ACM Multimedia 2005 Interactive Art Program
Singapore, November 6-12, 2005

Sponsored by ACM SIGMM, SIGGRAPH, and SIGCOMM. In collaboration with Leonardo

ACM Multimedia 2005 is the premier annual multimedia conference, covering 
all aspects of multimedia computing. The ACM MM Interactive Art Program 
seeks to bring together the arts and multimedia communities to create the 
stage to explore, discuss, and push the limits for the advancement of both 
multimedia technology through the arts, and the arts through multimedia 
The Interactive Art Program will consist of a *conference track* and an 
*art exhibition*. We invite artists working with digital media and 
researchers in technical areas to submit their original contributions to 
the following tracks:

* Conference track: we solicit papers describing interactive multimedia art 
works, tools, applications, and technical approaches for creative uses of 
multimedia content and technology. Emphasis will be given to novel works 
that use a rich variety of media and those that are interactive, 
particularly works that exploit non-conventional human-computer interfaces 
or sensors in new and emerging areas. We strongly encourage papers with a 
strong technical content written by artists. Topics of interest (but not 
limited to):

- Interactive storytelling and authoring
- Multimedia content analysis (for automatic video editing, search art, etc.)
- Multimedia software as art (collaborative and open source)
- Network analysis and network art
- Tangible interfaces for art
- Tools for multimedia performance
- Immersive multimedia
- Perceptual, haptic, affective, and multi-modal interfaces and 
architectures for art
- Sonification and electronic music
- Context aware multi-modal sensing
- Computational applications of art media theory and semiotics
- Experiential systems
- Generative multimedia art
- Mobile multimedia art
- Museum
- Sensors for multimedia art
- Novel multimedia performance instruments

* Multimedia art exhibition: "Presence/Absence." We seek art works that use 
multimedia to explore issues of location, relocation and dislocation, 
particularly where multimedia technology overcomes or reinforces physical 
presence or separation. The emphasis for the exhibition is on interactive 
art works that realize powerful artistic concepts using multimedia content 
and technologies.

Best Paper Awards will be given with an emphasis on novel uses of 
multimedia technology.

Accepted papers for the exhibition and conference track will be published 
in the ACM Multimedia Conference proceedings. A selection of the works 
accepted will be published in a Leonardo Gallery in the Leonardo Journal 
and on line in the Leonardo Electronic Almanac.

The conference will be held at the Hilton Hotel in Singapore. The art 
exhibition will be held at LASALLE-SIA Gallery, Singapore.
