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. It will be of
relevance to people working in the arts, games, education, tourism,
heritage, science and engineering.

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
