Interaction: Systems, Practice and Theory

 A Creativity and Cognition Symposium
 Hosted by: The Dynamic Design Research Group, UTS.
 In cooperation with ACM SIGCHI
 To be held at: University of Technology, Sydney, and;  Powerhouse
Museum, Sydney
 16 November - 19 November 2004

The symposium will focus on the emergence of art, communication,
information and entertainment systems using interactive environments and
media in museum, gallery and other public spaces. It will address recent
research and future directions in art and design, spanning the areas of
        *       Innovative interactive devices and systems
        *       Creative practice employing interactive environments
        *       Social and cultural theory about interaction

 The discussions will draw on digital art practice, computer game
developments, human-computer interaction as well as social and cultural
theory. Attendance will primarily depend on the acceptance of refereed
contributions, which will be published in a Workshop Proceedings. An
exhibition will form an integral part of the meeting. This will show
artworks, games and other systems germane to the meeting. It is planned
to make the exhibition open to the public. Three Keynote speakers will
make public presentations to set the tone and direction of the meeting.
The symposium will be organised so that the contributions and
discussions lead to a significant book on the subject that will both
summarize the state of the art and point forward to future research and
