CreateWorld 2011 – Call for Engagement

The AUC is calling for submissions for its upcoming conference on the digital arts to be held in November 2011.

Given the success of the last four events, the AUC will again be hosting the CreateWorld conference –  a 3 day performance, presentation, and professional development event, specifically for academic and higher-education technical staff in the digital arts disciplines.

Invited speakers and keynotes this year include a range of experts in various related fields.

CreateWorld will be held at Griffith University’s Brisbane South Bank Campus. The conference will feature a wide range of academic and technical presenters from the University and industry sectors as well as hands-on technical workshops. There will be a range of keynotes and the very popular panel sessions and hypotheticals.

For an overview of the dynamic nature of the conference, see the CreateWorld section.

Who should attend?

CreateWorld is aimed specifically at practitioners, academics, research teams, and technical staff across the digital arts. Sesssions include presentations of new media work, performance, techniques and approaches in practice-led research fields including photography, cyber-arts, music, e-learning, film, animation and design.

There are no set themes but similar papers will be grouped together for panel presentations. This will offer more lively discussion. Themes may include, but are not be limited to, emerging trends in ubiquitous computing, innovation and creative expression, user generated content, social networks,  and mobility.

As with all AUC events, the AUC will subsidise attendance including costs for accommodation, travel, and registration for presenters.

Call For Engagement

CreateWorld is different to most academic conferences in that it promotes performance as well as traditional academic presentations. Formats are flexible; spoken or performed presentation, installation, screenings, new media and audience engagement.

Submissions for all presentations/installations/performance in abstract form via email.

Because this conference is attended by both academic and general staff, the option is for you to state whether you wish to submit as a peer reviewed paper.

An international review panel is in place for those requesting peer review.

Please propose presentations, workshops, events and papers in a short email <>  by Friday September 23rd, 2011

Submission of final peer review paper: Friday October 21st, 2011
