Calls for papers--Art, technology, and moving images

From: Sarah Lowengard <sarahl>
Date: Tuesday, January 6, 1998
I was trawling the SHOT web site, and thought these three calls might
be of interest to the conservation community.

  1. Art and Technology: In the Age of Information
  Liverpool, UK - 1-3 July 1998

    This conference is aimed at a wide range of participants. In
    addition to academic specialists in areas such as Art Theory and
    History, Cultural/Media Studies, Sociology, Philosophy,
    Psychology, and Literature, we would like to invite artists,
    technologists, art critics, art teachers as well as interested
    members of the public to take part in this conference. Indeed,
    one of our main aims is to create discussion among these
    different groups about art and technology in the age of

    Contributions for this conference are therefore invited from all
    the different groups mentioned above. The form of such
    contributions is negotiable. While we invite the academic paper
    that will analyse the art-technology-information relationship in
    conceptually imaginative and provocative ways, we also invite
    contributions that will express and explore the conference theme
    in visual forms e.g., demonstrations, small exhibitions,
    performances, computer installations, etc. If you are not sure
    about the appropriateness of your intended contribution, please
    feel free to contact one of the organisers informally (see
    contact details below).

    Five copies of a one-page abstract of your contribution are
    required by Saturday, 31st January, 1998. If you are unsure
    about the suitability of your contribution, please contact one
    of the organisers well before this date. Five copies of your
    abstract should be sent to:

    Tate Gallery Liverpool

    deployment and dissemination of cinematographic technologies
    from pre-cinema to digital culture. The conference is organised

    narrative vehicles, documentaries, monitoring devices.
