This is a call for papers for a special issue to be published in the
scholarly journal the "International Journal of Computational Science
(IJCS)". IJCS is a refereed journal focusing on theories, methods and
applications of computational science, which facilitates the dissemination
of research in this field in business, government and educational
institutions worldwide. This special issue will focus on the
multi-disciplinary emerging area of computational art. 


With the evolution of intelligent devices, sensors, and ambient
intelligent/ubiquitous systems, it is not surprising to see many research
projects starting to explore the design of intelligent artistic artifacts.
This is a new multi-disciplinary area that is still in its infancy. The goal
of this special issue is to outline some of the seminal work in this
important and growing area. 


Ambient Intelligence(AmI) 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 information and content must be available
to any user, anywhere, at any time, and on any device. Movements like "Dada"
or experiences like "Happening" or "Performance Art" were mainly focused in
dissolving the barriers between art and life, actor and spectator. AmI
technologies intend to bring art to the ordinary people while offering to
the artists a creative tool to extend the grammar of the traditional arts.
The information environments will be the major drivers of culture.


The scope of this issue is to present new artworks, research papers and
performances in the areas of technology and the arts. In general, we believe
that it is necessary to combine humanism (humanists) and technology
(technologists), a "mixture of science and art" towards a science of
"general morphology", which will express the universal totality and
necessity of human existence. This existence shouldn't be exhausted neither
on emotional level nor on logical level.


We seek papers that discuss contributions in both the art and technology. We
seek papers that discuss both theory and practice. Work discussed should be
in a finished state and fully implemented, if appropriate. Work discussed
can take on many forms, including but not limited to art exhibits,
interactive performances, multi-media installations, computer games, virtual
reality and interactive mixed reality experiences, interactive theatre,
visual dance spaces, digital and wearable cinema, scenic and choreographic
narratives, technology and music, algorithmic art, genetic and  evolutionary
art - systems that create drawings, images, animations, sculptures, poetry,
text, etc., internet art, bio-art,  nanotechnology art. 


The journal is distributed in print and online. This special issue will be
refereed by a full reviewing committee of scholars in the field of
computational art. Interested authors should submit a max of 15-page paper,
according to the authors's submission guidelines of the IJCS : http
