Dear All, 





We would like to announce the second Call for Papers for the International Workshop on Movement and Computing (MOCO15) located co-located with ISEA2015 at Simon Fraser University, Vancouver Canada August 14 -15 2015. 




People who are attending ISEA2015 will have a reduced registration fee for MOCO. 




We will have 3 keynotes spanning Dance theory, Neuroscience, and Computer Science 

We will also organize a highly acclaimed dance and technology performance by the french Company Adrien M | Claire B, called "Hanakai"

======================================= 
=International Workshop on Movement and Computing (MOCO15) 
> Intersecting Art, Meaning, Cognition, Technology 

August 14 -15 2015, Vancouver Canada 
Simon Fraser University 

http://moco.iat.sfu.ca/ 


======================================= 

Building on the success of the first International Workshop on Movement and Computing (MOCO’14) at IRCAM, we are happy to announce the second edition, MOCO’15 at Simon Fraser University. MOCO’15 will be co-located with ISEA2015 ( http://isea2015.org/ ) 

MOCO aims to gather academics and practitioners interested in the computational study, modeling, representation, segmentation, recognition, classification, or generation of movement information. We invite participants interested in exploring how movement experience can contribute to computational knowledge through movement modeling and representation. We welcome researchers that are positioned within emerging interdisciplinary domains between art & science. 

While human movement itself focuses on bodily experience, developing computational models for movement requires abstraction and representation of lived embodied cognition. Selecting appropriate models between movement and its rich personal and cultural meanings remains a challenge in movement interaction research. This two day workshop seeks to explore an equal and richly nuanced epistemological partnership between movement experience and movement cognition and computational representation. 

This second edition of MOCO will bring together people working in interdisciplinary intersections of Human Computer Interaction, Computer Graphics, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Affective Computing, Cognitive Science, Neuroscience, Psychology, and Artists from Media Art, Choreography, Composition, Dance and Design. The workshop aims at promoting scientific and artistic collaborations within this inter-disciplinary boundary. It will offer opportunities to disseminate emerging research works through presentations, demonstrations, and group discussions.

======================================= 

* Expressive movement-based interaction 
* Machine learning for movement 
* Modeling movement qualities 
* Gestural control 
* Movement generation 
* Movement and sound interaction 
* Sensori-motor learning with audio/visual feedback 
* Embodied cognition and movement

= Participation to the workshop 
======================================= 

The workshop is an opportunity to present a research or a collaborative work. Participants will have the possibility to make a presentation of the results of their research on one of the themes of the workshop, and to interact with their scientific, artistic peers, in a friendly and constructive environment. 
If you are interested in an oral presentation of your work, please submit a paper and/or a demo and/or a poster. 


= Submission 
======================================= 
The submission categories are: 
• Long paper with oral presentation (8 pages maximum) 
• Research note with oral presentation (4 pages maximum) 
• Short paper with poster presentation (2 pages maximum) 
• Demonstration (one of the above paper 2 pages minimum + Demo proposal form). 


All submissions should be PDF and use the MOCO’15 template – adapted from ACM SIGCHI template 
http://moco.iat.sfu.ca/authors/ 


Authors can submit a demonstration proposal in addition to any paper submission by adding the Demo proposal form as supplementary material to their submission. They have to provide the demo proposal form with a link to a video about the work. The demo proposal form is mandatory for all demo submissions and must include technical set-up and space requirements. 

Online submission: All submissions must be done through EasyChair 
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=moco15 
All submission must be anonymous and will be peer-reviewed. The MOCO proceedings will be indexed and published in the ACM digital library.
