“ARTECH 2019 – Digital Media Art Ecosystems” is the 9th International Conference on Digital and Interactive Arts, hosted in the city of Braga, Portugal. The purpose of the conference is to promote interest in current digital culture and its intersection with art and technology as an important field of research, but also as a common space for discussion and exchange of new experiences.
Since the beginning of its operations the ARTECH Initiative has hosted hundreds of digital art installations ranging from pure infotainment applications to more formal works of art exploring different interactive and media technologies: computer vision, virtual and augmented reality, digital sound and music, among others. These facilities have been presented at various art fairs and conferences, as well as in applied art seminars, over the last 15 years.
In 2019, Artech 2019 will be held in Braga, UNESCO City for the Media Arts.
