ACM Multimedia 2005 Interactive Art Program
Singapore, November 6-12, 2005

In collaboration with Leonardo

ACM Multimedia 2005 is the premier annual multimedia conference, covering
all aspects of multimedia computing. The ACM MM Interactive Art Program
seeks to bring together the arts and multimedia communities to create the
stage to explore, discuss, and push the limits for the advancement of
both multimedia technology through the arts, and the arts through
multimedia technology.

The Interactive Art Program will consist of a *conference track* and an
*art exhibition*. We invite artists working with digital media and
researchers in technical areas to submit their original contributions to
the following tracks:

* Multimedia art exhibition: "Presence/Absence." We seek art works that
use multimedia to explore issues of location, relocation and dislocation,
particularly where multimedia technology overcomes or reinforces physical
presence or separation. The emphasis for the exhibition is on interactive
art works that realize powerful artistic concepts using multimedia
content and technologies.

* Conference track: we solicit papers describing interactive multimedia
art works, tools, applications, and technical approaches for creative
uses of multimedia content and technology. Emphasis will be given to
novel works that use a rich variety of media and those that are
interactive, particularly works that exploit non-conventional
human-computer interfaces or sensors in new and emerging areas. We
strongly encourage papers with a strong technical content written by

Best Paper Awards will be given with an emphasis on novel uses of
multimedia technology.

Accepted papers for the exhibition and conference track will be published
in the ACM Multimedia Conference proceedings. A selection of the works
accepted will be published in a Leonardo Gallery in the Leonardo Journal
and on line in the Leonardo Electronic Almanac.

The conference will be held at the Hilton Hotel in Singapore (art
exhibition location TBA).
