University of Sussex Motion Capture Methodologies Workshop
25th-26th June, Lighthouse, Brighton

The University of Sussex is delighted to host an interdisciplinary workshop
on motion capture, as part of the methodologies workshop series organised
by UK higher education bodies AHESSC (Arts & Humanities e-Science Support
Centre, www.ahessc.ac.uk) and JISC (Joint Information Systems Committee,
www.jisc.ac.uk), in collaboration with the Motion in Place Platform Project
(www.motioninplace.org). These events share experience and interests across
specific digital development sectors that are nurturing research in the
arts and humanities.

The workshop will take place on June 25th-26th at Lighthouse in central
Brighton (www.lighthouse.org.uk). It will consist of brief plenary
presentations on projects and their technical environments interspersed
with informal networking sessions and ample time for questions and
discussion. Motion capture resources and related software products will be
available for demonstrations and project-oriented discussions. A reception
organised in partnership with Lighthouse on the evening of Friday 25th will
provide further networking opportunities with regional cultural
representatives. Workshop presenters are as follows:

University of Edinburgh

participants in total. We therefore request prompt notification from
persons wishing to attend for the two full days (beginning at 9:30am Friday
25th and ending at 4pm on Saturday 26th). Given high demand and limited
