5th EyesWeb Week
Genoa, ITALY
6-10 June, 2016

The EyesWeb Week  will be held at the site of InfoMus Lab at Casa Paganini. Casa Paganini is located in the ancient complex of the ex-monastery of Santa Maria delle Grazie, in the heart of the historical centre of Genova. The 230-seats auditorium is a fascinating space of the 14th century, covered by a vault completely decorated with frescos of the 16th century by Bernardo Castello e Giovanni Carlone. Casa Paganini also includes several museum rooms and the new site of DIST-InfoMus Lab with motion tracking and multimedia setups. Since 2005 DIST-InfoMus Lab is present at Casa Paganini with an international project on music, science, and technology including scientific seminars, schools, conferences, and preparation of multimedia technologies and interfaces for artistic productions and museum exhibits.
