DEADLINE September 15th, 2006
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 iDMAa Journal. Submissions will be for one of four main conference categories.
Please send all submissions by September 15th, 2006 to:
Aleksandra Vinokurova at [email protected].
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.
