Automatic Type Design

A symposium at the crossroad between computer sciences, humanities and typographic design.

Pioneers of digital typography (Jacques André, Richard Southall) interact with experts in encoding and image analysis techniques (Johannes Bergerhausen, Bart Lamiroy ) as well as with some of the most innovative software creators currently in activity (Erik Van Blokland, Frederik Berlaen, Simon Eggli, Pierre Marchand, Jean-Yves Ramel, Yannick Mathey & Louis -Rémi Babé... ). New technologies, as well as promising projects in the field of programmatic type design, are presented, including Superpolator 3, Prototypo, and Metapolator.
