CALL FOR PAPERS – #di2014
International Conference on Digital Intelligence
Sept. 17-19, 2014 - Nantes, France
www.di2014.org - @DIConf2014

Digital Intelligence 2014 (#di2014) is a new international scientific and interdisciplinary conference dedicated to digital society and cultures. The challenge is to bring together researchers from various disciplines (ICT, humanities, biology & health...) in order to discuss and contribute to shape a new scientific and cultural paradigm.
#di2014 will be jointly organized with Scopitone, the main French Festival on digital arts and electronic music (Scopitone 2014, Sept. 16-21, 2014).
The program will be built around four main components: plenary invited talks, contributed talks in parallel sessions, artistic sessions, performances and works shared with the Scopitone festival and finally sessions and events related to the (real) economy of digital cultures.

Program co-chairs: Milad Doueihi (Canada) & Frédéric Benhamou (France)
Conference co-chairs: Francky Trichet, Université de Nantes (France) & Stéphane Roche, Université Laval (Canada)
