ACM Multimedia Arts Program Call for Art/Papers


ACM Multimedia 2006 Interactive Arts Program
Santa Barbara, California (USA), October 22-28, 2006

EXTENDED DEADLINE **** June 1, 2006 ****

Sponsored by ACM SIGMM. In collaboration with Leonardo.
Supported by Intel.

ACM Multimedia is the premier annual multimedia conference. The ACM MM
Interactive Arts Program brings 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

We invite artists working with digital media and researchers in technical areas
to submit their original contributions to the following two tracks:

*CONFERENCE*: papers describing interactive multimedia artworks, tools,
applications, and technical approaches for creative uses of multimedia content
and technology. We particularly encourage papers with a strong technical
content written by artists, as well as technical papers with a strong art

* MULTIMEDIA ART EXHIBITION*: "Remote: Networked Realities & Prospective
Locative Hacks." We seek multimedia artworks that raise issues related
communication (human-human, human-computer-human, etc.) and that place a strong
emphasis on the role of the notion of awareness, be it cultural, linguistic,
network-centric, spatial or geospatial. The emphasis for the exhibition is on
interactive art works that realize powerful artistic concepts using multimedia
content and technologies. Emerging and established artists are strongly
encouraged to submit.

Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Multimedia Conference proceedings
and 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.

All submissions (short papers, long papers, and art works) are due JUNE 1, 2006
(firm, extended deadline!).
