Digital technologies and culture have become part of the fabric of our
societies. In the digital sphere, artistic creation and scientific
research are closely intertwined with the latest technological
developments. Interfaces, visualizations, social media platforms,
innovative communication devices, and data mining are significant
components of our digital heritage. Does the inclusion of digital
heritage into the museum world also enable digital arts to be finally
represented in our publicly funded institutions?

Because of the postdigital turn, digital materialities are explored
through multisensory devices, haptic interfaces and tangible user
applications. Simultaneously, through digitalization, new experiences of
(inaccessible) cultural heritage have been established with virtual and
immersive installations, 3D illusions and data visualizations. Today, we
live in ever-changing knowledge societies: how do these new digital
infrastructures influence socio-cultural transformations?

The Research Summit is a new conference format at Danube University
with the overall goal of bringing together scientists, technicians,
students and the interested public for an interdisciplinary exchange.
