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

Sponsored by ACM SIGMM, SIGGRAPH, and SIGCOMM. 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:

* 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 artists. Topics of interest (but not limited to):

- Interactive storytelling and authoring
- Multimedia content analysis (for automatic video editing, search art, etc.)
- Multimedia software as art (collaborative and open source)
- Network analysis and network art
- Tangible interfaces for art
- Tools for multimedia performance
- Immersive multimedia
- Perceptual, haptic, affective, and multi-modal interfaces and architectures
for art
- Sonification and electronic music
- Context aware multi-modal sensing
- Computational applications of art media theory and semiotics
- Experiential systems
- Generative multimedia art
- Mobile multimedia art
- Museum
- Sensors for multimedia art
- Novel multimedia performance instruments

* 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

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

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. The art
exhibition will be held at LASALLE-SIA Gallery, Singapore.
