Pervasive and Locative Arts Network (PLAN)
A new international network of practicing artists, technology developers
and ethnographers working in pervasive and locative media.


PLAN_event
ICA. London
Tuesday 1st & Wednesday 2nd February 2005

The first PLAN event will take place at the ICA in London over two days,
and will feature talks by leading figures, technical demonstrations,
discussion sessions and live music. The aim of the event is to launch the
network, review the state of the art, bring key players in the field
together, and make initial contacts. The event will be open to the public.


CALL FOR PARTICIPATION - deadline extended
Submissions are invited. Deadline for submissions has been extended to
Friday 10th December. Guidelines for full submissions may be found below.


JOINING THE NETWORK
The network is open to individual artists or technology developers,
university or industry research labs, and other institutions. Guidelines
for joining this network may be found below.


PERVASIVE AND LOCATIVE ARTS NETWORK (PLAN)
A new international and interdisciplinary research network in pervasive
media and locative media has been funded as part of the Engineering and
Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) Culture & Creativity programme.
The network will bring together practicing artists, technology developers
and ethnographers with the aim of advancing interdisciplinary understanding
and building consortia for future collaborative projects.

Focus
A new generation of pervasive technologies is enabling people to break away
from traditional desktop PCs and games consoles and experience interactive
media that are directly embedded into the world around them. And locative
media, the combination of mobile devices with locative technologies,
supports experiences and social interaction that respond to a participant's
physical location and context. Together these convergent fields raise
possibilities for new cultural experiences in areas as diverse as
performance, installations, games, tourism, heritage, marketing and education.

Objectives
To support the formation of a new interdisciplinary research community to
investigate how the convergent fields of pervasive media and locative media
need to evolve in order to support future cultural and creative activities.
To catalogue interdisciplinary collaborations, and to review the research
agenda, methods, and community.
To identify the key research issues that need to be addressed.
To seed future projects by bringing artists, scientists and industry
together in a creative environment so that they can generate and
practically explore new ideas, and also to provide a forum for publicly
demonstrating some of these.
To produce online and offline resources to support researchers, artists,
industry and to promote public understanding of this emerging field,
including a public website, an online document repository for members and a
newsletter and DVD.
To lobby for additional funding for this area.
To link international networks.

Activity
The network will stage three major gatherings. Each gathering will have a
distinct form and focus: an initial workshop to launch the network and
assess the state of the art; a technology summer camp for artists and
technologists, including hands-on prototyping sessions using the facilities
at Nottingham's Mixed reality Laboratory; and a major public conference and
participatory exhibition as a central component of the Futuresonic 2006
festival in Manchester; as well as a supporting web site and other resources.
