Call For Papers

Final Call xCoAx 2013: 1st International Conference on Computation, Communication, Aesthetics and X (June 2013, Bergamo)

Dates: 27-28 June 2013
Location: University of Bergamo, Bergamo Città Alta, Italy
Deadline for submissions: 31 December 2012

*Extended deadline for submissions: 20 January 2013*

The development of computational tools and media has been radically transforming the landscape for the practice of design, the arts and numerous cultural manifestations. Recognizing this, xCoAx is designed as a multi-disciplinary and nomadic enquiry on arts, computers, computation, communication and the elusive x factor that connects them all.

xCoAx is a forum for the exchange of ideas and the discovery of new and profitable synergies. It is an event exploring the frontiers of digital arts with the participation of a diverse confluence of computer scientists, media practitioners and theoreticians, that will focus on the relations between what can and cannot be computed, what can and cannot be communicated, what is beautiful and how humans and computational systems intersect in the development of new directions in aesthetics.

* Computation
* Communication
