaking academic papers and well-known speakers and series of presentations.  Join the Conference for up-to-date discussions, dynamic debates, innovative keynotes and experimental performances and aims to open a discussion on defining design NOW, as a discipline that connects interdisciplinary practices, focusing particularly on issues of communication and its impact on adjacent industries that affect the following subtheme extensions:

  • Digital Museums and Libraries;
  • Histories and Archives;
  • Virtual and Physical Spaces
  • A World of Gaming;
  • Digital Agora: Democratising or monopolising
  • Gender and Contemporary Society;
  • Technology and Body
  • Technologies impact on the Socio/cultural;
  • Social Media;
  • Narratives;
  • Big Data and Digital Death;
  • Eternity Ethernet: is it eternal or will disappear tomorrow
  • Creative practices: Design; Fine Arts; Architecture; Performance; Sonic Arts

We invite original papers, panels, installations, performances, workshop sessions and other events that address the conference theme. We encourage proposals with innovative and non-traditional session formats. Short presentations, for example work-in-progress, are invited for poster presentations.

The Event will be held in the historical centre of Maritime Greenwich and in Old Royal Naval College, University of Greenwich but also partly in our new campus and in other venues around the Royal Borough of Greenwich in the heart of London, UK.

Digital Latin America Symposium

Symposium Registration Now Open!

Digital Latin America Symposium

June 7 & 8, 2014
Register today to save your space!

516 ARTS announces Digital Latin America Symposium for the opening
weekend of the Digital Latin America exhibition. The Symposium will
showcase presentations on creative innovation using digital media as
well as artistic and scientific crossovers in contemporary Latin
American new media art.

Connecting individuals, cultures, traditions and social histories to a
rapidly expanding global network remains not only a pressing
challenge, but a profound opportunity and necessity. The utopian
notion of closing the “digital divide” represents a paradigm shift
that encourages the participation of all communities and cultures to
express themselves through contemporary methods and continue a
progressive existence in today’s technology dependent society.

The two-day symposium features six sessions in one track, so
participants can attend all of the programs. Sessions include:

* Keynote Speaker: Pablo Helguera

* Exploring Language and Communication through New Media

* Indigenous Pop: Music and the Digital Presence of Sisa Toaquiza,
Flor de los Andes

* Territory of the Imagination: Reimagining the Borders of Art and Space

* STEM + Arts Education Forum

About Digital Latin America

Exhibition * Symposium * Block Party

Digital Latin America is an outgrowth of the Latin American Forum for
the award-winning International Symposium on Electronic Arts
(ISEA2012) produced by 516 ARTS in 2012 ( It
explores the North/South axis of cultural development and exchange
between South America, Central America and the Southwest United
States. Presenting partners are the UNM Art Museum, the Albuquerque
Museum of Art & History and the National Hispanic Cultural Center. The
project looks at the way in which artists negotiate the complex
terrain between global and local, virtual and real, and political and
private, in the creation of work that proposes alternative
understandings of technology, art and cultural exchange.

Visual analytics practice provides complex systems to analyze data. The discipline is a rich domain for transdisciplinary applications such as in scientific and social science investigation; cognitive science and (visual) arts  and design creative practices knowledge and innovation. Visual analytics supports a mix of cognitive and perceptual reasoning. Visual analytics systems provide profound value for many crucial components of health care such as study and prediction of epidemiology or of specific diseases and conditions; clinical diagnosis; the management and analysis of patient condition; social media tools to support clinical work and communication and the analysis of healthcare communication.  We invite panel presentations regarding: 1) the application of visual analytics tools to all fields of healthcare; 2) perspectives on visual analytics in healthcare from the specific disciplinary perspectives (medical, design, computer science, visual culture analysis).

DESIGN IN FREEDOM – XVIII Congreso de la Sociedad Iberoamericana de Gráfica Digital (SIGRADI)

Sociedad Iberoamericana de Gráfica Digital (SIGraDi) | XVIII Congreso “Design in Freedom” | Montevideo | URUGUAY

Call for Abstracts

 1. Summary

SIGraDi Congress 2014, called “Design in Freedom”, is an invitation to reflect on freedom.
Freedom understood as the possibility of overcoming the old boundaries of design from the new tools, and at the same time, the ability to create, build and share these tools in the community of creators, developers and users.
In this manner, “Design in Freedom” is both a premise and a slogan. It is a multidisciplinary approach from the conceptual basis of design freedom and the tools that provides us.
In the current context of the knowledge society, design, development and its cognition must be based on new values, capable of expanding horizons and allow renewed approaches to think, design and perform.
From these values, we aim to generate new challenges and new thinking on the ways and strategies to follow in the ever changing world of design, from a cross look essentially founded on the concept of freedom.
