As part of the outreach work of the Peach project, (www.peachbit.org), a publication titled "Presence for Everyone" is being produced to be ready for spring 2009. This work will consist of a collection of short writings and visual images that illustrate the range of work being carried out within Presence research and the impact it could have on society. It will highlight important ideas and themes that will shape Presence research in the years to come, rather than focusing on the current "state of the art" of Presence technologies. The target audience is the public at large, rather than only academic readers.
We are inviting suggestions for short (600 words max) articles. These may highlight some research work that is being undertaken, or discuss wider themes. In the first instance, and to receive a more detailed author's brief, please email i.helgason (at) napier.ac.uk, by the end of December, giving a suggested title or topic.
