Latest Activity: Jun 3, 2010
The University of Sussex will host an interdisciplinary workshop on motion capture, as part of the methodologies workshop series organised by UK higher education bodies AHESSC1 (Arts & Humanities e-Science Support Centre) and JISC, in collaboration with the Motion in Place Platform Project2. These events share experience and interests across specific digital development sectors that are nurturing research in the arts and humanities.
This workshop will consist of brief plenary presentations on projects and their technical environments interspersed with informal networking sessions and ample time for questions and discussion. Motion capture resources and related software products will be available for demonstrations and project-oriented discussions. A reception organised in partnership with Lighthouse on the evening of Friday 25 June will provide further networking opportunities with regional cultural representatives.
