Dear All,

On behalf of the TEI Board, I'm delighted to inform you that the TEI Conference and Members Meeting 2013 will take place in at the University of Rome "La Sapienza". The local committee is chaired by Fabio Ciotti, on behalf of the AIUCD - the Italian Associazione per l'Informatica Umanistica e la Cultura Digitale, in collaboration with the research Centre DIGILAB Sapienza. 
The Programme Committee is chaired by Arianna Ciula. News about the Call for Paper will follow shortly.

The Conference and Members' Meeting will take place from 2 to 5 October, will start with the usual wealth of workshop (CFP to follow) and will include SIG meetings. Please save the date!

It is indeed our great pleasure to be able to hold our annual conference in Italy and in particular in Rome, where the use of TEI has been strong since the TEI's early days and I really hope many of you will be able to come and enjoy the delights of a rich and vibrant the intellectual environment, the extraordinary artistic treasures of of the Eternal City and the legendary food (I can personally vouch for all of the above!).

Best
Elena

Conference Call for Papers

INPUTS / OUTPUTS: Inter-disciplinary Approaches to Causality in Engagement, Immersion, Presence and Related Concepts in Performance and Human Computer Interaction

Deadline for contributions 22nd February 2013

26 June 2013
Brighton, UK

Engagement is much sought after in the public discourse of politics, theatre and education. Immersion, presence, and motivation attract further research to the engagement continuum.  The goal of this symposium is to inspire an interdisciplinary spectrum of academics, practitioners and funders interested in deeper engagement (and related terms) toward novel collaborative solutions and projects. By mixing practitioners and researchers from arts, media and science, the conference will offer a platform for adaptation of discoveries made in other disciplines.

The title “Inputs/Outputs” concerns the interaction between ‘sender’ and ‘receiver’.  Examples of human-centred inputs are computer games, immersive theatre, novels, music, and classroom lessons; examples of outputs are emotions, memories, neural activities, physiological changes, and motivated behaviours.

The rationale for the symposium is to improve the models for understanding the relationship between cause (pre-designed or scripted interventions) and effects (emotions, memories, neural activities) engendered in the audience or end-user.  In interactive experiences, proposing causal relationships is made more difficult as human responses are sometimes conflated with causes. The symposium will focus its inter-disciplinary discourse on teasing apart scripted factors (inputs to the audience) that elicit or cause states like engagement, and on the human, observable effects that result from states like engagement (outputs from the audience).

We welcome submissions on the central questions of the conference:

  *   •       The relationship between physical, emotional, and intellectual engagement
  *   •       Results from assessment and quantification of engagement in different fields
  *   •       Methodologies and modalities for measuring engagement in different fields

Other relevant topics include: rapport, immersion, ‘presence’, hypnotic absorption, neuroscience of engagement, interactional synchrony, engagement during interactivity in HCI, social signal processing, games, and the arts.

Presentations should take the form of posters or 15-minute papers. We also welcome proposals for workshops or panels. For posters and individual papers, please submit a 250-word abstract as well as a short biographical note of 100 words. For panel and workshop proposals, please provide a brief outline of the session’s aims together with abstracts and biographical notes for each speaker and for the proposed panel chair or discussants.

Please bear in mind that the conference is an interdisciplinary platform, and that submissions should be easily understood by an audience from outside of your discipline.
All proposals should be emailed as pdf to the organisers at io-conf at sussex.ac.uk<mailto:io-conf at sussex.ac.uk>.

All proposals will be acknowledged and successful contributions confirm no later than 15 March 2013.
