FULL CFP and Submission here:

The SloMoCommittee is pleased to announce the CFP for the Summer Phase of SloMoCo, an experiment in refiguring the conference form via global collaborations in collective knowledge-production, cybernetically informed learning-making structurations, and telematically mediated field practice. There are five categories: talk/papers, practice-works, micro-residencies, and seminars or courses, and an experimental category.

For examples of SloMoCo projects, please see our Spring phase documentation:

About MOCO and SloMoCo

MOCO is the International Conference on Movement and Computing. MOCO aims to gather academics and practitioners interested in the computational study, modelling, representation, segmentation, recognition, classification, or generation of movement information. For the last seven years, MOCO has convened research-practitioners with diverse metier in dance, somatic practice, theory, education and learning science, HCI, engineering, design, and neuroscience to share insights, findings, and provocations at the intersection of movement and computing. Over the years, the community has returned to the generative and complex inequality between the diversity of corporeal experiences and our ability to represent that movement. Our bodies seem ever eager to exceed technologies of computational, textual, and theoretical capture. And yet the MOCO community has cultivated a unique sensitivity to both the limits of representation and the expressive, performative affordances of emerging technologies.

In 2021 we return once more with a difference , attending to how this tension can inform our knowledge production practices. In the time of quarantine and lock-down, how can embodied approaches and creative practices with technology inform how we gather and convocate to share and generate research? How can we co-design and develop research and practice events that treat virtual and telematic engagement as a feature and not a bug? How can this attention to representation and abstraction of movement play a role in telematic, collaborative, and relational artistic practice? With its penchant for observing and prototyping embodied experience, technical know-how, know-what, know-when, we believe the MOCO community is uniquely situated to respond playfully to this speculative invitation.
