Clash of Realities – International Conference on the Art, Technology and Theory of Digital Games


November 3-4, 2015 – Cologne Germany

Experts from the humanities, science and research, economics and politics will discuss current questions concerning the artistic design, technological development and social perception of digital games. For the sixth time and unique in Europe, this artistic-scientific research conference offers the opportunity for an interdisciplinary exchange which will generate synergies and provide an array of intellectual impulses.

Scholars, social scientists, game developers, specialists in education and media, up-and-coming creative talents, students and all those interested in and excited by digital games are invited.

The opening of this English language conference on November 3 will be marked by several Summits featuring specialized lectures, project presentations, panel discussions and workshops concerning the following themes:

• Beyond Reality! – New Perspectives in Game Development Summit
• Ethics in Digital Games – Games and Media Education Summit
• Creating Storyworlds – Film & Games Summit
• Teaching Game Studies – Game Studies Summit

On November 4, internationally renowned speakers, players and pioneers from education, research, media and creative industries will illuminate the thematic key subjects discussed in the Summits from transdisciplinary and multiperspectival approaches. The Clash of Realities Conference is organized by the Cologne University of Applied Sciences.

Responsible for the Clash of Realities concept and the program‘s presentation and design are the Cologne Game Lab and the Institut für Medienforschung und Medienpädagogik of the Cologne University of Applied Sciences, the ifs internationale filmschule köln GmbH, the Institut für Medienkultur und Theater of the University of Cologne, the Electronic Arts and AG Games. Supporter: Film und Medien Stiftung NRW.

The Cologne University of Applied Sciences is the largest of its kind in Germany. 23,000 students are taught by approximately 420 professors. CUAS offers some 80 courses – approximately half each in engineering sciences or humanities and social sciences: from architecture to electrical engineering and mechanical engineering, design, restoration, information science, languages and social work through to business law, media informatics and applied natural sciences. The Cologne University of Applied Sciences is a full member of the European University Association (EUA) and belongs to the UAS 7 association of German universities of applied sciences.

Im Focus: Researchers Discover New Anti-Cancer Protein

An international team of researchers has discovered a new anti-cancer protein. The protein, called LHPP, prevents the uncontrolled proliferation of cancer cells in the liver. The researchers led by Prof. Michael N. Hall from the Biozentrum, University of Basel, report in “Nature” that LHPP can also serve as a biomarker for the diagnosis and prognosis of liver cancer.

The incidence of liver cancer, also known as hepatocellular carcinoma, is steadily increasing. In the last twenty years, the number of cases has almost doubled...

Im Focus: Researchers at Fraunhofer monitor re-entry of Chinese space station Tiangong-1

In just a few weeks from now, the Chinese space station Tiangong-1 will re-enter the Earth's atmosphere where it will to a large extent burn up. It is possible that some debris will reach the Earth's surface. Tiangong-1 is orbiting the Earth uncontrolled at a speed of approx. 29,000 km/h.Currently the prognosis relating to the time of impact currently lies within a window of several days. The scientists at Fraunhofer FHR have already been monitoring Tiangong-1 for a number of weeks with their TIRA system, one of the most powerful space observation radars in the world, with a view to supporting the German Space Situational Awareness Center and the ESA with their re-entry forecasts.

Following the loss of radio contact with Tiangong-1 in 2016 and due to the low orbital height, it is now inevitable that the Chinese space station will...

Im Focus: Alliance „OLED Licht Forum“ – Key partner for OLED lighting solutions

Im Focus: Mars' oceans formed early, possibly aided by massive volcanic eruptions

Oceans formed before Tharsis and evolved together, shaping climate history of Mars

A new scenario seeking to explain how Mars' putative oceans came and went over the last 4 billion years implies that the oceans formed several hundred million...

Im Focus: Tiny implants for cells are functional in vivo

For the first time, an interdisciplinary team from the University of Basel has succeeded in integrating artificial organelles into the cells of live zebrafish embryos. This innovative approach using artificial organelles as cellular implants offers new potential in treating a range of diseases, as the authors report in an article published in Nature Communications.

In the cells of higher organisms, organelles such as the nucleus or mitochondria perform a range of complex functions necessary for life. In the networks of...
