CALL FOR ARTWORKS, MUSIC, PERFORMANCES and INSTALLATIONS

Deadline for submission: 1st March, 2013

Extended Deadline: 8th March, 2013

Submission Method: Easychair – see Submission.

We are calling for proposals for artworks, music, performances and installations to be presented in conjunction with the conference.

We are seeking a wide variety of artworks related to (but not limited to) the conference theme of `intersections and interactions’. The exhibition of these works will be juried and presentation of works will be integrated into the conference program, in either a concert format, art exhibition or co-located installation, depending on available resources and locations.

Formal proposals should be 2 pages in SIGCHI format (see ‘Submission’), and should include the elements listed below. The 2-page text of these submissions will be published in the conference proceedings, but appendices (eg. staging diagrams, scores, large photos) should be included as extra pages in the same pdf, and these extra pages need not follow SIGCHI format. For the proceedings the extra pages will not be published, only the formal 2-page submission will be published. Accepted submissions will need to be revised based on reviews and according to guidelines for camera-ready publication to be sent upon notification of acceptance.

For ALL SUBMISSIONS (ARTWORK / INSTALLATION / MUSIC / PERFORMANCE PROPOSALS)

Submit 2-page PDF proposal in SIGCHI Format addressing the above following:

• Title of work.

• Clearly state the proposed performance.

• Name(s) of participants/submitters

• Short biography of artists/composers/performers/designers

• 150-200 word summary/abstract of work, designed for inclusion in a program.

 

ADDITIONALLY For MUSIC & PERFORMANCE  PROPOSALS

• Provide any recordings or documentation of previous performances, or scores of the work (if they exist).

• List the number of performers and instrumentation (if necessary)

• List equipment (if any) to be provided by the conference organisers. Note that equipment availability is limited and significant unusual technical requirements may restrict the possibility of acceptance of the work unless detailed plans are provided.

 

ADDITIONALLY For ARTWORK & INSTALLATION PROPOSALS

• Provide any documentation of previous presentations of this work.

• Describe the space needed and the adaptability of the work. Information regarding available spaces will be posted on the website as it becomes available.

• List equipment (if any) to be provided by the conference organisers. Note that equipment availability is limited and significant unusual technical requirements may restrict the possibility of acceptance of the work unless detailed plans are provided.

• Locations that may be used for installations will be published on the conference website shortly.

Submission will be by the easychair submission system. If there are a large number of attachments then please submit as a zipped folder with your surname, followed by the submission title as the folder name. If your files are larger than 100mb, please provide a link to the files on a storage service in your submission notes (eg. Dropbox etc.), rather than submitting huge files.

We also invite WORKSHOP PROPOSALS to be presented on the day preceding the full conference (17th June 2013):
Workshops offer an informal environment for attendees with common interests and diverse perspectives to engage in rich discussions around works in progress or new areas of research and practice. Workshops can relate to, but are not limited to, the topics of the conference (see the Call for Participation for an overview), and are a good opportunity to explore a specialised interest or interdisciplinary topic with greater time for in depth discourse, debate and collaboration. Admission to workshops and tutorials will be charged separately from the main conference.
