Ignite10!

leave a comment »

Some cross-promotion here, just in case anyone reading this is interested in a postgraduate research conference being organised by QUT‘s Creative Industries faculty in late October 2010 (disclaimer: I’m on the organising committee): Ignite10! Looking for Trouble? Intended for postgraduates from Creative Industries at QUT, but open to other disciplines and universities too, Ignite aims to showcase the diversity of research across the faculty and develop connections between its postgraduates and the faculty itself. All going well I will have a poster displaying some of the various visualisations I’ve been working on this year at the conference (as seen in previous entries and on flickr), and there will be a range of presentations from across the disciplines featuring in Creative Industries, including creative writing, film, journalism, media and communication, visual arts, urban informatics, and music. Showcasing postgraduate student work from QUT Creative Industries, the conference will be a mix of student papers, posters, panels and roundtables, creative works, and performances over three days: 27-29 October, QUT Creative Industries Precinct, Kelvin Grove, Brisbane. I presented at the previous conference in October 2008, and recommend it as a venue for presenting research or work-in-progress in a supportive environment, and also as an opportunity to learn about projects in other Creative Industries disciplines or to meet fellow postgraduates.

The call for papers is out now, with submissions due next Friday 28 May. More information can be found at the conference website and questions and queries can be sent to this email address.
