Hello Fellow CTMT Members,
For our meeting on Wed 9th August, I have put together a short workshop plan for developing new research teams within CTMT. Specifically, we’d like to put together 2 or more teams, and we’d like to frame one or both around gender and diversity equality in new media technology. This is not to pre-determine a focus, but to consider what aspects of our research might speak to these issues by means of topic, team constitution, or even an extension of existing work that extends its focus in this area. For example, what questions might we already be asking simply because of the composition of our team and how that influences what we research? What questions could we be asking? How could a focus on diversity and inclusion point us towards more interesting and significant research in the fields in which we already operate?
All are welcome, regardless of research focus, and there will be room to discuss the broader issue of research teams, and how we might productively form and re-form them to provide each other with support, inspiration and critical mass within CTMT.
I will also discuss and frame issues of team formation in relation to future grant development, with a particular focus on ARC grants from my perspective as a member of the ARC College of Experts.
Professor Kim Vincs is a Senior Principal Research Fellow within the Centre for Transformative Media Technologies at Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, Australia. Her research uses creative practice methods drawn from dance technology to develop new uses and use cases for technologies such as motion capture, volumetric capture and virtual and augmented reality. Her research includes 8 Australian Research Council Discovery and Linkage projects in movement analysis and dance technology and 50+ industry collaborations integrating scientific and artistic approaches across fields as diverse as dance, mathematics, cognitive psychology and software engineering.
Professor Vincs was Co-Founder and Director of the Centre for Transformative Media Technologies and Professor of Interactive Media at Swinburne University of Technology, and, prior to moving to Swinburne, Founder/Director of the Deakin Motion.Lab at Deakin University. She is now leading a new 3- year project funded by the Australian Research Council Discovery Program investigating the use of volumetric technologies in art, including new forms of volumetric interaction design. Professor Vincs is also a dancer, choreographer and interactive media artist with over 30 years experience in choreography and creative technology.
