Conference on libraries and interactive tech coming to NC State in November

Conference on libraries and interactive tech coming to NC State in November

Be a part of Liberact! Liberact (Libraries & Interactive Technologies) is a free, two-day participatory conference that focuses on the interaction of users and technology in libraries and museums including immersive environments, large-scale visualization, and interactive/gesture-based computing.

The Libraries is pleased to host the fifth Liberact conference at the Hunt Library on November 14-15. Liberact offers practitioners and researchers involved in immersive and large-scale visual technologies the chance to meet, build community, and gain inspiration for collaboratively advancing this area of study and scholarly production.

Like earlier Liberact events, this conference will focus on implementing, supporting, and maintaining visualization and interactive technologies and the content produced within/for them. We broadly define these technologies to include systems, applications, and tools like: interactive gesture- and motion-based systems, large scale visualization environments, 3D and virtual reality environments, and emergent areas. We invite you to participate in our workshops and  facilitate exploration of partnerships between institutions, especially in the sharing and transfer of content. 

Building on excitement and ideas flowing from similar meetings like THE CAAV, the sessions at Liberact will utilize the variety of spaces, walls, and technologies in the Hunt Library for an applied and engaged experience. 

We invite proposals in the form of:

  • 20-min. presentation sessions
  • Lightning talks
  • (Digital) Posters
  • Project/Product demos

Submit proposals here. The deadline for proposals is Friday, Sept. 13, 2019.

Liberact is supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
