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

10.07.2015

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. http://www.fh-koeln.de

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
