July’s Fab14 conference in France will devote a day to machines, a topic that promises to impact the region.
The other main topics at the Fab14 conference include food, mobility, money, and access.
Systems that simplify a task in the industrial revolution are now part of our personal equipment that help us make almost anything, form big industrial machines to personal and customized machines. MACHINE day will have a display of the innovative solutions that experts and amateurs can use to build their own machines and develop new ways towards the future of how things are made.
FAB14 is taking place from July 16-22 in Toulouse, France, at the Pierre Baudis Convention Center.
The event aims to gather people from the global network to debate and build the Fab Lab Network and to forms of knowledge networking. The most distinguished investigators and specialists from all over the globe are invited, generating activities and traversal impact in the Toulouse. The motto “Fabricating Resilience” sets the stage for sharing experiences and creating a collaborative network.
Fab14 and other Fab Events serve to integrate all the knowledge acquired during the year by 1,200+ Fab Labs in the world. The participation for content is based on what the active members propose, that see the space as a showroom for their projects, workshops, ideas, and acknowledge that all the work will be seen and appreciated by everyone. The key is the networking among speakers, tutors and volunteers, and what they can make in this new world of digital fabrication.
Research papers are encouraged for this event. The Fab 14 research papers stream invites original academic writing from researchers studying the Fab Lab movement, its ambitions and its impact from a wide range of disciplines, including computer science, engineering, science and technology studies, business and management, education, urban studies, media and design, and many more.
