7th International Conference on Movement and Computing15-17th July, Jersey
City, New Jersey, USA.


This year’s theme is Movement Sensations

15-17th July, Jersey City, NJ

In collaboration with our hosts, Mana Contemporary
<>, organizing institutions Rutgers
University and Stevens Institute of Technology are pleased to announce the
seventh international symposium on Movement and Computing.

We would like to invite submissions for paper presentations, performances,
workshops and more to the 7th International Conference on Movement and
Computing (MOCO) which is to be held 15-17th July in Jersey City, NJ.
Important Dates


   Submission deadline: 19 February 2020

   Notification of Acceptance: 15 April 2020

   Registration starts: 1 May 2020

Information about previous conferences can be found here

MOCO is open to a wide range of ways to present your work. In addition to
papers for oral and poster presentations, we invite submission of a wide
range of practice work such as demos, performances, games, artistic works
and movement workshops (in which participants take part in a guided
movement activity). We encourage submitters to be creative in proposals for
practice sessions and are open to novel formats.

Topics Include but are not limited to (Bolded means new to this year):


   Dance and technology

   Interactive dance

   Music and movement

   Gesture and sound

   Entrainment and movement

   Sensory augmentation of movement

   Sensorimotor learning

   Embodied cognition and movement

   Embodied interaction

   Full body interaction

   Technique analysis

   Individual and group movement capture in sports

   Mechanisms of coordination dynamics

   Learning detection through the movement

   Non-linear analysis to predict performance and learning process

   Non-linear analysis as a tool for diagnosis

   Movement in social interaction

   Movement and computing for autism and other nervous disorders

   Movement analysis and analytics

   Bio-sensing, biocontrol and movement

   Digital biomarkers for tracking the peripheral nervous system

   Movement as a proxy of human brain

   Machine learning for movement

   Movement computation for entrainment

   Movement computation in education

   Movement computation in ergonomics, sports, and health

   Movement expression in virtual humans and robots

   Theoretical approaches to movement understanding

   Philosophical perspectives on movement and computing

   Movement Notation Systems (e.g. Laban or Eshkol-Wachman)

We encourage submission of a wide range of formats, the submission
categories are:
Papers and posters


   Long paper with oral presentation (8 pages maximum)

   Short paper with oral presentation (4 pages maximum)

   Extended abstract with poster presentation (6 pages maximum in the
   extended abstract format)

The conference is an opportunity to present original research and details
of collaborative work. Participants will have the chance to offer a
presentation of the results of their research on one of the themes of the
conference and to interact with their scientific/artistic peers, in a
friendly and constructive environment.

All papers submissions must be anonymous and will be peer-reviewed.
Practice Works

We deliberately use a very open term – “practice work” – to encourage
diverse ideas of what practice in movement and computing is and how such
practice can be presented. We suggest the following as examples of what a
practice work might be, but also stress that the list is not exhaustive and
any types of presentation can be considered, the only criteria being
excellence of the work and whether it is possible to stage the work given
the resources, time and space available to the conference.

Suggested practice work topics:


   Technology demos

   Performances (e.g., dance, physical performance, music)


   Interactive Installations

   Movement workshops (i.e., a session in which participants engage in
   movement based activity)


   Video presentations

Submissions consist of:


   An extended abstract (2 pages maximum).

   The proposal form for practice work, including detailed technical
   requirements and possible additional information.

   Supporting media (videos, pictures, audio, and so on), which should
   provide an overview of the practical work and details of the practical and
   technical requirements for putting the work on (this is very important to
   ensure that we can accommodate the work within the resources of our

Practice works will be juried from either the scientific or artistic
committee. The authors will have to define if their work aims at developing
some scientific or artistic work at the time of submission.

Please note that we are an academic conference with a low fee which means
we cannot pay for commissioned performances and art work. Also, we cannot
guarantee facilities for all possible sessions, so please give full details
of your needs in the proposal form so we can judge whether it is possible.
Doctoral Consortium

Doctoral papers are an opportunity for PhD students to present their work
in progress on their doctorate, share and develop their research ideas in a
supportive environment and with the participation of experts in the field.
Students will have the opportunity to establish a community, together with
other doctoral students at a similar stage of their research. Accepted
papers will have an oral presentation in a dedicated session. We encourage
students to submit a paper even if they are early in their doctoral work.

Papers should not be longer than 4 pages including references. The first
author must be an actual PhD student. Doctoral Consortium papers will be
indexed and published in the ACM digital library. Videos and other
supplementary materials are highly welcomed. Students accepted to present
their work at the Doctoral Consortium must plan to attend it.
