Digital Creativity, Industry and Culture (DCIC 2022)
University of York, Heslington, York YO10 5DD
DCIC 2022 is a forum for researchers and practitioners to share insights on the impact of interactive, immersive and artificially intelligent technologies on creative practices and the industries, societies and cultures through which they emerge. DCIC aims to create a sense of shared multi-disciplinary identity and foster new interdisciplinary links, by combining three interconnected perspectives:
- technology-driven creative practices and technology advancements driven by creative practices
- working practices and economic development in the creative and cultural industries
- digital culture and society
The conference format has been designed to maximise the potential for crossing disciplinary boundaries and encouraging multi-disciplinary connections and debates. Each conference session will be curated in such a way as to include related complementary contributions from each of the three perspectives mentioned above as well as a fair distribution of topics.
DCIC expects a significant participation from industry partners, facilitated through the University of York’s rich network of collaborators maintained through the sponsoring bodies listed further below. It will thus be a platform for conversations and debates between academic research and industry R&D and practice.
