>Call For Paper
>Arts | Humanities | Complex Networks
>2nd Leonardo satellite symposium
>We are pleased to invite you to Arts, Humanities, and Complex Networks —
>2nd Leonardo satellite symposium at NetSci 2011 taking place at the
>Ludwig Museum – Museum of Contemporary Art, Budapest,
>on Tuesday, June 7, 2011.
>We are pleased to announce the second Leonardo 
>satellite symposium at NetSci2011 on
>Arts, Humanities, and Complex Networks. The aim of the symposium is to foster
>cross-disciplinary research on complex systems 
>within or with the help of arts and humanities.
>The symposium will highlight arts and humanities 
>as an interesting source of data, where
>the combined experience of arts, humanities 
>research, and natural science makes a huge
>difference in overcoming the limitations of 
>artificially segregated communities of practice.
>Furthermore, the symposium will focus on 
>striking examples, where artists and humanities
>researchers make an impact within the natural 
>sciences. By bringing together network
>scientists and specialists from the arts and 
>humanities we strive for a better understanding
>of networks and their visualizations in general.
>The overall mission is to bring together pioneer 
>work, leveraging previously unused potential
>by developing the right questions, methods, and 
>tools, as well as dealing with problems of
>information accuracy and incompleteness. Running 
>parallel to the NetSci2011 conference,
>the symposium will also provide a unique 
>opportunity to mingle with leading researchers and
>practitioners of complex network science, 
>potentially sparking fruitful collaborations.
>In addition to keynotes and interdisciplinary 
>discussion, we are looking for a number of
>contributed talks. Selected papers will be 
>published in print in a Special Section of Leonardo
>Journal (MIT Press), as well as online in 
>Leonardo Transactions. The symposium is a follow up
>to the first satellite event on “Arts | 
>Humanities | Complex Networks” at NetSci2010 in Boston.
>The 2010 abstracts, papers and videos are 
>available at: 
>Confirmed keynote speakers include:
>Marek Claassen, Director, ArtFacts.Net
>Jim Crutchfield, Director, Complexity Sciences Center, UC Davis
>Nathalie Henry Riche, researcher, VIBE group, Microsoft Research, Seattle

>Neolithic to modern supply chains);
>* Emergence and evolution of canon in art, music, literature and film;
>* Evolution of communities of practice in art and science;
>* History and theory of network visualization;
>* Networks in architecture and urban planning 
>(from Ekistics to Reality Mining);
>* Network structure and dynamics in art, music, literature and film;
