The Attic (a name which commemorates our first physical location) is, first and foremost, a site for the research students of the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester: a virtual community which aims to include all students, be they campus-based and full-time, or distance-learning and overseas. But we welcome contributions from students of museum studies - and allied subject areas - from outside the School and from around the world. Here you will find a lot of serious stuff, like exhibition and research seminar reviews, conference alerts and calls for papers, but there's also some 'fluff'; the things that inspire, distract and keep us going. After all, while we may be dead serious academic types, we're human too.

ideas and concepts in culture, heritage and the arts: digital arts, sound,
music, film and animation, 2D and 3D imaging, European projects,

EVA London 2009 will be co-sponsored by the Computer Arts Society, a Special
Interest Group of the British Computer Society, and by the BCS.

We invite offers of papers. For proposals we require only a summary of the
paper on not more than one page. It must be submitted electronically
according to the instructions on the EVA London website,

Papers may be on any aspect of EVA London's focus on visualisation for the
arts and culture, broadly interpreted, including technology, use and users,
creative, visual and performing arts and music, strategy, organisational
implications and policy. Papers are peer reviewed and may be edited. They
will be published as hard copy and online.

We hope to offer bursaries again to attend EVA London for those who do not
have access to grants.

EVA London 2009's conference themes will include, but are not limited to:

* Enabling the arts through digital technologies
* Crossing disciplinary boundaries
* Visualising ideas and concepts
* Moving and still images in museums and galleries
* Web 2.0 technologies in cultural heritage organizations
