ia fictions

online research meetings

project illustration
i designed and develop a website for an international conference at the height of covid. i also ended up doing a lot of administration work. biggest learning? teachers also submit their papers late.

I assisted my thesis advisor Alexandre Gefen in organizing and hosting an international conference on the relationship between AI and fiction.

The conference was switched from in-person to online, which meant that I now had to establish a digital space which could act as the nexus of participants' engagements and contributions.

We decided that, rather than unilateral, live deliveries of the talks, these would be pre-recorded and uploaded to YouTube and the live sessions were reserved from Q&As. Additionally, an online gallery was established featuring works of digital artists, and a collaborative pad set-up to build a shared library of references.

I designed and built it using the Kirby PHP framework, and implemented and coordinated all organizational details.
