It is our pleasure to announce that the 2012 Pacific Neighborhood Consortium (PNC) Annual Conference and Joint Meetings will take place at School of Information at UC Berkeley from December 7th to December 9th, 2012. The conference is hosted by the Electronic Cultural Atlas Initiative (ECAI) and the School of Information at UC Berkeley. The main theme is “New Horizons: Information Technology Connecting Culture, Community, Time, and Place.”


This year, the PNC 2012 Annual Conference and Joint Meetings will provide an opportunity for global communities to gather up and further explore the cutting-edge trends in information technology. With the vision of creating a virtual library of cultural information through a time and place interface, this year’s conference focuses on issues of supporting collaboration and shared knowledge.

 

In addition, a one-day workshop, From Space to Place, is being hosted in conjunction with PNC 2012 on December 9th. From Space to Place, Berkeley 2012, is the fifth in a series of multidisciplinary workshops exploring remote sensing, archaeology, anthropology, and history. The workshop is organized in partnership with University of California, Merced (USA), School of Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts and the University of Siena (ITALY), Department of Archaeology and History of Arts, Landscape Archaeology and Remote Sensing Lab (LAP&T).
