        Subject: CfP: Media Architectuur Biennale 23-27 Nov. 2020 Amsterdam/Utrecht

Dear all,

We are happy to announce that the 5th edition of the Media Architecture
Biennale (https://mab20.mediaarchitecture.org/) will take place in
Amsterdam and Utrecht on 23-27 November 2020. It is the world’s premier
event on media architecture, urban interaction design, digital
placemaking, urban media art and urban informatics. The MAB20 comprises
various elements such as workshops, symposia, presentations, tours and
exhibitions, and a partnership with the Amsterdam Light Festival. There
are many ways to get engaged and different calls that might be of interest.

The theme of the 2020 edition is #Futures Implied, which opens up
investigations into future scenarios implied in today’s urban
technologies like digital platforms and smart city technologies. How can
we shape technologies to respond to their surroundings, contributing to
cities that are both socially and ecologically sustainable? The point of
departure is that technologies are never neutral enablers, they are
built upon numerous spoken and unspoken assumptions about urban life,
each with their own implications for both social relations as well as
their effect on the natural ecosystem.

We already have a number of calls that are open, with more to follow
soon. Please find our Call for Papers here:
https://mab20.mediaarchitecture.org/calls/call-for-papers/. Topics of
interest include (but are not limited to):

·       The Aesthetics and Poetics of Responsive Urban Spaces
·       Citizens’ digital rights in the era of platform ecologies
·       Playful & Artistic Civic Engagement
·       Restorative Cities
·       More-Than-Human Cities

For more information, check out our website mab20.org.  The calls 
with the earliest closing deadlines are:

·   call for the workshop organizers (deadline: 18 January 2020)
·   call for concepts for the Amsterdam Light Festival (deadline: 18
January 2020)

For any questions, please contact info@mab20.org,
