Brussels, 22-25 February 2012

The Co-position research meeting focuses on digital tools for arranging texts and other graphic elements: How can we re-imagine lay-out from scratch? What tools do we need to support decentralized collaboration? How can we understand what workflows, distributions of work and media are coded into our tools? Can we bring canvas editing, dynamic lay-outs, web-to-print and Print On Demand together in more interesting ways? What kind of messages do we propagate and how does this change the tools we need?
Co-position gathers developers, designers and theoreticians from all over Europe to imagine future digital tools together. Participants are invited to work together during four intense days of presentations, discussions, development sessions and prototyping.
