full name / name of organization:

November 2006 International Digital Media and Arts Association Conference
"Work in Progress/Rate of Change"

Call for Papers

The fourth annual International Digital Media and Arts Association Conference
seeks abstracts for papers that explore the reality of the constantly
changing digital universe in which we live. This brave new world is a
constant work in progress. Whereas the old reference point was the finishing
of "something" (be it media object, art form, or business practice); now the
issue is not completion, but rate of change. Nothing stands still. While this
was always true, the evolution of the digital world we all live in has
brought this into clear focus.

The conference welcomes academics, artists, and industry representatives to
participate in refereed paper presentations, panels, discussion workshops,
gallery talks, performances, and hands-on tutorials. The conference will
begin on November 9th and end on November 11th and will also include a juried
exhibition and a vendor fair. This conference is hosted in San Diego,
California by National University.

The four main conference categories for the November 2006 iDMAa Conference
are 1) Art/Design, 2) Business/Industry, 3) Education, and 4) Media/Games.

The Conference seeks submissions of abstracts (500 words maximum) for
presentation and discussion. All abstracts will be refereed for acceptance.
Those works selected for the conference will then be reviewed for possible
publication in _The International Digital Media and Arts Association
Journal_. Submissions will be for one of four main conference categories.

Please send all submissions by September 15th, 2006 to:
Aleksandra Vinokurova at

Abstracts should be submitted for review as an attachment in either Microsoft
Word or PDF format (please include your last name in the filename). Abstracts
should include a cover letter indicating your preferred conference category
and should follow standard academic paper formatting conventions.
Participants are also encouraged to propose panels on topics of specific
interest. Panel submissions should include a brief description of the panel
topic and list of panelists (include a short vita for each panelist). Authors
will be notified via email of acceptance by approximately September 30, 2006.
