Nutopia Symposium – Call for Speakers

12:00 am in Conferences by bloc

Date: 12 Dec 2008
Website: www.jenniesavage.org / www.safle.com
Location: wales

Outline:

Call for Speakers – A multi disciplinary platform for artists/ archaeologists/ social scientists/ architects/ urban planners/ developers/ environmentalists/ activists and regeneration/ housing, to meet and make visible their perspectives on the 21c city; the nature of community, the human narrative, the new ´ utopia`s which we may be able to find present amongst contemporary town planning and architecture.

The symposium will be set in Cardiff`s Victorian and Edwardian Arcades, home to a host of independent shops and against the backdrop of Saint Davids 2, the city’s under- construction shopping centre, which has been designed for larger retailers, primarily multi national chains. Both architectural manifestations speak variously of social, economic and cultural shifts and provide a lens through which to explore a multiplicity of perspectives, framing our position as individuals and communities within the model of the `global` or `regenerated` city. The aim of the symposium is to create a map of perspectives revealing our thoughts on the 21c metropolitan `imagination`.

Submissions are invited for a 20 minute paper / to host a break out discussion or run a workshop or event in response to the above. Please feel free to respond with a short abstract outlining an area of research or as a project which befits the idea or possibility or new utopia`s.

Who Owns ?Your? Website?

Website: http://www.itwales.com/997361.htm
Location: wales

Outline:

Who owns the content, the software and the domain name used for your website? The answer may surprise you. Web designers need to know what pieces of intellectual property (IP) they can give away, and clients need to know how to protect their interests.

This event will give an overview of IP, including copyright, trade marks and registered designs, and will lookg at website ownership from the perspectives of client and supplier, showing how websites can create liabilities and discuss ways to reduce risk. The question of ownership and other issues have important implications for software development practices.

Stuart has particularly expertise in the technology sector where protecting, developing and monetising intellectual property is a key strategic aim. He has advised both investors and SME Mangers on a large number of early stage and start up investments, particularly those involving regional venture capital funds.

The event is FREE to attend, however advance booking is required.

To book your place visit http://www.itwales.com/997361.htm or e-mail email events@itwales.com

Alternatively you can contact Rob or Judith at ITWales Bangor on 01248 388245
