Bruce Sterling, Sci-Fi Author and “The Prophet of AR”

Bruce Sterling is an American science fiction author known for his novels and work on the Mirrorshades anthology. This work helped to define the cyberpunk genre. He is well cited as both a critic and a theorist; his literature aims to reveal the technology of a global 21st century with “visionary intensity and imaginative concentration.” He is also known as “The Prophet of AR” and was the opening act for the first 3 AWE events in the USA.

Dr. Wolf Siegert, Founder & Director of IRIS Media

Dr. Wolf Siegert founded IRIS® Media. Today he works for some of the major players in the European film, television and telecommunications industry developing and promoting mid and long-range strategies for the digital era (D-Cinema, DVB-T, Mobile Multi-Media, Games & Virtual Worlds). As they say: “As a ’changineer’ his career track has been that of a hybrid character with a PCM-type-performance!”
