We are pleased to announce the 2nd International Symposium on Systems
Research in the Arts and Humanities (SSRAH): â€œOn Interaction/
Interactivity in Music, Design, Visual and Performing Artsâ€, a special
interdisciplinary two-day event to be held in Baden-Baden, Germany.
While we encourage research discussions related to the Intersymp2008â€™s
main theme of â€œsystems research and cyberneticsâ€, the Symposium in the
Arts and Humanities intends to endorse and expand this debate into the
exploration of both â€˜theoretical frameworksâ€™ and novel â€˜applications and
processesâ€™. The aim will be advancing interdisciplinary investigations
between the domains of music, architecture, urban and industrial design,
dance, performance, theatre, digital media and visual arts.
This yearâ€™s Symposium intends to initiate research dialogues between
disciplines and practices on the topic of Interaction and/or
Interactivity, taking into consideration their diverse manifestations
(physical/ material/ digital/ virtual/etc), and forms as in human-human
and human-machine relationships. Possible panel themes for conference
submissions include, but are not limited to, the following: I. inter-
face/action/relation/section; II. representations: modelling, mapping,
and (per)forming; III. processes: in motion, e-motion, and emotion; IV.
living forms, lived spaces.
