The XV SIGraDi conference will take place November 16th through 18th 2011 in Santa Fe, Argentina. It is organized by the School of Architecture, Design and Urban Planning of the Universidad Nacional del Litoral through its Center of Informatics and Design, CID. The central conference theme is ¨Augmented Culture¨.
¨Augmented Culture¨ talks about a combination of interdependent social and technological meanings in a complex, multiple, interactive and interconnected context, which acknowledges that a new social and cultural paradigm is being developed.
Cultural expressions have been qualitatively augmented starting from their integration with information and communication technologies, which have dramatically enhanced not only their creative and reflective processes but also the realization and construction of cultural objects.
SIGraDi 2011 will pay attention to the field of design in all its scales as well as to art in its multiple expressions, recovering one of the most distinctive features of SIGraDi since its origin.
Papers can deal with the central theme or address other topics relevant to the field of digital media and graphics, considering the areas of interest/tracks, types of approach and work categories.
