MutaMorphosis: Challenging Arts and Sciences

8th - 10th of November 2007, Prague, Czech Republic

The international conference will concentrate on the growing interest --
within the worlds of the arts, sciences and technologies -- in EXTREME AND
HOSTILE ENVIRONMENTS. These environments appear as symptomatic indicators of
the mutations that are taking place; they are potential vectors that make
possible an awareness of the different problems at the origin of the
disturbances that threaten the ensemble of the Earth's eco-systems.

We invite practitioners in the arts, sciences, engineering and humanities to
submit abstracts that explore the limits and extremes within the following
streams of interest:

How do the arts and sciences deal with new ideas about strategies of life in
extreme conditions?

How do the arts and sciences face radical scales and extreme environments?

How do the arts and sciences address evolving ideas about cognition in
extreme environments?

500-word abstracts required by 31st of January 2007 via email to
mutamorphosis at ciant.cz.

All submitted abstracts will be peer reviewed by the members of
International Advisory Committee including Lorella Abenavoli, Marc Battier,
Nina Czegeldy, Hans Diebner, Michele Emmer, Machiko Kusahara, Lubica
Lacinova, Michael Punt, Jaroslav Petr, Nicolas Reeves and others.
Submissions accepted and presented at the conference will be published in
the conference proceedings.

The conference is organised by CIANT as part of the ENTER festival in the
framework of the Leonardo 40th anniversary celebrations. The festival will
feature also the first retrospective exhibition of Frank J. Malina.

Conference Honorary Panel: Rudolf Arnheim, Ivan M. Havel, Frank Popper,
Sonya Rapoport, Jasia Reichardt, Itsuo Sakane, Sonia Sheridan

Join us in Prague 8th - 10th of November 2007.
