========  IPCITY SUMMER SCHOOL 2009 - 22-25/09/2009 VIENNA =========

             IPCity Summer School 2009
         September 22-25, 2009 in Vienna, Austria.

The IPCity project invites international graduate students to join us
for the 2009 summer school. Students will be given the opportunity to
work alongside experts in the field of urban mixed realities. The summer
school will bring  together students from a range of backgrounds
including: architecture, urban planning, computer games design and
information technology with  the aim of creating an atmosphere similar
to those found in leading research labs.

The Summer School 2009 will introduce students to the IPCity project,
in particular the core theories, key concepts and underlying
technologies. In workshop groups students will get hands-on
experience on novel application areas including: urban life and
social gathering, environmental awareness, urban renewal scenarios,
mixed-reality gaming and community story-telling in urban

Together with workshop supervisors students will create their own
content for existing mixed reality systems using provided building
blocks, conduct tests and field trials, and on the last day present
their groups' work to the other workshop participants!

The Summer School 2009 is part of the IPCity Integrated Project on
Interaction and Presence in Urban Environments which is an EU funded
Sixth Framework programme (FP-2004-IST-4-27571). The aim of
the IPCity project is to investigate analytical and technological
approaches to presence in real life settings. This includes extending
the presence by taking into account the participative and social
constitution of presence as well as the multiplicity and distribution of
events in time and space.

The Application deadline for graduate (Msc., PhD.) students is August 1,
2009! Notification of acceptance will be made on August 15, 2009. The
working language of the Summer School is English, 3 ECTS credits can be
awarded. There are a limited number of travel grants available to
help pay for some or all of the costs involved in attending the
summer school!
