ASU conducts 2010 Incubator Workshop

January 15, 2010

As part of the Incubator Workshop Series, initiated five years ago by the Center for Research in Computing and the Arts at University of California-San Diego, the ASU Herberger Institute School of Arts, Media and Engineering is conducting the 2010 Incubator Workshop, slated for Feb. 19-21, on the Tempe campus.

The workshop's theme is: "Beyond the instrument metaphor: new paradigms for interactive media."

The workshop brings together leading practitioners in music technology, human-computer interaction, multimedia arts and cognitive science to investigate and prototype new directions related to interactivity and interface design for time-based media. Examples of these directions include distributed interaction, collective/social embodiment, rapid prototyping technologies, and form/aesthetics from an experience-centered perspective.

Workshop goals include exploring these topics by actively collaborating, brainstorming and even building new interface technologies, models and processes, as well as grow new collaborations and sustainable working relationships that can flourish over time.

The workshop is free, but spacing is limited. Workshops taking place the evening of Feb. 19, and until 3:30 p.m., Feb. 20, are open to the AME community, collaborators and friends. If you would like to attend any of those events, please reserve a seat by contacting Cynthia Yolland at
