xCoAx 2020: 8th International Conference on Computation, Communication, Aesthetics and X

Inauguração: Quarta-feira, 8 de Julho, 18h00 (CEST)

http://2020.xcoax.org/

A xCoAx é uma conferência internacional que promove a discussão e descoberta de sinergias nas fronteiras das artes digitais, sob a forma de um questionamento multidisciplinar sobre estética, computação, comunicação e o elusivo factor X que os liga.

Após edições anteriores em Milão, Madrid, Lisboa, Bergamo, Glasgow e Porto, a edição de 2020 era para ser realizada em Graz, com uma conferência e apresentações no MUMUTH - House of Music and Music Theatre, e uma exposição no Forum Stadtpark, tudo sob os auspícios do IEM - Institute of Electronic Music and Acoustics, na University of Music and Performing Arts Graz.

Em vez disso, a emergência global da CoViD-19 impôs um rápido repensar da natureza e da estrutura da xCoAx, que está agora on-line, ainda composta por papers, obras de arte e performances. Pela primeira vez, a xCoAx é um evento totalmente aberto, onde todos podem participar e entrar da discussão!

Inauguração:
A inauguração da xCoAx 2020 terá lugar no Zoom (ID da reunião: 858 6972 5053 Senha: 978675) no dia 8 de Julho às 18h00 (CEST).

xCoAx 2020: 8th International Conference on Computation, Communication, Aesthetics and X

Opening: Wednesday, 8th July, 6:00 PM CEST

http://2020.xcoax.org/

xCoAx is an international conference that promotes the discussion and discovery of synergies at the frontiers of digital art, in the form of a multidisciplinary questioning on aesthetics, computing, communication and the elusive X factor that connects them all. 

After previous editions in Milan, Madrid, Lisbon, Bergamo, Glasgow and Porto, the 2020 edition was meant to take place in Graz, with a conference and performances at MUMUTH – House of Music and Music Theatre, and an exhibition at the Forum Stadtpark, all under the auspices of IEM – Institute of Electronic Music and Acoustics, at the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz.

Instead, the global CoViD-19 emergency imposed a rapid rethinking of the nature and structure of xCoAx, which is now online, still comprised of papers, artworks and performances. For the first time, xCoAx is a totally open event where everyone can attend and join the discussion!

Opening event:
The opening of xCoAx 2020 will take place on Zoom(Meeting ID: 858 6972 5053 Password: 978675) on July 8th at 6 PM CEST. The Organising Committee will be extremely happy to welcome you there to meet, greet, network, and exchange impressions and opinions.

Papers have been organised as follows:
There are 6 different sessions, where papers with stimulating connections and overlaps were put together.
The authors were invited to record a 15-minute presentation of their work and to hold a Q&A panel within their session, which was moderated by a member of the Organising Committee.
You can access all the material: abstracts, papers in PDF format, video presentations and the Q&A by accessing xCoAx’s website at 2020.xcoax.org and clicking on “Paper Sessions” in the navigation menu.
You can join the discussion on Twitter by replying to the tweet at the end of each session page.

Artworks have been organised as follows:
The xCoAx 2020 website features a page for each artwork that was selected for the exhibition, where the artists present their work with visual documentation, an abstract, a prerecorded artist talk and other media assets.
You can access each artwork’s page by accessing xCoAx’s website at 2020.xcoax.org and clicking on “Artworks” in the navigation menu.

The Doctoral Symposium has been organised as follows:
Doctoral students whose research proposals were accepted were invited to a discussion and feedback session with our chairs Marko Ciciliani and Philip Galanter. The symposium has usually taken place in a more secluded part of xCoAx, and we kept with this tradition by not recording the online session to allow for a more relaxed environment where to exchange opinions and give advice. However, the xCoAx 2020 website features a page with all the research proposals discussed during the symposium, which you can access by going to xCoAx’s website at 2020.xcoax.org and clicking on “Doctoral Symposium” in the navigation menu.
