IJART is a top venue for high quality research and artworks that advance state-of-the-art contributions in the area of the arts and new technologies. The focus is on the multi-disciplinary emerging area of computational art. With the evolution of intelligent devices, sensors and ambient intelligent/ubiquitous systems, it is not surprising to see many research projects starting to explore the design of intelligent artistic artefacts. This is a new multi-disciplinary area that is still in its infancy. Ambient intelligence(AmI) supports the vision that technology will become invisible, embedded in our natural surroundings, present whenever we need it, attuned to all our senses, adaptive to users and context and autonomously acting. High quality information and content must be available to any user, anywhere, at any time, and on any device.
Movements such as Dada or experiences like Happening or Performance Art were mainly focused on dissolving the barriers between art and life, actor and spectator. AmI technologies aim to bring art to the ordinary people while offering to the artists a creative tool to extend the grammar of the traditional arts. The information environments will be the major drivers of culture.
Papers are encouraged on any topic related to art, technology or the philosophical issues raised by attempts to bridge the gap between art and science. In general, we believe that it is necessary to combine humanism (humanists) and technology (technologists), a mixture of science and art towards a science of general morphology, which will express the universal totality and necessity of human existence. This existence should not be exhausted either on an emotional level or on a logical level.
The objectives of IJART are to address new works, research and performances in the multi-disciplinary emerging area of new technologies and the arts – and to provide a common platform under which this artwork can be published and disseminated. IJART provides a high-quality platform for this purpose.
IJART provides a vehicle to help professionals, academics, researchers ,artists, museum curators, and graduate students working in the field of arts and technology, to disseminate information and to learn from each other's work.
IJART publishes original research papers, review papers, artworks, performances, conference reports, book reviews, notes, commentaries, and news. Special Issues devoted to important topics in the arts and new technologies will occasionally be published.
Suitable topics include but are not limited to:
New media arts, science and technology Interactive and visual theatre Augmented performance in dance Artificial intelligence-based art practice Systems in which the analysis of artworks is used in conjunction with AmI techniques to produce novel objects Systems in which AmI is used to promote the creativity of a human user Autonomic sensor networks and wearable computers in the performing arts Computer vision and optical tracking for music and dance performance Cognitive intelligence and natural intelligence for the arts Collaborative distributed environments Evolutionary art systems that create drawings, images, animations, sculptures, poetry, text, etc. Evolutionary music systems that create musical pieces, sounds, instruments, voices, etc. Digital and wearable cinema Choreographing media for interactive virtual environments Neurobiological base of acting Web art and postmodernism New media actors Social and ethical issues in the arts and technology New media aesthetics
