Arts, Humanities, and Complex Networks
— 5th Leonardo satellite symposium at NetSci2014

taking place in Berkeley at the Clark Kerr Campus of the University of California,
on Tuesday, June 3, 2014.

Abstract: ^
For the fifth time, it is our pleasure to bring together pioneer work in the overlap of arts, humanities, network research, data science, and information design. The 2014 symposium will follow our established recipe, leveraging interaction between those areas by means of keynotes, a number of contributions, and a high-profile panel discussion.

In our call, we are looking for a diversity of research contributions revolving around networks in culture, networks in art, networks in the humanities, art about networks, and research in network visualization. Focussing on these five pillars that have crystallized out of our previous meetings, the 2014 symposium again strives to make further impact in the arts, humanities, and natural sciences.

Running parallel to the NetSci2014 conference, the symposium provides a unique opportunity to mingle with leading researchers in complex network science, potentially sparking fruitful collaborations.

As in previous years, selected papers will be published in print, both in a Special Section of Leonardo Journal MIT-Press and in a dedicated Leonardo eBook MIT-Press (see below).

Confirmed Keynote SPEAKER: ^
Lada Adamic, Associate Professor, University of Michigan & Data Scientist, Facebook, USA

Organizing committee: ^

Maximilian Schich, Associate Professor, ATEC, The University of Texas at Dallas, USA
Roger Malina, Executive Editor at Leonardo Publications, France/USA
Isabel Meirelles, Associate Professor, Dept. of Art + Design, Northeastern University, USA
Meredith Tromble, School of Interdisciplinary Studies, San Francisco Art Institute, USA

Attendance: ^
Important note: Due to a main-conference policy change, the main NetSci2014 conference requires satellite attendees to pay at least a one day registration fee, in addition to registering to our symposium via EventBrite.

To attend our symposium,
1. pl
ease get a free EventBrite ticket at http://ahcn2014.eventbrite.com/
2. pay at least a one-day registration fee at http://www.netsci2014.net.

If you do not get an Eventbrite-ticket (but you paid the NetSci2014 fee), there is still a chance to attend, as some ticket holders may not be able to show up. We will fill these spaces in Berkeley, again on a first come, first serve basis. Priority will be given to those on our Eventbrite wait list and those registered for the main NetSci conference.
