I am attending this interesting conference right now:

re:place 2007

The Second International Conference on the Histories of Media, Art,
Science and Technology

Location: Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin
Date: 15-18 November 2007

Information: http://tamtam.mi2.hr/replace

An interdisciplinary forum of over 70 researchers and artists from all over the world, re:place 2007 presents multiple historical relations between art, science and technology. The title ‘re:place’ refers to the sites and the migration of artistic and knowledge production. This theme is highlighted during the panel discussions and poster sessions, particularly in the ‘Place Studies’ stream which looks at specific historical instances and settings. Special attention will be given to alternatives to the ‘Western’ historical paradigms through presentations about art-science relations in the former Soviet Union, Africa, and Latin America. The conference includes general forum discussions on interdisciplinary research strategies, as well as keynote lectures by Lorraine Daston and Siegfried Zielinski.

Conference partners include Leonardo, Database of Virtual Art at Danube University Krems’ Center for Image Science, Ludwig Boltzmann Institute Media.Art.Research, Helmholtz-Zentrum für Kulturtechnik at Humboldt Universität Berlin, and others.
