Dear colleagues,

please note that the deadline for submissions to the interactive arts 
program has been extended. It is now the *27th of April 2008*.

*ACM Multi Media 2008 * 
Arts Program Call for Papers and Exhibition Entries  ( )
October 27 - November 1, 2008 
Vancouver, Canada
ACM Multimedia 2008 is the premier annual multimedia conference, 
covering all aspects of multimedia computing. The ACM MM Interactive Art 
Program connects arts and multimedia communities, creating a stage for 
exploring, discussing, and pushing the limits for the advancement of 
multimedia technology through the arts, and the arts through multimedia 

This year's fifth version of the Interactive Art Program will consist of 
a conference track and an art exhibition at Vancouver's Science. 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. View conference track submission 
*Full Papers Deadline: April 27, 2008 **(extended)*
*Short Papers Deadline: June 6, 2008 *
 *Multimedia Art Exhibition:* We seek artworks exploring the theme of 
"Border Zones" 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, 
realize strong artistic concepts that give a new perspective on the 
topic of the exhibition. View exhibition submission instructions
*Art Exhibition Deadline: April 27, 2008 (extended)*

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