I am pleased to announce the call for works (papers, posters, installations, and performance works) for the upcoming Contemplative Practices for the 21st Century University conference that will take place at Virginia Tech, March 10-12, 2016.
As part of the conference, Virginia Tech Institute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology (ICAT) invites proposals for art, installations, and technology demonstrations with focus on contemplative practice. While proposed art and installations should also leverage technology, within the context of this submission we define technology in the broadest terms possible.
All submissions will be reviewed by an interdisciplinary panel consisting of ICAT faculty and will be assessed on their feasibility within the context of available conference infrastructure and resources. Selected projects will be showcased as part of the reception and a concert at the Moss Arts Center. Where appropriate, some submissions may be also presented in a paper and/or poster format as part of the « Technology » track.
Authors of selected submissions will be expected to attend the conference. We are particularly interested in performance works that leverage ICAT’s unique infrastructure, including Cube and Perform Studio. To apply, please see the ICAT Submissions Form on the website below. The deadline for submissions is December 18, 2015.
