Glyndŵr to host media and technology conference

The fifth International Conference on Internet Technologies & Applications (ITA13) will be hosted by Glyndŵr University.

The event runs from September 10-13 on the Wrexham campus.

Registration is underway for the biennial conference, which features a range of keynote speakers, workshops and fringe events.

It brings together researchers from academia and industry developers from digital media, computing and engineering.

The conference has been held in Wrexham since 2005 and will this year attract more than 70 delegates from over 30 countries.

The wider programme, including an exhibition of research posters, workshops and demonstrations of new technology in the main foyer, will open up the event to the public for more general interest.

in-between-ness: using art to capture a sense of self, an exhibition of paintings, film stills and moving image by contemporary artists Karen Heald and Susan Liggett at the University’s Oriel Sycharth Gallery, also forms part of the programme.

Student journalists from the Broadcasting and Journalism programme will be live blogging the conference and events around it.

Dr Richard Picking, Reader in Human-Computer Interaction and chair of the conference, said: “This high-profile event is good for the University, the local economy and it puts north east Wales on the international map as a centre of academic research.

“It’s an opportunity for experts in a wide range of disciplines to share their ideas and research.”
