CALL FOR PAPERS, PANELS, DEMONSTRATIONS & PERFORMANCES

The Digital Art Weeks PROGRAM (DAW06) is concerned with the 
application of
digital technology in the arts. Consisting of symposium, workshops 
and performances,
the program offers insight into current research and innovations in 
art and
technology as well as illustrating resulting synergies in a series of

performances
during the event each year, making artists aware of impulses in 
technology and scientists
aware of the possibilities of the application
of technology in the arts.

[Kon.[Text]], this year's Digital Art Weeks SYMPOSIUM concerns the 
use of
the Performative Surround in the arts and the technology that drives it.
The Performative Surround pertains to the immersive quality and quantity
of the setting of a performative artwork that uses electronic media 
enhancement.
Enhanced media art is any artwork that uses electronic media to 
communicate
in part or in whole its message to the viewer. The viewer may be 
therewith
integrated into the performative arena through the use of the 
communicative
powers of the applied media.

In a series of lectures, demonstrations, panels and performances, 
artists
and researcher will examine the use of electronic media in 
articulating the
performer's presence through the possibilities of the multi-
sensuality of
electronic media. The possibilities of blurring the divide between 
public
and performer to bond them through the powers of dissemination and 
inclusion
inherent within the technology behind the performative surround will 
also
be considered as well as how communication between both performer and =

public
can be interactively networked in real time through various forms of 
computer
enhanced dialoging.

The organizers of the Digital Art Weeks ETH Zurich are seeking 
presentations,
demonstrations and performances on all themes specific to performance =

using
electronic media that explore a concept of the Performative Surround 
in terms
of how computer-mediated communication and dialog takes place between =

performers
and viewers and how it tends to aid in dissolving the divide between 
performer
and viewer. Submissions of both theoretical and empirical studies are =

invited
from the perspectives of the performing arts and computer science and as
well as other topics relevant to the Performative Surround and it 
technology
basis. Suggested submission topics for papers, demonstrations and 
performance
include, but are not limited to the following themes:

1. Media Enhanced Artwork in the areas of Performance, Dance and 
Sound-Art
2. Laptop Music (including Live-Coding!) & Film Accompaniment (Live-
Cinema &
    Re-Scoring)
3. Mobile Art & Music Works that explore Performer Networking and 
Audience
    Participation
4. Net-poetry and literature & computer mediated communication
    (i.e., Hyper-Media Embedding)
5. Grammar- or Syntactically based Software Systems for Multimedia 
Systems

The organizers of the Digital Art Weeks ETH Zurich are seeking 
participants
for a series of PANELS concerning the following themes in 
relationship to
the Performative Surround:

1. Software Innovations relevant to all aspects of Computer Mediated
    Communication and its application in the performing arts.
2. Live Cinema, Expanded Video, Film Rescoring & Immersive Audio Space &
    Video Space
3. Media Enhanced Performance
4. Projects concerning the dissolve of the Performer-Audience & Private
    Space-Pubic Space Divide
