CALL FOR PAPERS

MEDIA ARCHITECTURE BIENNALE 2014: Doctoral Consortium
November 19-22, 2014
Aarhus, Denmark

http://mab14.mediaarchitecture.org/doctoral-consortium/

The Doctoral Consortium at MAB is a full-day workshop on 20 November 2014.
The colloquium session is primarily intended to highlight and confer around
the work of research students, fellows and doctoral candidates working at
the intersections of public space, digital media, socio-cultural analysis
and theory, techno-artistic practices and critique. We welcome theoretical,
analytical, and practice-based research.

Researchers undertaking scholarly work at the PhD level are invited to take
part in the Doctoral Consortium via the presentation of papers,
work-in-progress and multimedia presentations (approximately 30 minutes in
length). The Doctoral Consortium is free and open to other MAB delegates,
too.

Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:

* How to support the development of social structures with urban digital
media
* Social & Cultural Aspects of Media Architecture
* Participatory Architecture & City Planning
* Spatial Locative Media
* Case Studies of Specific Projects
* Future Trends & Prototypes
* Media Facades & Urban Displays
* Interaction Techniques & Interfaces
* Critical & Historical Perspectives on Media Architecture
* Design Processes & Methods


5 stipends of up to EUR 500 each are available for contributors to the
doctoral consortium. These will be distributed according to financial need
and quality of proposals. Please indicate that you wish to be considered for
a stipend when you apply and list arguments for why you need the support.

To apply to present your paper or presentation, please send an abstract of
your study (max 500 words) to the Doctoral Consortium Chairs, Marcus Foth
<m.foth@qut.edu.au> and Søren Pold <pold@cavi.au.dk>, with “MAB14-DC” in the
subject line, by 1 August 2014.

If you are selected to participate in the Doctoral Consortium, you will be
invited to submit a short paper (max. 4 pages, a template will be provided)
by 30 August 2014 that summarises either your overall research
work-in-progress or a specific project that you are working on, as well as
your questions and issues that you would like to discuss at the Doctoral
Consortium. These papers will be included in the non-refereed part of the
MAB 2014 conference proceedings.
