Program for 'Making Visible The Invisible'

We suggest you make your travel arrangements to arrive Wednesday evening. Events will last Friday late, so please schedule your departure for Saturday or even Sunday. March 13th 2011.

The aim of this conference is to start a conversation across disciplines. Central to the event will be conversations and debate into questions around interdisciplinary collaboration, data-visualisation and sustainability. The result of these discussions will be reported back to the main assembly, and initiate subsequent discussions. The aim is less to arrive at answers but to find shared concerns and explore the next relevant questions.

Invited keynotes - but no paper presentations. We are in the process of inviting distinguished keynote speakers from various background to present us with their perspectives.

Submissions will be considered for publication - after peer-review - and there is an opportunity to submit papers (7000 words) to a special edition of 'studies in culture and innovation' for peer-review.
