The conference theme this year is to promote discussion around new collaborative environments, collective knowledge and redefining disciplinary boundaries. The conference, hosted by Cambridge with its fantastic choice of conference venues, will take place from Sunday 14th September to Wednesday 17th September. Visit the Conference website at http://www.rsd.cam.ac.uk/drha08/ for information on registration. Keynote talks will be given by: * Sher Doruff, Research Fellow (Art, Research and Theory Lectoraat) and Mentor at the Amsterdam School for the Arts * Alan Liu, Professor of English, University of California Santa Barbara * Sally Jane Norman, Director of the Culture Lab, Newcastle University. Plus round table discussions, a panel relating to 'Second Life' and a special forum on 'Engaging research and performance through pervasive and locative arts projects' together with an open discussion led by Steve Benford, Professor of Collaborative Computing, University of Nottingham. There will be particular emphasis on interdisciplinary collaboration and theorising around practice. Installations and performances will focus on the same theme. Cambridge's venues range from the traditional to the contemporary all situated within walking distance of central departments, museums and galleries. The conference will be based around Cambridge University's Sidgwick Site, particularly the West Road concert hall.
