Journal for Research Cultures
Sophie-Carolin Wagner, Andrew Newman
The Journal for Research Cultures (JRC) is an international peer reviewed Open-Access (OA) journal published by RIAT - Research Institute for Arts and Technology. JRC concentrates on the communication and presentation of strategies of experimental, transdisciplinary and artistic research practices across epistemic cultures. It focuses on strategies rather than outcomes of research activities and extends the philosophy of openness with the intention to be accessible to a broad audience both within the and outside academic framework.

Leonardo/Olats: Art-Science collaborations & Artists in residence programmes (examples)
In this institutional presentation of the non-profit Franco-European organisation Leonardo/Olats, we shall focus on our experience in art-science collaborations and artists in residence programmes, which took place mainly within EU supported projects, and open for expanded collaborations with other geocultural zones. We shall reflect on space art and bioart, two fields that have been prominent in our activities.

Narratón: ¿Contamos historias alrededor de la reconciliación?
La Red de MediaLabs, creada en noviembre de 2016 desde las universidades EAFIT (Medellín), Javeriana (Bogotá) de Caldas (Manizales) y Jorge Tadeo Lozano (Bogotá), lanza la Narratón, una propuesta de creación colectiva en la que se busca generar contenidos multiformato que hablen de la reconciliación desde las más variadas ópticas y percepciones.

Transmedia Immersive University
The association TRANSMEDIA IMMERSIVE UNIVERSITY (TIU) was created in 2011 by French audiovisual producers in order to widely promote transmedia works in France abroad. As such, TIU’s objectives are to bring together media professionals, particularly from the audiovisual, videogame and live action world, to promote their digital transition; to reveal young talents of webcreation through the TIU Lab - a pedagogic laboratory to professionalize the sector and accompany throughout the year the creation of student projects and their insertion into the market; and to introduce digital creation to the greatest number of people through the festival I LOVE TRANSMEDIA, which is held every year at La Gaîté Lyrique in Paris.
ISEA Symposium Archives: Update and Innovative Next Steps
Wim van der Plas, Bonnie Mitchel, Thomas Asmuth / USA
Because ISEA is a nomadic symposium, organised in a different part of the world and by a different team each time it is held, archiving the symposium materials poses unique challenges. During the past 10 years, an effort has been undertaken to systematically gather all materials produced by the series of symposia, from 1988 to 2017, from Calls for Participation to final Proceedings, from Utrecht to Manizales. With this material, we have produced a rich repository of creative and scholarly research with over 8000 abstracts and artist statements, hundreds of full papers and a large number of full proceedings and catalogues. This valuable electronic and emergent art resource will be enhanced with artworks and other artifacts in the future.

Opportunities in Brazil. FAD - Digital Art Festival: 1st Edition of Digital Art Biennial 2018
Tadeus Mucelli / Brazil
Since 2007, the Digital Art Festival has spread the themes of Art through New Technologies in four pillars of action in Belo Horizonte/Brazil. (Workshops, lectures, performances and art exhibition). The proposal of this edition called the Digital Art Biennial, tends to broaden the horizons of art through new media, placing this theme in a centrality in the field of art and culture in the midst of society. The connection between the cultural spaces of the cities of Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte, and an international exchange of thinkers and makers who are habitual to the festival, is planned in this sense, but on a new spatialized scale of activities in the cities.
