Leaders in Science and Art (LISA 2013) is a conference bringing together technology and the arts in New York City on Friday, November 1, 2013. From the LISA 2013 conference program:
On November 1, 2013, 40 of the world’s top experts in digital and interactive art installation, data visualization, software art, interactive advertising, 3D printing, electronic sculpture, LED design, projection mapping, mobile art, tech wearables, app development, open source art, augmented reality, hacker art, new media curating, and digital art collecting will gather on stage at the Tishman Auditorium at The New School.
Follow the @softwareandart Twitter channel for details in real time, and (hopefully) a live stream will be announced so that you can tune in from afar if you are far away.
Thanks to Isabel Draves who is organizing this whole thing for the heads up. The Kickstarter campaign for the event was a success, with a generous donation from Google putting the event over the top. Tickets are still available if you're in NYC on November 1 and are interested in going.
