[Nettime-nl] Conferentie print/pixel, Rotterdam, 12-13 mei


PRINT/PIXEL

an international conference on the shifting relation between electronic
and paper publishing. With e-books, print-on-demand and other hybrid
media, they both can no longer be separated, but complement each other.
What advanced cross-media and computer-generative publication and design
strategies exist beyond copy-paste? How do new technological
developments and the crisis of print news media change the world of
designers, editors and publishers?  International cutting-edge
designers, software developers, publishers and researchers will give
insight into their own solutions and discuss the future of publishing.

Organized by the research project Communication in a Digital Age
Piet Zwart Institute, Willem de Kooning Academy Rotterdam University
