ACM Multimedia Interactive Arts Program 2007

ACM Multimedia  is the premier annual multimedia conference, covering all
aspects of multimedia computing. The Interactive Art Program, in conjunction
with  ACM MM,  seeks to bring together the arts and multimedia communities
to create the stage to explore, discuss, and push the limits for the
advancement of both multimedia technology through the arts, and the arts
through multimedia technology. The ACM Multimedia Interactive Arts program
was held in Santa Barbara, CA in 2006, in Singapore in 2005, and in New York
City in   2004.

The program consists of a Conference Track in which authors present full
papers in front of an audience, and short papers in poster format. In
addition, the program features an Interactive Art Exhibition. The art
exhibition will be hosted in the historical Zeughaus right in the center of
Augsburg. The exhibition is open to the general public, but for the
conference sessions registration is required. Please visit the main
conference page and click on "registration".

This fourth version of the  Interactive Art Program will consist of an Art
Exhibition and a Conference Track. We invite artists working with digital
media and researchers in technical areas to submit their original
contributions to the following tracks:

 Multimedia Art Exhibition: "I / You / Other" For this exhibition we seek
artworks that use multimedia to explore issues of interactivity,
self-exploration, self-representation, identity, the self in a group or the
group as a self. 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 representation
and presentation of the self and its interaction with others.

Deadline for submission to the Art Exhibition: May 8, 2007

 Conference Track: we solicit papers describing interactive multimedia art
works, tools, applications, and technical approaches for creative uses of
multimedia content and technology as well as technical approaches for the
management of art-related media collections. Emphasis will be given to novel
works that use a rich variety of media and those 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
