Hybrid Talks XXXV "Transience"
> 9 May 2019, Hybrid Lab, TU Berlin, Germany


The condition of transience affects humans and technology to the same degree. What’s new and innovative today can just a short time later be old and irrelevant. Depending on one’s perspective, transience can relate to a shorter or longer period of time. Narratives and manners of viewing the past can also change with time, are thus also subject to transience. Music is heard differently, historical moments are assessed differently and many things are simply forgotten. We’ll find out how to constructively deal with transience at the 36th Hybrid Talks through the lens of the history of technology, from the perspective of music and contemporary performance art, and from the points of views of other disciplines.

Denkwerkstätte Graz 2019: Folgen der Digitalisierung im Dienstleistungssektor
> 21.-22. Mai 2019, FH Joanneum, Graz, Austria


Die Denkwerkstätte Graz wird sich mit den Folgen der Digitalisierung im privaten wie auch öffentlichen Service- und Dienstleistungsbereich befassen. Konkret stellt sich die Frage, wie sich die zunehmende Verbreitung und verstärkte Abhängigkeit von (vernetzten) IKT Produkten, Dienstleistungen und Prozessen sowie auch so genannte „disruptive Technologien“ (z.B. Big Data, Fahrassistenzsysteme, Virtual/Augmented Reality, Gamification, Künstliche Intelligenz, Algorithmen) auf die Beschäftigten und den Arbeitsmarkt im Dienstleistungssektor auswirkt. Die Denkwerkstätte Graz steht in der Tradition einer international orientierten, interdisziplinären Auseinandersetzung mit aktuellen Themen der Arbeits- und Berufssoziologie.

Austauschforum "Transdisziplinarität: Stärken!"
> 12.-13. Juni 2019, Allianz Forum, Berlin, Deutschland


Transdisziplinarität birgt das Potenzial, komplexe Nachhaltigkeitsfragen zu erforschen und somit zu gesellschaftlichen Lösungen beizutragen. Ziel ist es, das Silo-Denken zwischen Disziplinen und Praxis aufzubrechen und einen regen Wissensaustausch verschiedener Akteure anzuregen. Den Anspruch, mit vielen verschiedenen Interessengruppen gemeinsam zu forschen, wirft viele Fragen auf, die in jetzigen transdisziplinären Projekten erkennbar werden. Das Forum richtet sich an alle, die an der Schnittstelle von Wissenschaft und Praxis arbeiten, die transdisziplinär forschen, oder transdisziplinäre Prozesse gestalten (wollen). Ob Forschungsgruppe, Beratungsunternehmen, zivilgesellschaftliche Organisation oder Politiker*in – alle Akteure sind herzlich hierzu eingeladen.

Sustainability: Transdisciplinary Theory, Practice, and Action
> 16-18 October 2019, Mississauga, Ontario, Canada


Our world is at the tipping point. We have undermined the conditions for sustainable existence, with no choice but to pull ourselves from the brink. Sustainability is the core challenge of our era. No academic discipline, corporation, country, first nation, government, or organization can achieve sustainability alone. We all have a role to play in the path towards sustainability.

Association for Interdisciplinary Studies Conference 2019
> 24-26 October 2019, University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands


The annual AIS conference will be hosted for the first time in Europe, by the Institute for Interdisciplinary Studies (IIS) at the University of Amsterdam (UvA), The Netherlands. The theme of the conference will be ‘Interdisciplinarity in Global Contexts’. Since a defining feature of interdisciplinarity is not to abstract or isolate problems but rather to approach them in their real-world contexts, this conference theme asks participants to consider the global and local contexts of interdisciplinary education and research.

Deadline for proposals: 1 April 2019

AAAI Conference on Human Computation and Crowdsourcing (HCOMP 2019)
> 28-30 October 2019, Skamania Lodge, near Portland, USA


HCOMP is the premier venue for disseminating the latest research findings on human computation and crowdsourcing. While artificial intelligence (AI) and human-computer interaction (HCI) represent traditional mainstays of the conference, HCOMP believes strongly in inviting, fostering, and promoting broad, interdisciplinary research. The field is particularly unique in the diversity of disciplines it draws upon and contributes to, ranging from human-centered qualitative studies and HCI design, to computer science and artificial intelligence, to economics and the social sciences, all the way to digital humanities, policy, and ethics. We promote the exchange of advances in human computation and crowdsourcing not only among researchers, but also engineers and practitioners, to encourage dialogue across disciplines and communities of practice.
