A Global Stakeholder Map of Fab Labs: New Results
Audit. 3A

In preparation for the book, Designing Reality, co-authored by Neil Gershenfeld, Alan Gershenfeld, and Joel Cutcher-Gershenfeld, we conducted a global survey of fab labs. We have received responses from over 175 fab leaders. This workshop will present results from the survey -- identifying opportunities and pain points in the eco-system. Best time to present would be on Thursday, August 3rd.

Research Workshop on FabLabs & private sector : models and lever for collaborations
ROOM 6


The main purpose of the Workshop is to identify organizational models that may foster “healthy” collaborative dynamics with the private sector. In order to do that we’ll have for a goal to: - Share experiences of collaborations with the private sector and identify good practices and current traps. - Establish typologies of private actors FabLabs interact with and of the nature of the relationships they develop It will be leaded in benevolence with participative tools so that every participants finds it’s place as the workshop is efficient. Results will be shared and the workshops reproduced at FAB14 to have a continuum of datas.

Doctoral consortium of digital fabrication and soft prototyping
Place: Audit. 3A
Working Group: 3H

Doctoral consortium of digital fabrication and soft prototyping provides an opportunity for doctoral students and young researchers to explore and develop their research interests as well as share experience in the academy around digital fabrication, surfaces, organic materials, bio-inspired design, machines and the implications of Human Computing Interaction (HCI). This consortium encourages participants to discuss the development of educational strategies through making and to think how these practices can guide new approaches in digital fabrication that encompasses the impact of today's prototyping. We invite students who feel they would benefit from this kind of feedback on their dissertation work to apply for this unique opportunity to share their work with students in a similar situation as well as senior researchers in the field. While we encourage applications from students at any stage of doctoral training, the doctoral consortium will benefit most the students who are in the process of forming or developing their doctoral research. Participation of students from all over the world and especially from latin american countries is hoped.

Key points include: Research objectives/goals/questions Background/literature review of key works that frames your research Hypothesis/thesis and/or problem statement Current and expected contributions Short Curriculum Vitae
