This session is a part of a series entitled POLYLOGUES organized by the 
International center for art and new technologies (CIANT) in Prague & New

media studies (Charles University) in cooperation with Georgia Institute
of 
Technology & MARCEL network. It aims to stimulate interdisciplinary
exchange 
of ideas via sessions moderated from Prague while having guest speakers
from 
all over the world.
We hope to create a bridge between countries that will facilitate 
intercultural or rather intercontinental and interdisciplinary exchanges
in 
the fields of art and new technologies. All sessions will be recorded and

made available to general public in the archive.
