You still may take part in [RAM] 7:Models of Collaboration in Minsk !

Call for participation:
RAM7 - Models of Collaboration
deadline 15 January 2005 (negotiable)

hosted by Minsk Centre for Innovative Practice in collaboration with CRAC
and RAM-Network

RAM7 - Models of Collaboration will take place in Minsk 5-9 March 2005.
Minsk, where is it? Why in Minsk?

Belarus exists in the state of permanent isolation, but whether
isolation in the world of network technologies is possible?
RAM7 will play a role of temporary multi-disciplinary platform where local
and global, hidden and evident, main stream and marginal aspects of New
Media culture will meet. The aim of this workshop is to stimulate the
process of active learning, exchange of ideas, information and energy
between «hidden place» and Network Universe.
The starting points are: to provide an opportunity for independent
researchers and practitioners to explore current local problems, and
initiatives; to learn the international experience for modifying
existing situation by analyzing different models of multidiciplinary

The workshop will focus on studying examples of collaboration models, and
will pay more intensive attention on topics related to network
based/self-organized educational attempts and art & science

During RAM7 workshop we plan to test and use mobile phone technologies,
internet-works and more. Presentations and theory lectures will be open
for public.

A program of tutorials will cover topics: working group for
Anti-University development (self-organized educational attempts); working
group for investigation of art&science collaboration; working group,
focusing on experiments in collective authorship.

We have already received the wide international response, but we stil need
your help and participation.
We are looking for internationally recognized experienced experts
willing to share experiences in the next themes:
• Anti-Universities. Self-organized Educational Attempts
• Art and Science. Organizations, projects, strategies.
• Open source, Social Networking Software
• Theory of collaboration
• Collective authorship- interactive art forms that focus on
relationships between participants.

Payment for travel and accommodation for participants from Russia, Ukraine
and Sweden is possible.
