Since 2007 re-new has presented electronic and digital artworks that explore and challenge technology and artistic practice, while fostering exchange between academics and artists. In addition to its internationally recognized media arts festivals, re-new has organized leading conferences in the field, including CMMR 2008 and 2009 and IMAC 2011 and 2012. These events have received over 2000 artwork submissions and 800 academic submissions, and reached a total audience of 12.000.
Beginning in 2013 re-new will join the media arts festival with its own academic platform. Our goal is to stimulate critical dialog, collaboration and networking between leading scholars, technologists and artists. re-new 2013 will make possible hybrid presentation formats where the confluence of art, science and technology is discussed in its full complexity.
TOPICS FOR SUBMISSION
- performing arts technology
SUBMISSION PROCEDURE – PAPERS
Final papers may be 4 or 8 pages long in Springer LNCS format. All papers will undergo the same review and publication process once past the initial round of abstract selection. The length should match the contribution. Authors may propose the presentation format that they feel best suits their contribution (short or long talk, demo, interactive exhibit, or both talk and demo/exhibit). re-new remains committed to the principle followed in previous re-new conferences – that all submissions are valued equally.
At least one author of each accepted abstract submission must register for the conference before the registration deadline in order for the final paper version to be published in the conference proceedings. The camera-ready deadline for the full paper is October 1, 2013. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions about paper submissions.
SUBMISSION PROCEDURE – ARTWORKS
Artists whose artworks are selected will not be required to register for the event, but may be asked to give a presentation about their work. Professional video documentation of all activities and artworks will be undertaken by re-new and published in our web archive. Artists may freely use this material for their own purposes.
SUBMISSION PROCEDURE – STUDIOS
Studios are likely to focus on hands-on activities that offer new approaches and unexpected experiences to conference attendees, combining the arts with emerging technologies. They will be open to anyone who has registered for the conference, and each Studio will accommodate around 10-15 participants. Additional fees might be required for equipment, if needed for a particular workshop.
Each Studio will be represented by a 4-page extended abstract that will be included in the Proceedings and published together with the other accepted submissions. Organizers are also encouraged to arrange for later publications of a studio's creative output, such as participation in the Leonardo Electronic Almanac series mentioned below.
Studios should encourage new and enriching perspectives in the field of art and technology. Through the studios, organizers can share their work with other professionals, engage in co-creation and gain feedback to broaden their research experience. Studio topics could include for example, the exploration of new tools or techniques, creative approaches to merging technology with the arts, artistic or research-oriented topics, etc., or could take the form of technical experiments or creative sessions. We look forward to creative and original studios that will open attendees' minds to fresh and innovative experiences in the field!
An external panel will select the best academic and artistic works from the proceedings for a second editing and peer-reviewing process, which will result in a subsequent publication in the Leonardo Electronic Almanac series (LEA). Additional publication possibilities are being explored.
The abstracts will be available to registered delegates online before the event and an electronic copy will be presented to delegates at the event.
All artworks, academic presentations, panel discussions and studios will be video documented and made available at re-new’s online public access database.
