CALL FOR PAPERS

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

Satellite Workshop at IEEE International Conference on Multimedia & Expo
July 19-23, Singapore,
www.icme2010.org

Workshop Website: webia.lip6.fr/~codognet/IMIDA

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
labs.

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

and uploaded on the Online Submission Website for ICME 2010:

Musicology in the Digital Age

A Study Day in association with the Institute of Musical Research and the Society for Music Analysis

Room G37, Senate House, University of London
26 April 2010, 10am - 4pm

Speakers to include: Alan Marsden (Lancaster), Tim Crawford (Goldsmiths), David Bretherton (Southampton), Vanessa Hawes (UEA) and Polina Proutskova (Goldsmiths)

This event is aimed at musicologists (including ethnomusicologists and music theorists) who are interested in applying, or already apply, e-Science methodologies and computational approaches to their research. We particularly encourage established, emerging and postgraduate scholars with no prior experience of computational musicology or e-Science, to attend. A primary aim of the Study Day is to help attendees recognise opportunities for computational and e-Science approaches in their own work, and for identifying potential areas for future research collaboration.

The morning will be given over to presentations by scholars already working at the intersection of musicology and computer science. The afternoon will be devoted to workshops and discussion of the issues surrounding 'e-musicology'.

Attendance is free of charge, but places are limited.
Email D.Bretherton at soton.ac.uk to secure a place.

multimodal age.

This will be held at the British Library on 18 May 2010. Further details
are attached to this email. We can accommodate up to 180 delegates, on a
first-come, first-served basis.

Please let me know if you would like a place reserved.

May I also take this opportunity to inform you of the following upcoming
