The Network Performing Arts Production Workshop (NPAPW) is an annual conference hosted in a rotating city of Europe and the USA every other year. It is the most important gathering of the international community and open to anyone and any institution interested in using interactive technologies in educational programs or performances.
In 2013, ACOnet and the mdw - University of Music and Performing Arts hosted the NPAPW in Vienna. The workshop was organized in cooperation with TERENA (meanwhile renamed in GÉANT) and Internet2, and was graciously supported by GARR, CESCA, New World Symphony, Texas Christian University, and many more.
On this occasion we started our production series with a concert and a dance performance titled "near in the distance".

In order to realize realtime multi-site productions, experts from various disciplines have to work closely together. One of the objectives of the net:art coordination center is to offer hands-on workshops at national and international level to promote the transfer of knowledge between these specialists.
