The call for proposals for papers to be presented at the online Cyberformance Symposium (CyPosium) closes on Friday 15 June.
The CyPosium seeks to discuss online performances with artists, researchers and interested participants. Questions we would like to tackle include: What different kinds of events happened? What did they make possible? What was special about the event? Why were things done in a certain way and what were the results?
We invite proposals for presentations about past online performances. Presentations will be programmed into 30 minute timeslots, should be no longer than 20 minutes in duration (10 minutes will be scheduled for questions) and can be done in the Upstage platform (or in another platform if you wish). Presentations could involve webcasting, showing archives, talks, etc. A public chat will be available for interaction between the artists and audience. There will be facilitated discussions between programmes of presentations, to enable general discussion around common themes. Everything will be recorded for archival and documentation purposes.
For more information and how to submit your proposal, please visit http://www.cyposium.net/call-for-proposals/
The CyPosium is organised and hosted by UpStage, the Waterwheel Tap and independent cyberformers. It will take place in a variety of online platforms and everyone is welcome to attend.
