Second International ICST Conference on Arts and Technology

December 7–8, 2011
Esbjerg, Denmark

Call for Papers

Scope

With the evolution of intelligent devices, sensors and ambient intelligent/ubiquitous systems, it is not surprising to see many researches and arts projects starting to explore the design of intelligent artistic artefacts. Ambient intelligence supports the vision that technology will become invisible, embedded in our natural surroundings, present whenever we need it, attuned to all our senses, adaptive to users and context and autonomously acting. High quality arts or information should be potentially available to any user, anywhere, at any time, with any device. The information environments will be the major drivers of culture which will eventually lead to the future space (intelligent, interactive, invisible and informative) - Utopia kind of life.

Topics

ArtsIT is by nature a multi-disciplinary conference. The call for papers is therefore aimed at people across a wide spectrum of interests and disciplines including computer science, design, arts, sociology, anthropology, psychology, and marketing.

We cordially invite prospective authors to submit unpublished research papers with novel contributions in the following areas:

  • New Media Technologies (Evolutionary systems that create arts or display art works, such as tracking sensors, wearable computers, mixed reality, etc.)
  • Software Art (Image processing or computer graphics techniques that create arts, including algorithmic art, mathematic art, advanced modelling and rendering, etc.)
  • Animation Techniques (2D or 3D computer animations, AI-based animations, etc.)
  • Multimedia (Integration of different media, such as virtual reality systems, audio, performing arts, etc.)
  • Interactive Methods (Vision-based tracking and recognition, interactive art, etc.)

Conference proceedings and publications

All submitted contributions will undergo peer review. Reviews will be single blind (i.e., include authorship information with the submitted paper). Accepted papers will be published in the ArtsIT Conference Proceedings and by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes of ICST (LNICST). The proceedings will be available both in book form and via the SpringerLink digital library, and will be submitted for inclusion in leading indexing services, including DBLP, Google Scholar, ACM Digital Library, ISI Proceedings, EI Engineering Index, CrossRef, Scopus and Zentralblatt Math, as well as ICST's own EU Digital Library (EUDL).

Selected papers will appear in the International Journal of Arts & Technology (Inderscience).

Authors with accepted special contributions will be asked to submit an extended version of their paper. A typical length for a long paper is between 20 and 30 pages. Please also note that 20-30 pages unformatted ordinary MS Word text would typically result in a shorter document of 12-20 pages, formatted according to the Springer guidelines.
