<fontfamily><param>Arial</param><bigger><bigger>Dear friends and

the German National Research Center for Information Technology - GMD -
is organizing together with the Italian embassy and the SFG
Wissenschaftsfestival Bonn from December 11 - 12, 1999 the


Cultural Heritage and Information Technology: a new perspective?

</bold>Information technology has proven itself to be of value but what
concept of culture will develop out of the interweaving of history and
New Media? What can art and culture contribute to it and what relevance
does it have for society? The aim of the event is to discover answers
to these questions.

On Saturday the 11th of December 99 artists, researchers and curators
will discuss the relationship between Art, Culture and Technology in
Germany and in Italy and new tools for museum and audience. How do
networks, connectivity and new instruments influence artistic works and
processes - in urban space and on the Mixed Reality stage? How is IT
research influenced by working in interdisciplinary groups with
computer scientists, artists and cultural theorists.

Amongst other things MEMORIA FUTURA is presenting results of 3 european
projects - eRENA, HIPS, COMRIS - and the BMBF funded CAT project.

On Sunday the 12th international experts from art, culture, medicine
and information technology will talk about MEMORIA FUTURA in the next
century with respect to the past and the present.

We would like to invite you to this Symposium at GMD, Schloss
Birlinghoven near Sankt Augustin/Bonn.

<bold>MEMORIA FUTURA</bold> <bold>- On-line Internet event

</bold>A group of invited experts will join the symposium via Internet
as part of an experiment in researching models for integration of
different media for cultural events for the broad public. Audio & video
of the panel taking part at the physical location of the symposium are
streamed to Internet participants using G2 real server & players.

This event is one of the first activities of the recently started CAT -
Communication, Art and Technology Network project
<<> that is supported by the German Ministry
of Research and Education. Its aim is to further the development of
"media culture" by providing an "infrastructure" for linking
independent media artists with research labs and educational
institutions, as well as with TIME-industries.

<bold>MEMORIA FUTURA</bold> <bold>- European satellite transmission

</bold>With the support of EUTELSAT ( and GMD
NetSat group ( the event is broadcasted live across
Europe. Video and bilingual audio signals are transmitted from GMD -
the German National Research Center for Information Technology to
EUTELSAT Paris to be distributed via satellite. Memoria Futura is one
of the first european events linking cultural practice and cultural
