Please find enclosed the call for COSIGN, which I hope people will find
interesting and relevant.

COSIGN is currently in its fourth year and brings together artists (both
digital and non-digital) and computer scientists with the intention of
forging links between these communities and providing a stimulating
discussion and cross-fertilisation of ideas. The overarching theme of the
conference is, as always, how we create meaning with and through computers.

We are seeking submission of academic papers (both in the form of full
papers and abstracts), and of artworks (both digital and non-digital). The
proceedings of the previous conferences are all available for free download
from the following address and will give some indication of the diversity of
presentations.

http://www.cosignconference.org

As in previous years, COSIGN will endeavour to support as much as possible
the registration fees and/or accommodation of those presenters who are not
funded by an institution or organisation.

Please distribute the call as widely as possible.

Thank you,

Andy Clarke



*****************************************************************

     First Call For Papers

     COSIGN 2004

     The 4th International Conference on COMPUTATIONAL SEMIOTICS

     University of Split (Croatia)

     14th - 16th September 2004

     http://www.cosignconference.org

*****************************************************************



CONFERENCE SCOPE
================

The creation and interpretation of meaning in interactive digital media
requires the manipulation of signs and/or pre-existing structures of
meaning. COSIGN plays a crucial role in exploring the relationship between
computer systems and sign systems.

The focus of COSIGN is the way in which meaning can be created by, encoded
in, understood by, or produced through, the computer. As such, it is of
interest to computer scientists, digital artists and designers, HCI and AI
practitioners, and a broad range of other critics, theorists and
researchers.

Possible themes include, but are not limited to, the following:

- Software architectures and technologies based upon or inspired by existing
  theories of meaning (such as structuralism or semiotics).
- Structures of meaning in artificial intelligence systems.
- Hypertext/hypermedia and the semantic web as structures of meaning.
- The study, analysis or criticism of digital interactive media using
  methods drawn from structuralism, semiotics or other theories of meaning.
- Narrative/ludic structures in interactive digital media and videogames.
- Interface as sign system.


Media that make use of the unique capabilities of digital systems are of
particular interest to this conference. These include, but are not limited
to, the following:

- Virtual reality systems and virtual environments.
- Hypertext, hypermedia, multimedia and the internet environments.
- Content analysis systems (particularly those that extract higher-level
  meaning).
- The semantic web (and similar systems).
- Digital art, net art and other technology-based or technology-oriented art
  forms.
- Computer games, interactive narratives and other forms of interactive
  entertainment.
- Interface as sign system.


The programme and proceedings of the previous three COSIGN conferences are
available at the conference website:

http://www.cosignconference.org




COSIGN invites submissions in the following categories. For full submission
procedure, guidelines and requirements, please go to:

http://www.cosignconference.org


1. Academic Papers

Submissions in this category can be initially either in the form of an
abstract of 500 words or in the form of a full paper of up to 10 pages (see
http://www.cosignconference.org for full details). After the review process,
authors will be notified of acceptance/modifications.


2. Artworks

COSIGN also invites presentations of artworks relevant to the themes of the
conference. We are interested in all forms/formats of artwork - it need not
be digital art if it is relevant in other ways.

Submissions in this category will be assessed on the basis of documentation
of the work presented in the form of an online website. The website should
include the following:

- A textual description of the proposed artwork and any illustrations.
- A biography of the artist(s)/author(s).
- Contact details.


3. Posters

We also welcome poster presentations of work that is not yet ready for a
full paper, or which would benefit from this more informal mode of
presentation.


4. Demonstrations

Demonstrations of relevant leading-edge work and work in progress are also
invited.


We also welcome proposals which don't fit into these categories (such as
panels, workshops, etc).

All submissions are peer reviewed to ensure the quality and relevance of
those selected. All submissions selected will be included in both the
printed and online proceedings.

As in previous years, COSIGN will endeavour to support as much as possible
the registration fees and/or accommodation of those presenters who are not
funded by an institution or organisation.

LOCATION
========

COSIGN 2004 will be held in Split, Croatia. The city of Split is located in
the South of Croatia, just one or two hours away by ferry from some of the
most attractive Adriatic islands and seaside resorts. It is easy to reach
Split by air or by an overnight ferry from Italy. Split International
Airport is connected with major European airports via Zagreb and Frankfurt.
In the summer months, there are also numerous direct flights from several
European capitals. International ferries and S.N.A.V. speedboat for Split
depart from the Italian port of Ancona.

COSIGN will be hosted by by the Department of Visual Communication, Art
Academy, University of Split. The Department is located in what originally
used to be a Venetian fortress, just a  five-minute walk away from the
historic core of the city. The medieval heart of Split, whose eclectic
architectural style is highly appreciated by art historians, grew from the
palace of the Roman Emperor Diocletian (built between 295 and 305 AD).
Numerous cultural events take place in Split all year round. In September,
the city is home to the International Festival of New Film and Video, with a
vibrant new media section.

Andy Clarke - Kinonet (UK)
Clive Fencott - University of Teeside (UK)
Grethe Mitchell - University of East London and Kinonet (UK)
