Interactive Multimedia Installations and Digital Art (IMIDA2010)
July 23, 2010, Singapore

Satellite Workshop at IEEE International Conference on Multimedia & Expo
July 19-23, Singapore,

Workshop Website:

Scope and Topics:

The objective of this workshop is to bring together artists, researchers
and media designers in order to explore innovative use of interactive
multimedia technologies for enhancing creativity and developing cultural
contents. Artists are now exploring new horizons beyond the “white box” or
the “black box” inside museum exhibitions and envisioning “intelligent
spaces”, that is, digital artworks installed in public space which require
minimal and intuitive interaction that can take advantage of today’s
interactive and ubiquitous technologies. We believe that such a domain can
be explored only through an inter-disciplinary dialogue between science,
technology, art and the humanities.

Digital and interactive art has been developing rapidly in the last twenty
years and has now become a mature field. Artists are now experimenting
with the latest technologies and are sometimes developing works together
with researchers in order to explore new types of interaction and novel
use of digital technologies, including mobile technology, context-aware
devices, sensor networks, etc. The key point is that artworks are aimed to
be in direct contact with the general public and therefore provide an
excellent test-bed in order to experiment new ideas and their acceptance
by the mainstream public. Many digital artworks can thus also be seen as
innovative devices engaging the public in new types of interactions with
new media and envisioning thus usages and social impact. We believe that
developing art-oriented applications of multimedia techniques can lead to
a faster and easier acceptance by a broader public of the new interactive,
ambient and ubiquitous technologies that are coming out of the research

We will invite contributions on the following topics:

-  Interactive visual and sound installations
-  Digital installations for intelligent public spaces and outdoor spaces
-  location-based digital artworks and mobile artworks
-  interactive art installations
-  Tools and emerging technologies for cultural applications
   and museum installations

Paper Submission:

Prospective participants should submit either a research paper or an
artwork presentation, in relation with one or several workshop topics.
The submissions should be up to 6 pages in length according to the general
ICME2010 format:
and uploaded on the Online Submission Website for ICME 2010:

Papers will be reviewed by the program committee and selected papers will
be included in the ICME2010 conference proceedings.

We are also planning to publish a special issue of IJART,
the International Journal of Arts and Technology,
with revised and extended versions of the best papers of the IMIDA2010

Key Dates:

Workshop Paper Submission: March 15th, 2010 (EXTENDED)
Notification of Acceptance: April 1st, 2010
Final paper Due: April 15th, 2010
