The Children’s Media Conference will take place 5-7th July in Sheffield this year. A number of opportunities are available for CDE Research Engineers at this conference.

Changemakers – These are short presentations which should be provocative, fun and challenge current ways of thinking. The conference theme is ‘Making it Happen’ – diversity, inclusion and representation.

Take part in a CDE panel at the conference, discussing the work the CDE and its students are doing and its impact upon media/entertainment.

Media Lab exhibition ‘Playground’ – the opportunity to demonstrate projects you are currently working on.

Call for papers – outstanding and insightful research around children’s media consumption.

For more details on any of these opportunities please contact Jake Hobbs.

Following on from the two previous successes of the International Workshop on Movement and Computing (MOCO’14) at IRCAM (Paris, France) in 2014, as well as MOCO’15 at Simon Fraser University (Vancouver, Canada) in 2015, we are pleased to announce MOCO’16, which will be hosted in Thessaloniki, Greece. MOCO’16 will be organized by MINES ParisTech, (France) in co-operation with the Paris 8 University (France), the University of Macedonia, Thessaloniki (Greece) and Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (Greece).

The vision of MOCO’16 is to bring together academics, researchers, engineers, designers, technologists, technocrats, creative artists, anthropologists, museologists, ergonomists and other practitioners interested in the phenomenon of the symbiosis between the human and the creative process, e.g. dancer-digital medias, musician-instrument, craftsman-object etc. This symbiosis takes the form of an interactional and gravitational relationship, where the human element is both a trigger and a transmitter, connecting perception (mind/environment interaction and cognition), knowledge (theoretical understanding of a process) and gesture (semantic motor skills). MOCO’16 invites researchers that have experiences of capturing the combined key elements of perception, knowledge and gesture/movement. MOCO’16 will be of interest to artists who work on the elucidation of the intersection between art, meaning cognition and technology by unlocking the hidden components in human creativity. The workshop also provides a forum for industrial partners, for whom the movement and gestures of the workers/operators consist of key elements in terms of ergonomics and health, to see and present state-of-the-art technologies.


The 9th Annual International Conference on Computer Games Multimedia & Allied Technologies (CCAT 2016) will take place in Singapore 28th – 29th March 2016. More information on this conference can be found here.


We are interested in hearing more about any company events connected to projects you have had some involvement with. If you know of any events or activities coming up, that the CDE team should be aware of please email [email protected]. We are hoping to build on our success stories so please keep us informed.
