Research Summit Series #3
Digital technologies and culture have become part of the fabric of our societies. In the digital sphere, artistic creation and scientific research are closely intertwined with the latest technological developments. Interfaces, visualisations, social media platforms, innovative communication devices, and data mining are significant components of our digital heritage. Does the inclusion of digital heritage into the museum world also enable digital arts to be finally represented in our publicly funded institutions?

The Research Summit is a new conference format at Danube University with the overall goal of bringing together scientists, technicians, students and the interested public for an interdisciplinary exchange.

Start times: San Francisco 5:30, New York 8:30, Sao Paulo 9:30, London 13:30, Krems 14:30, Moscow 15:30, Tbilisi 16:30, New Delhi 18:00, Bangkok 19:30, Singapore 20:30, Seoul 21:30, Sydney 22:30
