INVENCAO is an opportunity for those working at the creative edge of the arts, sciences and technology to collaborate in the transdisciplinary development of ideas and innovative strategies for life in the next millennium. Invenção is a "seeding" event that seeks to identify key questions and issues that can lead to the radical transformation of culture.

Just as artists increasingly work with the metaphors of science, so scientists are employing forms of representation, such as visualisation, which owe much to research in the digital arts. As art is transformed by interactivity, so science increasingly recognises the subjectivity of the  observer. In turn, technology informs our aesthetic and epistemological structures and is engendering new processes of perception, communication and cognition.

INVENCAO will examine the consequences of this convergence of art, science and technology on our sense of self and human identity, on consciousness, community and the city, as well as on learning and leisure.

The organising committee consists of: Arlindo Machado (chair), Roy Ascott, Roger Malina and Alain Mongeau. The scientific committee is: Diana Domingues,Claudia Giannetti, Eduardo Kac, Marcos Novac and Margarita Schultz.
