View conference programme 

Our conference revolves around 5 keynote presentations and 10 ‘sessions’.

Each ‘session’ features a range of parallel panels, workshops, performances and screenings from which you can choose, depending on your interests. During some of these sessions, you are welcome to attend panels being run by our sister conference, ‘Whose Right to the Smart City?’, which focuses on information and communication technologies in marginalised communities.

Our programme includes a special lunchtime session for PGRs as well as two longtables, during which we can share impressions and ideas arising from the conference theme of DATA ACHE.

Running across the conference are installations on the University campus, as well as an exhibition of artistic research, curated by Andrew Prior, at the Radiant Gallery. You can also watch Oreet Ashery’s video series, Revisiting Genesis, which has been shortlisted for the prestigious 2017 Jarman Award, on a loop in the Jill Craigie Cinema. These installations, exhibitions and screenings are open to the public as well.

Conference Meal and Wine Reception

We round off the opening day of the conference (Sunday 10th September) with a wine reception at Radiant Gallery  from 6.30pm.

The conference dinner will take place at the National Marine Aquarium,  the largest public aquarium in the UK, on Tuesday 12th September. Their awe-inspiring exhibits, featuring marine animals from near and far, provide an environment that intrigues, inspires and motivates our visitors to engage with our conservation messages and hopefully do their bit to help protect the marine environment.
