Jussi Ängeslevä
Berlin University of the Arts and Royal College of Arts, London

Opening Keynote

Professor Jussi Ängeslevä is a designer, an artist and an educator. With home base at the Berlin University of the Arts and Royal College of Arts in London, but lecturing around the planet, he is actively involved in the ever expanding field of new media, working with digital materiality and interaction design. In parallel to the academic work, he is the Vice Creative Director of ART+COM studios, where his work in public art commissions, exhibitions and installations are consistently yielding international recognition.
His independent works have been awarded by institutions such as Royal Society of Arts, NESTA, Art Directors Club of Europe, D&AD, Ars Electronica and ZKM. Over the years he has served in numerous international art and design juries, academic chairs and boards. Throughout his career his focus has always been intentionally in between fields: combining understanding of visual, physical and interaction design with algorithmic, electronic and mechatronic knowledge to create innovative and elegant experiences. His design ethos is leveraging hardware, software, physical and graphic design in the search for elegance in highly specific solutions, where the meaning of a work is inseparable from the medium communicating it.

Closing Keynote

Adrian David Cheok is Director of the Imagineering Institute, Malaysia, and Chair Professor of Pervasive Computing at City, University of London. He is Founder and Director of the Mixed Reality Lab, Singapore. He was formerly Full Professor at Keio University, Graduate School of Media Design and Associate Professor in the National University of Singapore. He has previously worked in real-time systems, soft computing, and embedded computing in Mitsubishi Electric Research Labs, Japan. He has been working on research covering mixed reality, human-computer interfaces, wearable computers and ubiquitous computing, fuzzy systems, embedded systems, power electronics.
This talk outlines new facilities that are arising in the hyper connected internet era within human media spaces. This allows new embodied interaction between humans, species, and computation both socially and physically, with the aim of novel interactive communication and entertainment. Humans can develop new types of communication environments using all the senses, including touch, taste, and smell, which can increase support for multi-person multi-modal interaction and remote presence. In this talk, we present an alternative ubiquitous computing environment and space based on an integrated design of real and virtual worlds. We discuss some different research prototype systems for interactive communication, culture, and play.

Old Meets New - Design and Prototyping Workshop

In this workshop, we address the theme old meets new in the world of books. We consider the physicality and digital enhancement of books by designing and prototyping concepts that reflect old and new design aspects. To participate to the workshop, you should be able to contribute into hands-on design and prototyping work that is done in teams – e.g. Arduino prototyping, graphics and sketching, or industrial design. The workshop can host a limited amount of people, and is free of charge for conference attendees registered for the conference.
Note: Once the workshop is full it will no longer be shown in the registration tool
