ways of supporting and enhancing people's lives by diffusing information
technologies into everyday objects and settings. 17 projects will be
displaying their findings showing how we can diffuse information
technology into everyday objects and things, create new information
artefacts with new functionality, and provide new ways for people to
interact with technology. Most projects are in their final year and will
be showing the final results of their research- this is a golden
opportunity to see the cutting edge.
As well as the exhibitions of the DC projects, the programme will
comprise of talks by leading people in the DC field, and a number of
workshops organised by DC Net and Convivio - The Network for
