Event plan for Workshop@Lincoln

The Workshop@Lincoln event is planned for the 25th-26th March 2014. It is themed (mainly) around movement and gesture based input devices, and will comprise some talks and introductory events. The core of the activity will be centred around a “hack” style event in which participants will work in small groups on design and/or prototyping exercises around a number of sub-themes and software (though participants are also encouraged to introduce their own). The workshop is structured such that participants may attend for only 1 day, if required.

The proposed sub-themes are:

  1. Interfaces for Performance (Leaders: Duncan Rowland, Kate Sicchio)
  2. Mobility Impaired Performance (Leader: Kathrin Gerling)
  3. Physical Games in Playgrounds (Leader: Grethe Mitchell)
  4. Performative interfaces to seed social encounters (Leader: John Shearer)
  5. Audience and Movement Games (Leader: Patrick Dickinson)
