ACM Multimedia 2008
Interactive Art Program
October 27 - November 1,Vancouver, Canada
*CALL FOR EXHIBITION ENTRIES AND PAPERS*
ACM Multimedia 2008 is the premier annual multimedia conference,
covering all aspects of multimedia computing. The ACM MM Interactive Art
Program seeks to bring together the arts and multimedia communities to
create the stage to explore, discuss, and push the limits for the
advancement of both multimedia technology through the arts, and the arts
through multimedia technology.
This fifth version of the Interactive Art Program will consist of an art
exhibition and a conference track. We invite artists working with
digital media and researchers in technical areas to submit their
• Conference track: we solicit papers describing interactive multimedia
artworks, tools, applications, and technical approaches for creative
uses of multimedia content and technology, and management of art-related
media collections. Emphasis will be given to new works that describe the
creative processes within art, in forms such as interactive experiences
and creativity support tools. We also invite papers on works that are
interactive, particularly works that exploit non-conventional
human-computer interfaces or sensors in new and emerging areas. We
strongly encourage papers with a strong technical content written by
artists. Papers may be long (10 pages) or short (2 to 4 pages). Long
papers are presented in front of an audience and short papers are
presented in poster format.
Deadline for full papers to the Arts Program Conference Track April 11, 2008
Deadline for short papers to the Arts Program Conference Track June 6, 2008
• Multimedia art exhibition: We seek artworks exploring the theme of
“BorderZones" using multimedia to shift, traverse, intersect, and
combine genres and modalities to provoke the emergence of new
frameworks. We particularly seek interactive multimedia works that by
combining multiple media, technologies, and novel technical ideas,
realise strong artistic concepts that give a new perspective on the
topic of the exhibition.
Deadline for submission to the Art Exhibition: April 11, 2008
