Arts, Humanities, and Complex Networks
— 4th Leonardo satellite symposium at NetSci2013

taking place in Copenhagen at DTU – Technical University of Denmark,
on Tuesday, June 4, 2013.

Video introduction: ^

This video was first presented at BNF in Paris on April 19, 2013

Abstract: ^
The overall mission of the symposium is to bring together pioneer work in the overlap of arts, humanities, network research, data science, and information design. The 2013 symposium will leverage interaction between those areas by means of keynotes, a number of contributions, and a high-profile panel discussion.

In our call, we are looking for a diversity of research contributions revolving around networks in culture, networks in art, networks in the humanities, art about networks, and research in network visualization. Focussing on these five pillars that have crystallized out of our previous meetings, the 2013 symposium strives to make further impact in the arts, humanities, and natural sciences.

Running parallel to the NetSci2013 conference, the symposium provides a unique opportunity to mingle with leading researchers in complex network science, potentially sparking fruitful collaborations.

As in previous years, selected papers will be published in print, both in a Special Section of Leonardo Journal MIT-Press and in a dedicated Leonardo eBook MIT-Press (see below).

Confirmed keynote speakers include: ^
Paolo Ciuccarelli, Scientific Director, DensityDesign Research Lab & Associate Professor,
Politecnico di Milano, Italy
Scot Gresham-Lancaster, Co-founder, The Hub & ATEC faculty, The University of Texas at Dallas, USA
Denny Vrandečić, Project Lead Wikidata, Wikimedia, Germany

Organizing committee: ^
