We are seeking papers and artist presentations which interrogate, examine, tease, put forward, discuss, postulate, propose, analyse, synthesise, combine, hybridise, expound and tickle ideas around the above subjects.

The symposium will be held at the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery on the final weekend of the SCANZ residency.

Papers will be considered for peer reviewed publication in the SCANZ book to follow the residency and symposium. Paper presentations at the symposium are expected to be 20 minutes, with an additional 10 minutes for discussion. The symposium is ‘all in’ - everyone will experience all sessions. Proposals for artist presentations are open in terms of format - we expect but do not limit proposals to documentation in the form of video, DVD, CD, animation, website, speech, text, image, software, code and Open Source projects.
