The three-day event brings together literary theorists, writers, computer programmers and artists to investigate the impact of new technologies on the humanities. It includes a series of roundtable discussions and digital poetry performances plus the immersive visualization exhibit called Scroll Navigator, which has been created jointly by CityU's Applied Laboratory for Interactive Visualization Embodiment (ALiVE) and the Centre for Applied Computing and Interactive Media (ACIM), and which will be shown at the Hong Kong Maritime Museum.
