Proceedings from the Fab 14 Research Stream (2018)

For the 7th time the Fab Lab Research Papers Stream takes place at Fab14 in Toulouse, France.

As the central theme of Fab14 is "Fabricating Resilience", the Fab 14 research papers stream brings together original academic writing from researchers studying the Fab Lab movement, its ambitions and its impact from a wide range of disciplines, including computer science, engineering, science and technology studies, business and management, education, urban studies, media and design, and many more.

The four sessions of the Fab Lab Research Papers Stream will be held on Tue, July 17, and Wed, July 18, from 14:40-16:30 and 17:00-19:00 at room Guillaume 2 at the Pierre Baudis Conference Centre.
