The Connecticut College Center for Arts and Technology, in conjunction
with the departments of Music, Art, Art History, Dance, Theater, English,
Mathematics/Computer Science, Physics, Physical Education, Psychology
and Linguistics is pleased to announce the fourth Symposium on The Arts
and Technology, 4-6 March 1993. The Symposium will consist of paper
sessions, panel discussions, an art exhibition, and concerts of music, mixed
media works, video, dance, experimental theatre and interactive
performance. Selected papers will be published as Proceedings, and will be
available at the Symposium.


A detailed two page abstract including audio-visual requirements should
be sent to the address below no later than 15 September, 1992. Approved
abstracts will be notified by 15 November 1992. Finished papers must be
submitted in camera-ready form by 15 January, 1993. The Symposium
encourages research presentations and demonstrations in all areas of the
arts and technology but is particularly interested in receiving work
concerned with Interactivity, Virtual Reality, Cognition in the Arts,
Applications in Video and Film, Experimental Theater, The Compositional
Process, Speculative Uses of Technology in Education and examples of
scientific visualization. Other topics include but are not limited to
acoustics, artificial intelligence, psyhco-acoustics, vision, and imaging.


Works of computer-generated or computer-aided art, or computer-
controlled interactive art are encouraged. Animation or other works of
computer art on tape will be shown throughout the Symposium. Slides or
Video Tapes (VHS), and complete descriptions of works should be
submitted no later than 15 September 1993. Accepted artists will be
notified by November 15, 1993. Black-and-white photographs of accepted
works should be sent by 15 January, 1993. Selected works will be
published as an insert in the Proceedings. Funds available for the shipping

(two players), piano, and strings (2,1,1,1).

Works should not exceed 15 minutes in length and should be submitted with
accompanying score, where appropriate, before 15 September 1992. We are
especially interested in receiving a number of interactive performance
compositions and video works. Dance compositions are also encouraged, as
are experimental theater works using "new technology."

Tapes for selection purposes should be on cassette or 1/2 inch VHS. Tapes
for performance should be 15 i.p.s. stereo or quadraphonic, or DAT. Video
works should be 3/4 inch Umatic or 1/2 inch VHS.
