The network aims to support the formation of a new interdisciplinary research
community to investigate how the convergent fields of pervasive media and locative
media need to evolve in order to support future cultural and creative activities.
Specific network objectives are:
• To review the scope of the research that is currently being carried out in these fields through a focused workshop, leading to an integrated ‘state of the art’ survey paper.
• To identify the key research issues that need to be addressed in order to further develop pervasive and locative media to support culture and creativity, leading to a series of discussion ‘white papers’.
• To seed future projects by bringing artists, scientists and industry together in a creative environment so that they can generate and practically explore new ideas, and also to provide a forum for publicly demonstrating some of these.
• To produce online and offline resources to support researchers, artists, industry and to promote public understanding of this emerging field.
