Over a time-line of 48 hours international artists, scientists, theorists, computer experts and the scheme-team will discuss, report and reflect on topics succeeding one another in a temporal rhythm and forming the "content back bone" of ncc48. There will also be concurrent workshops, chats, lectures and presentations of networkart projects.
