>instruments, digital media, CD or interactive compositions are also
>being solicited for "tape only" concerts or live performance. Works
>should not exceed 15 minutes in length and should be submitted with
>accompanying score, where appropriate. Music must be submitted on
>CD for review, with accompanying scores as required. Musicians,
>dancers and actors may be available for live performance pieces. All

>ART
>Submissions of digital art, web art and other technology-based or

>desktop interactive works, self-contained web works, time based
>work, performance and installations will be considered. Acceptance
>may be constrained by technical needs, security and financial
>considerations. Artworks will be reviewed on the basis of
>documentation of the work presented in the form of a website, CD,
>DVD, VHS or slides. Submissions must include a one-page
>description/abstract for presentation at the symposium about the
>work, portfolio (maximum 4 jpegs, no larger than 2 Mb each), brief
>biography, contact details, and complete technical needs and spatial
>requirements

>VIDEO AND FILM
>Submissions of short video or film works that include a significant
>'technology' component in their creation, aesthetic or theme are
>encouraged. The 'tech' involved may be 'high' or 'low', ranging
>from digital animations and motion capture work on the 'high-tech'
>end to various methods of creating film without photography, or
>novel uses of the projector beam on the low tech side. Works that
>display worthy reflections on the nexus of art, society and
>technology, even if created by primarily 'conventional' means, are
>encouraged. Submissions in the category of 'expanded cinema' and
>projection performance will be accepted, but resources are limited
>and artists presenting such work should expect to bring all or much
>of their own essential gear. Submissions must include a one-page
>description/abstract of the work and VHS, DV or DVCAM tape, DVD
>(tape preferred). For works involving anything other than standard
>video or 16mm projection, a complete description of technical and
>space needs is required. Exhibition format will be DV, DVCAM, or
>16mm film (no home-burned DVDs).Selection for screening may be made
>in part on the maker's willingness/ability to attend the symposium.
>
>DANCE AND THEATER
>Computer-generated or computer-aided dance compositions and theater
>works are being solicited for live demonstrations or for videotaped
>presentations. Specially produced dance or theater videos are of
>particular interest as opposed to concert tapes or other archival
>uses of video. Also of interest are proposals for workshops,
>demonstrations of software for dance or theater notation,
>choreographic analysis, interactive studies and/or multi-media
>studies of performance in dance and theater. Performances may be
>accepted, but will be limited by technical needs and financial
>considerations. All submissions should be accompanied by a web site,
>CD, DVD or VHS, and one page description/abstract for presentation
>at the symposium about the work, biography, contact details, and
>complete technical needs and spatial requirements.
