#di2014 will be jointly organized with Scopitone, the main French Festival on digital arts and electronic music (Scopitone 2014, Sept. 16-21, 2014). #di2014 is at the heart of the Nantes Digital Week (Sept. 13-21, 2014) which brings together conferences, workshops, demonstrations, performances and concerts related to Art, Science and Economy.
At once festive, innovative and hybrid, Nantes Digital Week appeal to a wide audience and will be organized around major events: Startup Weekend, Scopitone festival on Digital Art and Electronic Cultures, FabLab Day, Robotic Day, etc.
The program will be built around four main components: plenary invited talks, contributed talks in parallel sessions, artistic sessions, performances and works shared with the Scopitone festival and finally sessions and events related to the (real) economy of digital cultures.
I am involved as a member of the Program Committee in the smart cities area, chaired by Stéphane Roche (Department of Geomatics, Université Laval - Québec, Canada). Here you can find the call for papers in case you want to submit a paper.
