HASTAC 2013 will showcase incredible demos. The demo space includes over 20 refereed contributions, many of them graduate-student led, including such varied initiatives as: the Tax Increment Finance Visualization Project from the CivicLab; Penumbra, a hybrid, re-imagining of the Ebook; Game Changer Chicago, an interdisciplinary initiative that explores health learning through workshops in which high school aged youth — recruited primarily from underserved schools on the south side of Chicago — collaborate on digital stories and game projects; The Korsakow System for creating database cinema; “Qualia: Planet Earth, the video game” – an OCADU-developed game for iOS where players live the lives of animals in the wild and, with the help of a consumer-level EEG headset, can be played using your brainwaves; Freedom Stories – an augmented reality (AR) app for iOS to disseminate untold stories of Canada’s Underground Railroad and Ghosts of the Horseshoe a “critical interactive” that uses augmented reality to bring into view on mobile micro screens the largely unknown history of slavery that made materially possible the physical site of what is now the University of South Carolina; Round–Trip Encryption: How a Hacker Contest Cracked Agrippa; macGRID, a robust, archivable, Cyberscience and Art research platform; imageMAT: a Tool for Interoperable Image Annotation and the Shared Canvas Model; Writing Planet, the only comprehensive writing program with built-in writing assessment and scoring rubrics available to both the native and non-native English speaking student population; Meridian Stories, a series of bi-monthly digital storytelling competitions Middle and High School students; and Letters from the Archiverse: A Visualisation and Publication Tool for Literary Networking. These demonstrations constitute a groundbreaking critical mass of projects across the art-science, technology-enhanced learning and digital humanities spectrums.
