==========================================
Completing the Circle:
Incorporating Evaluation Methods in Creative Work
==========================================


==========================================
A one-day symposium in January 2009
organised by the Lansdown Centre for Electronic Arts
Middlesex University, London, UK
==========================================


This is a one-day symposium supported by the Computer Arts Society and the
Design Research Society. Papers will focus on the use of novel methods, or
methods newly borrowed from other disciplines, in evaluating the user's or
audience's response to media such as websites, portable media (such as
iPods, PSPs), pervasive games, film, videogames, technology-rich
performance, interactive art.



An aspect of interest is the use of interactive technologies to assist
evaluative processes as well as to deliver interactive experiences. The aim
is to share knowledge about evaluation methods and to debate the role and
value of different forms of evaluation in relation to the arts and media.
With this in mind, well-argued papers questioning the very idea of
evaluation (especially scientific evaluation methods) in the arts, will also
be accepted. 



All papers will be peer-reviewed by an international panel. The best papers
will be expanded and edited for a special issue of the journal Digital
Creativity.

==========================================
The Call for Papers -- Abstracts invited now
==========================================

Researchers, artists, designers and others worldwide are invited to respond
to the following deliberately provocative statement:


"The days when artists, media-makers or designers could work solely from
personal conviction -- regardless of the reception of their work -- are
gone. The intelligent artist or designer is now deeply interested in
discovering the audience's or the user's response, and keen to use the many
techniques and approaches now available for doing so."



Papers should focus on the use of novel methods, or methods newly borrowed
from other disciplines, in evaluating the user's / audience's response to
media such as websites, portable media (such as iPods, PSPs), pervasive
games, film, videogames, technology-rich performance, interactive art. An
aspect of interest is the use of interactive technologies to assist
evaluative processes as well as to deliver interactive experiences.


Examples include: 

+ the use of eyetracking to study how people watch films
+ using galvanic skin response to discover game-players' level of arousal
+ repertory gird technique to analyse players' preferences in videogames
+ building art-making machines in order to reflect on art practice


The aim is to share knowledge about evaluation methods and to debate the
role and value of different forms of evaluation in relation to the arts and
media. With this in mind, well-argued papers questioning the very idea of
evaluation (especially scientific evaluation methods) in the arts, are
welcome.



Intending authors should send an abstract of less than 1,000 words.


The Call for Abstracts closes on 31 July 2008.
