The vision of MOCO'16 is to bring together academics, researchers, engineers, designers, technologists, technocrats, creative artists, anthropologists, museologists, ergonomists and other practitioners interested in the phenomenon of the symbiosis between the human and the creative process, e.g. dancer-digital medias, musician-instrument, craftsman-object etc. This symbiosis takes the form of an interactional and gravitational relationship, where the human element is both a trigger and a transmitter, connecting perception (mind/environment interaction and cognition), knowledge (theoretical understanding of a process) and gesture (semantic motor skills). MOCO'16 invites researchers that have experiences of capturing the combined key elements of perception, knowledge and gesture/movement. MOCO'16 will be of interest to artists who work on the elucidation of the intersection between art, meaning cognition and technology by unlocking the hidden components in
A key feature of the MOCO'16 Symposium will be to open some of its demonstrations and artistic activities to the public-at-large in order to provide this extended audience with the opportunity to be informed about current scientific issues and topics by experts in an informal setting.
These topics overlap and are in no way exhaustive, so we also welcome contributions focussing on other areas, with titles which might include any of the following keywords:
- Finger-based interaction
All submissions should be in pdf format and should use the MOCO’16 template – adapted from ACM SIGCHI template
It is possible for participating authors to submit a demonstration proposal in addition to their regular paper submission by completing the Demo proposal form and sending it along with their submission. Together with the demo proposal form, authors have to provide a link to a video about their work. The demo proposal form is mandatory for all demo submissions and must include details about technical set-up and space requirements.
Online submission: All submissions must be made through the Open Conference System (OCS)
