4th Leonardo Satellite Symposium in Copenhagen: CfP Arts, Humanities, and Complex Networks - 21 February 2013
The NetSci2013 conference will take place on June 3-7, 2013 at the Royal Library in Copenhagen, Denmark. Running parallel to the main conference, several satellite events have been organised in the same days.
The 4th Leonardo Satellite Symposium aims to bring together pioneer work in the overlap of arts, humanities, network research, data science, and information design. It will leverage interaction between those areas by means of keynotes, a number of contributions, and a high-profile panel discussion. The conference organisers are looking for a diversity of research contributions revolving around networks in culture, networks in art, networks in the humanities, art about networks, and research in network visualization. Focussing on these five pillars that have crystallized out of our previous meetings, the 2013 symposium strives to make further impact in the arts, humanities, and natural sciences.
