Deadline for submission of proposals is November 1, 2000
The fourth international Digital Arts & Culture Conference will be held in Providence, Rhode Island, April 26-28, 2001. This conference aims to embrace and explore the cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural theory and practice of contemporary digital arts and culture. Seeking to foster greater understanding about digital arts and culture across a wide spectrum of cultural, disciplinary, and professional practices, the conference cultivates an eclectic and collaborative forum. To this end, we cordially invite scholars, researchers, artists, computer professionals, and others who are working within the broadly defined areas of digital arts and culture to join in the DAC discourse community by submitting proposals for presentations at DAC2001.
Presentations may be in the form of scholarly papers or presentations; or performances and installations incorporating electronic and digital technologies and media. Single submission per person only, please. Collaborative presentations are encouraged, and to aid our collaborative and cross-disciplinary objective, we are primarily seeking submissions for four main types of sessions:
Papers: Individual papers should be approximately 20 minutes long. Feel free to suggest a common topic that might serve as a heading for panels consisting of 3 individual papers. No short abstracts, please! Only full papers or abstracts of at least 1500 words will be considered for presentation at the conference.
Short papers: Should not exceed 1000 words in length (abstracts should be above 250 words), for 10-minute presentations, including Q&A. This is a chance to present work in progress, and other ideas which does not require a full paper presentation.
Forums: Forums should consist of 3-6 presenters who will have 5-10 minutes each to deliver position statements on a theme or topic set forth by the forum organizer. Forums are roundtable type events that should accommodate ample time for discussion among panelists and audience.
Performances, Installations: See separate call
Submission format: Paper proposals should be in the form of full papers of not more than 5000 words, or extended abstracts of at least 1500 words. Panel and forum proposals should include abstracts for each of the proposed presentations in that total. Brief bios for each presenter must accompany the proposals. All proposals must be submitted through the online submission form at the DAC2001 web site on or before November 1, 2000. Notification of acceptance will be given by December 15, 2000.
