Through lectures, meetings, tributes, exhibits, screenings and demo presentations VIEW will reveal the new digital frontier sweeping from cinema to architecture, from automotive design to advertisement, from medicine to videogames.

However, works by students will be especially welcome, since VIEW will always be the place to express and discover new Digital Talents.
