  ACM Multimedia 2008
Interactive Art Program
October 27 - November 1,Vancouver, Canada


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 
original contributions:

• 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

Accepted papers and art works will be published in the ACM Multimedia
