"Call for Proposals: Inviting Submissions for the Symposium"
2003-11-05 until 2003-12-15
Subtle Technologies, University of Toronto
Recognized internationally as a unique forum that encourages new
insights and collaborations between artists and scientists, Subtle
Technologies challenges physicists, geneticists, engineers,
mathematicians, astronomers, architects, dancers, media artists and
musicians to contemplate how art and science act upon one another and
reshape perspectives. Throughout four days of presentations, we aim to
cover a wide variety of subjects. There is not an established
programming theme. People who have attended the festival remark that
although the individual topics at the festival are extremely interesting
it is often the threads that are woven between the various presentations
that make the festival a unique experience.
The programming of the symposium is shaped by the submissions of each
year and is meant to broaden the scope of disciplines or areas of
research for those who attend. In the past, topics addressed have
included quantum physics , quantum computing and other unconventional
computing technologies, music, dance, consciousness research,
holography,animation, genetics, sonic explorations, sensing systems and
devices, social systems, complexity theory, and artificial intelligence.
We encourage demonstrations, and can accommodate / provide technical
support for almost any type of presentation.
All past presentations are archived on our website. We strongly urge
those interested in submitting a proposal to aquaint themselves with our
history of programming.
The festival is open to the public and presentations must be accessible
to a non-specialized audience.Each presentation must fill 40 minutes,
followed by a ten minute question and answer period.
It is strongly recommended that parties interested in submitting a
proposal visit our archives at subtletechnologies.com to get
better idea of our programming.
All presenters receive an honorarium and their festival registration
fees are waived.
Deadline for Proposals: December 15, 2003.
