HOLODECK — Holonovels: New Frontiers for Engaging Arts and Sciences in Future-Oriented Design
13 Jul 2017 - 14 Jul 2017 • Canterbury, United Kingdom
Abstract:
The workshop is colocated with The 1st EAI International Conference on Technology, Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Education (TIE'17). HOLODECK Workshop encourages creative contributions that take the form of original narrative fiction, such as science fiction prototypes (SFP), design fiction, scenario based design, or related contributions. To form a focal point for the workshop, we are asking authors to use the STAR TREK ® HOLODECK® * as inspiration for their stories and discussions. In general, a HOLODECK - a space in which simulations of people, objects and environments that seem to be real can be created and can be interacted with, is a plot device to frame stories and discussions**. The Holodeck is, of course, an imaginary concept but we hope that its futuristic nature will motivate ideas that will be transferable to our own world, enabling discussion that range from concepts for new technologies to concerns about their societal or ethical use, as many Star Trek episodes have done (see e.g. episode: Star Trek, Next Generation, Season 6, Episode 12, Ship in a Bottle).
