[Yasmin_discussions] Announcing YASMIN discussion on LIGHT


Guillermo Munoz and I thought we would do a different kind of YASMIN
discussion impulsed
by this year's "International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies
that the 68th Session of the General Assembly of the United Nations (UN) adopted
on December 20, 2013, proclaiming 2015 as "International Year of Light
and Light-based Technologies" (IYL 2015).

This theme is also the theme of The 2nd Art, Science, City
International Conference 201 in Valencia this coming October
which will bring the art, science and technology community together
around problematics of the build urban environment.

The deadline for abstracts is April 6 !!

We will also be holding a YASMIN meeting during the conference
organised by Guillermo Munoz

We look forward to your contributions to the YASMIN discussion
beginning next week on the
YASMIN discussion list

Roger Malina and Guillermo Munoz

The 2nd Art, Science, City International Conference 2015 aims to
promote interdisciplinary research on techno-scientific culture in
contemporary societies and its impact on the ways of life, paying
special attention to the impact of imaging technologies in urban

The conference is organized by the Master of Visual Arts and
Multimedia of the Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV) and the
University of the Basque Country / Euskal Herriko Unibersitatea (EHU)
to encourage and develop research projects that contribute to bridge
the gap between academia, professional practice and citizens, and also
between science and humanities.

This second edition of the conference offers an interdisciplinary
forum to discuss the most relevant experiences around the relationship
of art + science + city, placing light as the transversal structure.
Light understood from the complexity of its dual nature
(wave-particle) both in technological applications and theoretical
discourse; recognising light-based technologies and innovations that
are transforming communications, energy resources, new methods of
medical diagnosis and treatments, and their influence on our culture
and ways of visualization. That is why we propose as a general topic:

Light, more light ! = Visuality :: Energy :: Connectivity

The choice of the conference theme comes from the resolution of the
68th Session of the General Assembly of the United Nations (UN)
adopted on December 20, 2013, proclaiming 2015 as "International Year
of Light and Light-based Technologies" (IYL 2015).
Taking these themes
as reference, the congress will be structured around four thematic
panels, and the Creative Room, that will host the speakers'

Panel 1: Light [+] Visuality
Panel 2: Light [+] Energy
Panel 3: Light [+] Connectivity
Panel 4: Light [+] Light/Light + Darkness

Creative Room: Spectrum:: Light/Art [+] Science [+] City
Light [+] Innovation :: Technology Demonstrations; Information Boards

Light [+] Innovation aims at providing all ASC Conference participants
with the opportunity to meet companies and research organizations
which are actively developing light-based technologies. It will be a
space for technology demonstrations and information boards which will
encourage and facilitate the meeting of universities, business, local
associations and institutions.
