The iDMAa Call for Papers deadline is approaching. Please consider submitting a paper and share this call with faculty or graduate students who would be interested in participating.
The eleventh annual International Digital Media and Arts Association Conference will be held November 6-8, 2013 in Laguna Beach, California. iDMAa invites you to share your thoughts and work in digital media and arts.
The deadline for accepting submissions for panel proposals and presentations is midnight, Sunday, September 1, 2013. To ensure rich dialog and exchange, we ask that presentations conform to 20 slides, 20 seconds per slide format. (See the link on Lightning Talk format for more information). Authors interested in organizing panels will need to submit single word file containing an abstract and vita for each panel participant.
The conference will include keynote speakers, lively pecha kucha presentations, a juried art exhibition highlighting creative research in interactive media and digital arts, topical discussions focused both on future of digital media in the industry and also evolving pedagogies in academia.
Call for Papers and Projects:
While we welcome papers and projects whose focus is on “the future,” we are equally interested in papers and projects that question and subvert this idea of what lies before us. From disruptive technologies to neo-luddite practices, the conference wants to examine all sides of our unquestioning inclination to privilege “progress” and to look forward. Where is it that we are hurrying to arrive-and do we really want to arrive there? This year’s conference theme is both a celebration of that which we build and study that brings about this halcyon future, and a joyous, subversive questioning of those practices and beliefs that underlie this impulse to look forward.
Creative research that demonstrates the convergence of different disciplines, media, cultures, and technologies is particularly encouraged. The conference will contain several tracks of programming that expand on the conference theme in the following areas: Read more on Call: 11th annual International Digital Media and Arts Association Conference…
