ACM Multimedia Art (MM-ART) Call for Participation -- Extended Deadline

  • Deadline:
    May 2, 2008, midnight
  • Location:

The ACM MM Interactive Art Program is a premier international venue connecting the arts and digital multimedia. MM-ART is a stage for digital art innovation utilizing multimedia technology, and a research venue advancing multimedia technology through the innovation of the arts. We develop synergy connecting artists' and scientists' complementary modalities of production, a ground for connecting methodologies such as human centered computing, pattern recognition, metadata representation, and networking with creative cultural expression.

This year's fifth version of the Interactive Art Program will consist of an art exhibition at Vancouver's Science World and a conference track of research papers. We invite artists working with digital media, researchers in creative areas and all hybrid entities amidst these knowledge construction approaches to submit original contributions.

Multimedia Art Exhibition: We seek artworks exploring the theme of Border Zones using multimedia to shift, traverse, intersect, and combine genres and modalities to provoke the emergence of new frameworks. We particularly seek interactive multimedia works that combine multiple media, technologies, and novel technical ideas, realize strong artistic concepts that give a new perspective on the topic of the exhibition. View exhibition submission instructions http://www.mmart.iat.sfu.ca/exhsubmission.html

The conference registration and dinner fees for exhibiting artists will be waived.

Art Exhibition Deadline: May 2, 2008 (extended)

Conference Track: We solicit papers describing interactive multimedia artworks, tools, applications, and technical approaches for creative uses of multimedia content and technology, and management of art-related media collections. Emphasis will be given to new works that describe the creative processes within art, in forms such as interactive experiences and creativity support tools. We also invite papers on works 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. Papers may be long (10 pages) or short (2 to 4 pages). Long papers are presented in front of an audience and short papers are presented in poster format. View conference track submission instructions http://www.mmart.iat.sfu.ca/fullshortpapersub.html
