Live Coding and the Body Symposium in Brighton, 4th-6th July 2014

LiveCodingPosterSmallAs we announced in this post, the Live Coding and the Body Symposium will be held in the Creativity Zone at the University of Sussex on the weekend of July 5th and 6th, 2014. The Creativity Zone is a flexible multimedia space and there will be an 8 channel surround sound setup for the event, which will include various performances.

The  symposium starts on Friday 4th July 2014 with an Algorave at the Loft nightclub in the Lanes of Brighton. The Brighton Algorave has a Facebook Page.

On Saturday morning we continue on Sussex Campus (15-30 minutes out of Brighton on a bus – 9 minutes on a train) for a full day symposium that includes presentations, show cases, discussions and performances. The symposium ends on Sunday at noon with a lunch and lunch time performances and demos.

Information on how to get to Sussex/Brighton could hardly be better written than on this page here, although it specifies a different building (we will be in the Creativity Zone, not the Silverstone Building).

Brighton hotels get pretty full in the summer, so we are recommending that people book cheap accommodation on campus:

Bed and breakfast options also possible:
