CADE: Computers in Art and Design Education: Stillness


Call for Papers and Abstract Submissions

First Call for Papers and Abstract Submissions: abstract submission for refereed papers :: Deadline 12 January 2007 :: STILLNESS: 2007 Biennale of Electronic Arts Perth Education Program: International Conference: CADE: Computers in Art and Design Education :: 12 - 14 September 2007, Perth, Western Australia.

The Biennale of Electronic Arts Perth (BEAP) is Australia's pre-eminent festival dedicated to showcasing innovative works of art in the areas of new media, electronic screen, sound and interactive media and is the largest and most visionary electronic arts event in the region. Through a broad program of exhibitions, conferences and public talks, BEAP provides a focus for discussion and exploration of the emergent aesthetic, social and technological implications that surround the electronic arts, in all its possible forms, whether visual, audio, interactive, temporal, experiential, digital, 'bio' or 'nano'.

The Computers in Art and Design Education (CADE) conference is a major international event for those interested in the exploration of ideas at the intersection of pedagogy, arts, design, science, and technology. The 2007 conference will provide a focus for shared learning, dialogue and interaction that directly informs professional methodologies and practice.

In 2007 CADE partners with the Biennale for its first conference outside Europe, creating a new focus for exploring the latest research and practice within creative arts education at the point where the 'digital' is both a challenge and a strength.

Perth, the capital of the state of Western Australia, has a distinct creative community that celebrates the uniqueness of Western Australia's stunning bio-diverse environment and combines Indigenous, European and Southeast Asian cultures.

Internationally recognised for its commitment to research in bio and electronic arts in tertiary education, Perth welcomes delegates to explore and reflect on global perspectives from a pivotal point within the Asia-Pacific region.

Conference theme: we invite educators, theorists and creative arts practitioners to meet in Perth, Australia, to explore the paradox of "Stillness." The concept of "stillness" will become an anchor for events in the ceaseless flows of data and provide a reflective moment for new ideas to emerge and interact, explode or coalesce, blossom or fade. BEAP will be supporting and encouraging a community of artists to explore: * Stillness as Sound * Stillness as Bio * Stillness as Data * Stillness as Duration. CADE will challenge you to confront these conceptual issues.

Call for papers: We invite contributions for paper presentations, posters and panel discussions that address the conference theme of "stillness." Papers should provide theoretical understanding, analysis and documentation of creative arts and digital technologies and related contexts for educational development.

The term creative arts includes: new media, multimedia, web design, interactive arts, computer games and mixed media performance and traditional disciplines (such as fine arts, sculpture, photography, printmaking, fashion and textiles, graphic design, illustration, 3D design, product design interior design, architecture, drama, theatre, dance and music).

All submitted abstracts, poster submissions and papers will be double blind peer reviewed by an international panel. Submissions accepted and presented at the conference will be published in the conference proceedings.

500-word abstracts required by 12 January 2007. Full submission can be made through the conference website. Follow link to conferences for http://cedar.humanities.curtin.edu.au/conferences/cade/index.cfm
