[Nettime-nl] Reminder: print/pixel, 12+13 mei

International conference on the shifting relation between electronic and
paper publishing.
Rotterdam, Netherlands 12+13 May 2009

With e-books, print-on-demand and other hybrid media, online and offline
media 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
