American Society for Cybernetics 2019 Conference
June 24-26, 2019, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada
The 2019 annual conference of the American Society for Cybernetics will be held June 24 to 26 in the Department of Theatre and Film at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the Musqueam people. All sessions will be held on campus and on-campus accommodations are available.
The ASC 2019 Conference will include a varied program of sessions on the theme of Acting Cybernetically, including participatory ‘playshops’, installations and performances as well as traditional academic papers. Some of these activities will be featured in our special event: An Afternoon at the Fun Palace, inspired by the visionary work of Gordon Pask, Cedric Price and Joan Littlewood. ASC conferences seek to feature research and evoke discussions that include more than one perspective or which are comparative, cross-cultural, interdisciplinary, or transdisciplinary in conceptualization, scope, or design. Participants will have publication opportunities following the conference in special issues of academic journals and the possibility of inclusion as a book chapter. All presentations and performances will be recorded for future use including in online education.
The 2019 ASC conference will be held immediately before the 2019 ISSS Conference located in Corvallis, Oregon approximately 400 miles to the south, allowing participants the opportunity to attend both. In addition a vibrant pre- and post-conference program is planned to allow participants to enjoy the diverse experiences available in the Vancouver area.
The organizing committee of the ASC 2019 conference is very much looking forward to receiving you at the conference venue and hope you will have memorable experiences in North America’s Cascadia region in summer 2019!
