>The focus of the school will be on communities and interactive media - how
>real communities and cities are shaped by new emerging media and
>communication technologies, how new types of communities form in virtual
>environments, and how one may learn about communities through simulations
>of systems of interacting adaptive agents. A particular focus will be how
>children can develop a deep understanding for interactive technologies
>through active participation and creative learning.
>
>The school will be organized at Chalmers University of Technology in
>Göteborg, and will make use of advanced equipment for visualization and
>virtual reality, such as the CUBE at Chalmers. Lectures during the school
>will focus on:
>
>+ Communities in an urban context - virtual environments for urban
>planning, simulations of societal systems.
>
>+ Virtual communities - how multi-user virtual environments may be used
>both for cooperative work and artistic purposes.
>
>+ Communities of software agents - artificial life, cooperation in
>communities of software agents.
>
>+ Simulations and virtual environments for children.
>
>Students will also take part in projects supervised by lecturers at the
