„From the past into the future”

The 10th event in the “Culture and Information Technology” series focused on challenges and successes as well as development trends and perspectives in the cultural and creative industries. The event discussed research and development approaches to multimedia in museum and city information systems, multimedia exhibition concepts, media art, computer games and multimedia presentation, as well as cultural policy issues. The conference was aimed on the one hand at cultural politicians, employees of the cultural and creative industries, communication scientists, cultural and art actors, and on the other hand at computer scientists and technicians who research and develop on cultural topics. Three central questions were the focus of the various lectures and presentations:

  • Cultural policy framework
  • the influence of art and culture on shaping the future
  • the media-appropriate preparation of information and the intuitive use of media systems.

These central issues were analyzed, demonstrated and discussed primarily on the basis of interactive multimedia solutions for the cultural and creative industries.

The range of topics covered cultural policy issues as well as multimedia solutions for museums, computer games, exhibition planning systems, digital archives, event support and tourism and city information systems. Web2.0 solutions for visitor and customer loyalty as well as for the self-marketing of digital art and digital cultural assets were also up for discussion.
