Call for Papers


ArtsIT is meant to be a place where people in arts, with a keen interest in modern IT technologies, meet with people in IT, having strong ties to arts in their works. Now in its third edition, ArtsIT has become a leading scientific forum for dissemination of cutting-edge research results in the area of Arts, Design & Technology.
The Milano event will bring together leading researchers and practitioners from academia, arts and industry to present their innovative work and discuss all aspects and challenges in a stimulating environment. The event aims to foster trans-disciplinary alliances and co-operation between IT researchers, artists and industry members as well as to offer artists novel creative tools that expand the grammar of the traditional arts.
The main focus of this edition is working for the artists: presenting tools, systems, models, artworks/performances/shows, empirical studies that may enrich the possibilities for artists and creative people with working with new media technologies.



The call for papers is aimed at people across a wide spectrum of interests and disciplines including computer science, design, arts, sociology, anthropology, psychology.
We cordially invite prospective authors to submit unpublished research papers with novel contributions in the following areas:
  • Interactive Art (innovative interactive installations)
  • Augmented Performing Arts (innovative performances and shows enhanced by ICT technologies)
  • Multimedia (Integration of different media, such as virtual reality systems, audio, performing arts, etc.)
  • New Media Technologies (innovative systems/frameworks/tools for creating augmented artworks and performances, such as tracking sensors, wearable computers, animation techniques, etc.)
  • Ethnography studies about the artistic practice finalized to build pattern languages for Human Computer Interaction


Conference proceedings and publications

All submitted contributions will undergo peer review. Reviews will be single blind (i.e., include authorship information with the submitted paper). Accepted papers will be published in Springer's LNICST series and will appear in the SpringerLink, one of the largest digital libraries online that covers a variety of scientific disciplines, as well as in the ICST's own EU Digital Library (EUDL). LNICST volumes are submitted for inclusion to leading indexing services, including DBLP, Google Scholar, ACM Digital Library, ISI Proceedings, EI Engineering Index, CrossRef, Scopus.

Selected papers will appear in the International Journal of Arts & Technology (Inderscience)

Authors with accepted special contributions will be asked to submit an extended version of their paper. A typical length for a long paper is between 20 and 30 pages. Please also note that 20-30 pages unformatted ordinary MS Word text would typically result in a shorter document of 12-20 pages, formatted according to the Springer guidelines.
