The fourth International Conference on the Histories of Media Art, Science and Technology, Rewire, will be hosted by FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology) and held in Liverpool, UK, from 28-30 September, 2011, In collaboration with academic partners: Liverpool John Moores University, CRUMB at the University of Sunderland, the Universities of the West of Scotland and Lancaster, and the Database of Virtual Art at the Dept. for Image Science, Danube University.

The Open Hardware Scholarship







    CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: The Open Hardware Scholarship!
    Do you have the next big Open Hardware idea, but just don?t have the funds
    for it?

    The Open Hardware Summit (OHS) is announcing its first Open Hardware
    scholarship this year! The purpose of the OHS scholarship is to support
    emerging artists/inventors and developers by providing funding for works
    that are released as Open Source Hardware. Granting these funds is an
    opportunity to draw attention to the Open Source Hardware movement, to give
    back to the DIY community, and to give you the chance to join a growing
    roster of gamechangers in Open Source Hardware history. If you have a
    project that is in the spirit of the OHS and supports the OHSW definition,
    we welcome your submissions.

    PRIZE
    Upwards of $2000 will be awarded. The scholarship is made available by the
    generous individuals and sponsors who have made the Open Hardware Summit
    possible.

    PUBLIC VOTE
    The winner will be chosen by the public. All projects will be viewable
    online and votes will be collected during the week of the summit. People
    will be able to vote on their favorite project remotely or onsite. A check
    will be presented to the winning artist/group at the conclusion of OHS on
    September 15th at the New York Hall of Science

    INSTRUCTIONS
    1. upload a 30 second (maximum) video clip to youtube that showcases the
    concept of your project. The title of the video MUST be the title of the
    work

    2. include a short paragraph in the description of the video. Your
    description must start with the following sentence, and go on to explain
    your project in less than 500 characters.
    Example:

    awarded by the Open Hardware Summit 2011.

    NOTES:
    Please feel free to email hirumi.n@gmail.com if you have any questions.

    Where does the money come from? We had $2,000 USD left over from our funds
    last year and we thought the best way to use it is to give it back to the
    community.

    Good luck!

Conference ‘eSphere: Living in the cloud’  at STRP Festival reflects on a new networked reality
