    ++what is dac?++ DAC is an international conference focusing on new media
    theory and practice in critical contexts. It has nurtured a significant
    international community of young and innovative researchers, artists and
    scholars in the interdisciplinary field of new media, and has become the
    benchmark conference for research and collaborative endeavour in new
    media. DAC has always offered a specialised forum that has emphasised the
    importance of bringing together leading practitioners for the exchange of
    ideas and to develop international professional networks and knowledge
    economies. MelbourneDAC:Streaming Wor(l)ds recognises and intends to
    continue this role through the papers, panels, and forums it hosts, and
    the innovative series of collaborative workshops and events that will be
    undertaken by all conference participants. The mission of MelbourneDAC is
    to not only exchange ideas and promote new developments in digital arts
    and culture but to ensure that all participants develop relevant and
    sustainable professional communities.

    The first DAC conference was held at the University of Bergen, Norway, in
    1998 under the auspices of the Norwegian Research Council. It has since
    been hosted by the Georgia Institute of Technology (1999), The University
    of Bergen (2000), and Brown University (2001). MelbourneDAC:Streaming
    Wor(l)ds is the first time that DAC will be held in the southern
    hemisphere and will provide a regional focus within the international DAC
