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: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Shape matters when light meets atom

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
