1:35pm – 2:15pm Sarah Kenderdine – Professor and Director of iGLAM

Toward an embodied museography: public engagement with digital cultural heritage
Immersive visualisation technologies and high-fidelity digital cultural data offer us new strategies for inhabiting places, augmenting objects, sculpting cultural collections and restaging performances. These interfaces and imaging technologies, in combination with interactive schemas, are stimulating waves of engagement with tangible and intangible heritage that are redefining traditional notions of museum going and public access. From an ancient India kingdom to Chinese Kung Fu to the Atlas of Maritime Buddhism, this presentation illuminates the heritages of Asia in a wide-range of interactive installations

2:15pm – 2:55pm Gavin Winter – Visualisation and eResearch Manager at the Institute for Future Environments at Queensland University of Technology

The story of The Cube
How it was developed and the story three years on. Gavin will discuss the approach to design and development of The Cube at the Science and Engineering Centre and how, three years on, it remains the largest digital interactive learning centre in the world. He will present his vision for the next three years and how libraries, universities and major public institutions can leverage high-end visualisation technology in engaging and inspirational ways.

2:55pm – 3:15pm Afternoon Tea

3:15pm – 3:55pm Shawna Sadler – Director, Digital Library and Innovation at Deakin University

Future of Digital Scholarship
