Since 2013, ACOnet has been committed in the field of net:art - multi-site performances in real time via high-speed networks and specific low latency technologies. In order to promote the exchange of experience and knowledge within the community, ACOnet has also launched the net:art coordination center some time ago. Thanks to the friendly support of Kapsch, this initiative can now be presented on a new, comprehensive website.
