7th International Conference on Movement and Computing15-17th July, 2020 Jersey
City, New Jersey, USA


This year’s theme is Movement Sensations

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

We would like to invite submissions for paper presentations, performances,
workshops and more to the MOCO which will be held 15-17th July 2020 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 practice
work such as demos, performances, games, artistic works and movement
workshops (in which participants take part in a guided movement activity). We
encourage creative proposals for practice sessions and are open to novel

Topics include but are not limited to (bold topics are new 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. The
proceedings of the MOCO conference are published on the ACM Digital library
under the International Conference Proceedings Series.
Practice Works

The term “practice work” refers to practice-based works in the area of
movement and computing. These can either be artistically-oriented
descriptions/demonstrations of specific performances or systems, or
descriptions of a particular computationally-oriented application. We
suggest the following as examples of what a practice work might be, but
also stress that the list is not exhaustive, the only criteria being
excellence of the work and whether it is possible to present the work given
the resources, time, and space available to the conference.

Suggested practice work topics include:


   Technology demos

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


   Interactive Installations


   Video presentations

Practice works may either be submitted for presentation as posters or
demos. Poster submissions will detail a specific approach to the practice
of movement and computing. Selected posters will be presented at the
conference, and an accompanying extended abstract will be published in the
conference proceedings.

Demo submissions will outline a live demonstration/performance that will
take place at the conference. Demos will take place during dedicated
sessions at the conference. Performances may be submitted in the Demo
category, in which case a dedicated time will be given for the performance
(generally up to 10 minutes), however due to the configuration of Mana
Contemporary and the conference schedule, Demo performances will take place
in a shared gallery space (and not on a proscenium stage). Practitioners
submitting in the Demo category will have the option of including an
ACM-formatted extended abstract for inclusion in the conference proceedings.

Poster Practice Works submissions consist of the following items combined
into one pdf document. Please note, all submissions must be anonymous--this
includes external media:


   An extended abstract in appropriate ACM formatting (2-pages maximum, see
   below) for inclusion in the conference proceedings

   A document with links to supporting media (videos, pictures, audio, etc.)

Demo Practice Works submissions consist of the following items combined
into one pdf document. Please note, all submissions must be anonymous--this
includes external media:


   A 200-word abstract to be included in conference program

   A 1-2 page (maximum) project description, including links to supporting
   media (videos, pictures, audio, etc.)

   A 1-2 page (maximum) technical rider detailing all necessary equipment,
   furniture, and space requirements for the Demo. This document should
   indicate what equipment the submitter is providing, and what equipment is
   expected to be provided by the organizers. The organizers will make every
   effort to provide standard equipment as needed for Demo submissions (e.g.
   sound reinforcement, projection, displays, etc.), however specialized
   equipment required for performance will be the responsibility of the

   (optional) An extended abstract in appropriate ACM formatting (2-pages
   maximum, see below) for inclusion in the conference proceedings.

Please note that we are an academic conference with a low fee which means
we cannot pay for commissioned work or provide any financial compensation
to submitters in this category. All accepted submissions will require at
least one author to register for the conference.
Graduate Consortium

Submissions in this category represent an opportunity for graduate students
to 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 with other graduate students at a
similar stage of their research. Accepted papers will be presented as
posters in a dedicated “poster tour” session where authors will have an
opportunity to orally present a short elevator pitch to experts in the
field. We encourage students to submit a paper even if they are early in
their graduate career.

Papers should not be longer than 4 pages including references in the
appropriate ACM format (see below). The first author must be a current
graduate student (at the time of submission). Graduate Consortium papers
will be indexed and published in the conference proceedings. Videos and
other supplementary materials are welcomed. Students accepted to present
their work at the Graduate Consortium must plan to attend it.
