Computation, Communication, Aesthetics and X
Call for Papers for a special issue of the Journal of Science and Technology of the Arts (JSTA)
Guest Editors: André Rangel, Luísa Ribas, Mario Verdicchio, Miguel Carvalhais
Over the last decades, the development and use of computational tools and media have become ubiquitous and almost no aspect of our lives remains unaffected by this. In particular, this kind of technology has been radically transforming the landscape for the practice of the arts and numerous cultural manifestations.
Recognizing this, the Conference on Computation, Communication, Aesthetics and X (xCoAx) is designed as a multi-disciplinary enquiry on arts, computers, computation, communication and the elusive X factor that connects them all.
The CoViD-19 global emergency imposed the transformation of xCoAx into a digital event, but its aims have remained the same: to explore the frontiers of digital arts with the participation of a diverse confluence of computer scientists, media practitioners and theoreticians with a focus on: the relations between what can and cannot be computed; the relations between what can and cannot be communicated; what is beautiful and how computation can capture, create, elaborate beauty; how humans and computational systems intersect and generate new directions in aesthetics.
For this issue of the JSTA, the guest editors seek to continue the discourse initiated with xCoAx, by publishing articles by computer scientists, new media artists, researchers and theorists that demonstrate genuinely meaningful interconnections between computation, communication, and aesthetics within a vast group of topics that includes but is not limited to:
Algorithms, Systems, Models
Ethics of Technology, Epistemology
Mechatronics, Physical Computing
Music, Sound Art
Philosophy of Art
Philosophy of Computation
Submissions should follow the editorial guidelines of JSTA.
Deadline for paper submission: August 31st, 2020.
