*CAC.2*: Computer Art Congress
Emerging forms of computer art: making the digital sense

http://europia.org/CAC2

March 26, 27, 28, 2008 - Mexico City, Mexico
Organised by:

    The Paragraphe Lab, University of Paris VIII (France), the Monterrey
    Tech Campus Toluca and Campus Estado de México (Mexico), and Europia
    Productions organize the 2nd. edition of Computer Art Congress.
            

*Call for Papers and Art Works*

    The first CAC'2002 observed that the origins of Computer Art (CA)
    are to be found in the fields of Art and Sciences. This duality has
    greatly delayed its recognition. Today, we are witnessing the
    emergence of a multidisciplinary community which has been spurred on
    by the advanced computer sciences. Members of this community share
    certain "conceptions" related to Visual Art in general and to
    Computer Art in particular.
    Nowadays, six years later, we witness an enlargement of Computer Art
    boundaries mainly led by its unusual development. Distance between
    Art and Science has narrowed to the point that CA looks to be quite
    an independent and autonomous field starving to reach its maturity.
     From this perspective, CA cannot evolve separately from the IT
    development strategy. Today, along with digital content production,
    which is in some measure produced accordingly to collective
    intelligence schemes, we also observe emerging forms of CA that
    strive to develop new ways to interact with digital content, new
    artefacts that repurpose digital content and new paradigms that aim
    to make sense of CA.

In this manner, several questions need to be posed and analysed:

     * Does CA have its own identity? If yes, what about it?
     * Does CA belong to the Art universe? If yes, how to situate it?
     * Does CA belong to the digital universe? If yes, how does it fit-in?


AIMS AND SCOPE

    CAC'08, has chosen Mexico, to call artists, authors, creators,
    distributors, instructors, inventors, journalists, managers, producers,
    scientists and technologists, concerned by those emerging artistic
    and technological forms, contributing, collaborating and exchanging
    their art-works, experiences, know-how, knowledge and visions on the
    "digital" Art.
    The Computer Art Congress endeavours to be a common forum for
    exchange between Artists, Researchers, and Technologists involved
    in this artistic area. The topics of the congress were chosen to
    establish a multi-disciplinary environment for participants from
    several
    backgrounds, to discuss how computer/media/network art can take its
    own place in the art.
