Call For Papers

Performance, Art, Music

Date: 7th-8th September, 2012
Venue: ICSRiM, School of Music, University of Leeds, UK


Live Interfaces is a conference on live, technology-mediated interaction in performance. The conference seeks to investigate cross-disciplinary understandings of performance technology with a particular focus on issues related to the notion of ‘liveness’ in interaction.

Live Interfaces will consist of paper and poster presentations, performances and workshops over two days. Researchers, theorists and artists from diverse fields are encouraged to participate, including: digital performance, live art, computer music, choreography, music psychology, interaction design, human computer interaction, digital aesthetics, computer vision, smart materials and augmented stage technology.

We invite submissions addressing the conference theme of technology-mediated live interaction in performance, and suggest the following indicative topics:

- Audience perception/interaction
- Biophysical sensors
- Brain-computer interfaces
- Computer vision/real-time video in performance
- Cross-modal perception/illusion
- Digital dramaturgy/choreography/composition
- Digital performance phenomenology
- Gesture recognition and control
- Historical perspectives
- Live coding in music, video animation and/or dance
- Participatory performance
- Performance technology aesthetics
- Redefining audience interaction
- Tangible interaction

Paper submissions should be in extended abstract form, with a suggested length of 500 words. Please format all submissions using either the Word or LaTeX template available from the website.

Performance proposals should include a description of the performance and the live interaction technology used, as well as a list of technical requirements. Attaching recordings of past performances is strongly encouraged.

We hope to announce a journal special issue on performance technology following the conference as a publication opportunity for extended papers.

Extended abstracts must be submitted electronically via the website by midnight (GMT+1) on the 17th June 2012. All submissions will be subject to cross-disciplinary peer review, and notified of acceptance by 1st July.
