Research Summit #03 | Sep 4, 2019 | 2:30 pm - 6:00 pm

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, visualizations, 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?

Because of the postdigital turn, digital materialities are explored through multisensory devices, haptic interfaces and tangible user applications. Simultaneously, through digitalization, new experiences of (inaccessible) cultural heritage have been established with virtual and immersive installations, 3D illusions and data visualizations. Today, we live in ever-changing knowledge societies: how do these new digital infrastructures influence socio-cultural transformations?

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.
