Conferences coming up... and this weekend is Pooool

Conferences coming up soon - close of submission dates, in order of how close they are:

If anybody has any others specifically for FC style topics let me know. * means I added it after first blog posting.

If you are in Austria over the next couple of weekends, check out Pooool in Vienna's Museum Quarter. It's an open event that brings together an interesting polymath crowd of artists, business and software people to explore how to better match artistic needs to business needs and the technology of the net.

DRM in other words, but done from the point of view of sharing not exploiting. The difference between this attempt and others is that they are looking far deeper into property rights as agreements, and agreements as tradeable financial instruments for others like monies, and trading as market places for acquiring and creating new work. I've been asked to put my contracts experience into the mix, and it's a challenging project.

(If I find the link I'll post it, elsewise just read below for the full programme.)

Optical Machines for the New Collecting Society - Expo to the Future
october 8th to 23rd 2005
daily from 10a.m. to 10p.m
free entrance

Invitation for the creative culture, art colleges, advanced technical colleges, universities and cultural enterprises.

In the halls of the Museum Quarter's Freiraum pooool plays offers the first Expo for visualists, Users, research and developing institutions, art and culture enterprises as well as companies!

The areas of activity for the visual arts are infinite.
The exiting realm of visual media has scarcely begun!!
Where is the creative potential? Where are we going? What are the technical possibilities? How can the art-form be relevant for society? Where is the long-term advantage?

During the 10 days of this globally unique event pooool offers a survey of the diverse new forms of the Visual Arts and will inform through presentations, discussions and by experience and practice oriented exhibits. The utilization of the Visual Arts is advancing intensively the world over. Conscious awareness and commercial marketing obviously lag behind this progression.

With this Expo pooool will open a barely investigated universe. Get prepared.

Especially the cultural and artistic aspects are of growing in importance for the future. Legal questions need to be clarified, contextual and commercial collaborations promoted and above all qualitative socio-political standards need evolve, that are not only serve public interests, but the artists as well. pool podium offers a broad discussion forum to this purpose.
