"Call for Submissions to Subtle Technologies 2001"
2001-01-12 until 2001-02-17
InterAccess Media Arts Centre
Speakers are being saught to present at the fourth annual
Subtle Technologies Conference in Toronto.
The Subtle Technologies Conference is an opportunity for scientists and
artists to come together and share each others language in those areas
which are still searching for definitions, explanations and meaning.
This conference blurs the boundaries between art and science. The commitee is
looking for speakers to provide a global perspective on the exploration
of subtle phenomena and its representations.
Approaches that go beyond
mainstream theories and would be considered controversial are welcome.
The conference also has a mandate to explore forgotten or lost
technologies. Some of the topics which we are interested in having
represented by scientists
and artists include but are not limited to: consciousness research,
physics including quantum computing and other unconventional computing
technologies, holographic modeling, mathematical explorations including
neural networks and fuzzy systems, biomagnetics, alternative energy
systems, chaos theory, genetics, sonic explorations, alternative
healing modalities, bioenergy, pharmacology, theories of cosmology,
neurobiology, sensing systems and devices, cybernetics, artificial
It is their goal to have a varied program to provide a forum for the
cross pollination of ideas. Presentations will be 50
minutes long including questions. An honorarium will be offered to
all speakers. Since the audience will be from diverse backgrounds the
presentation should be accessible to a general audience. Please send a
one page abstract of the topic you would like to present to the
below. If you have any questions, feel free to contact them. If you know
who would be interested in speaking, please pass this invitation along
to them. The
deadline for submissions is February 15 2001. The Subtle Technologies
is sponsored by InterAccess Media Arts Centre and Science for Peace.
