    TEI 2023 Arts Track - Call for Submissions

    =============Theme===========Technology distances us from each other, causing the social tissue to
    fall apart. ItÔÇÖs time for the tangible revolutions - being together
    without screens. Screens have created a distance from the environment
    that has shaped us, destroying the work of evolution that through
    hundreds of thousands of years has adapted both the mind and body to the
    ever changing environment. Nowadays the contact of the digital and
    physical world has been dominated by the interaction with intermediary
    screens whose flat surfaces have limited the sensory experience. Screens
    cause the observation and manipulation of symbols that remove the person
    from reality.

    Smartphones, VRs, ARs, XRs, more and more screens around us. The need
    for a tangible revolution is more than ever before, since our
    understanding of the world is based on motion, action, active and bodily experience.

    We warmly invite artists who would like to show that another world is
    possible. The world with less screens and more closeness - in short, to
    be together without screens. For that we need a revolution, the tangible revolution.

    ============Topics===========We seek submissions that articulate viewpoints and facilitate dialogue
    around the TEI conference themes as well as topics including but not
    limited to:

    - Hybrid assemblies that combine digital, physical, biological, and/or
    social systems
    - Artistic explorations of shape-, weight-, color- and size changing
    materials (biosensors and bioactuators, shape memory alloys, thermo
    and photochromic dyes, etc.)
    - Wearable, on-body, and in-body computing
    - Novel interactions realized through traditional crafts or
    unconventional materials, professional artistry, craft, or
    musicianship
    - Hybrid bodies, prosthetics, human augmentation, posthumanism
    - Artistic reflections on the social, political, ethical, and aesthetic
    dimensions of hybrid systems
    - Interactive installations that critically reflect on hybrid
    materiality

    Accepted works will be exhibited in the Arts Track exhibition at the
    Copernicus Science Centre.

    ====================┌tes===================Artwork submission deadline: 30 September, 2022 Notification of
    acceptance: 16 October, 2022 Camera-ready deadline: January 6, 2023 TEI
    2023 conference: February 26 - March 1, 2023

    ============Submission Guidelines===============The Arts Track welcomes submissions of artworks from a wide range of
    practitioners and researchers in areas such as arts, music, design, new
    media, biology, material science, and technology. We welcome submissions
    from artists at all career stages, including students and independent practitioners.

    The submission should include:
    - The artwork paper discussing the artwork theme and description (see
    Format below)
    - Documentation such as images, sketches, drafts, books, videos, etc.
    Please add content or the link to the content in the artwork paper
    pdf. The links should be unrestricted to ensure easy access for the
    reviewing process.
    - A pdf document with a technical requirement description
    - Optional: An ethical statement. Any discussion point in the ethical
    statements of NIME publications is a good start:
    https://www.nime.org/ethics/
    - Optional: An artist biography for the participating artist(s) (300
    words or fewer per bio).

    Format: TEI 2023 uses the new ACM workflow for submission templates and published papers. This requires the use of a simplified one-column
    template for submission, while the final two-column paper has to be
    rendered for publication after acceptance. Submissions should be in the
    form of a short (2 - 4 pages plus references) paper in PDF format that
    will appear in the TEI Proceedings and will be indexed in the ACM
    Digital Library. For further details please follow the provided
    instructions or contact our Publication Chair.

    File Size: Please note that the maximum size of your submission should
    not exceed 40 Mb.. It will be possible to submit large videos via a link
    to online content (e.g., YouTube or Vimeo).

    Arts track reviews are single-blind, the submissions should therefore
    include the author(s) name and affiliation.

    Submissions are accepted through the submission portal at the link
    below: https://new.precisionconference.com/submissions

    =================Selection Process============Submissions will be selected based on their artistic merits and their
    engagement with issues relevant to the field of tangible, embedded, and embodied interactive art. In addition, the logistical constraints of the
    venue may determine the eligibility of submitted projects.
    Confidentiality of submissions will be maintained during the review
    process. All rejected submissions will be kept confidential in
    perpetuity.

    Submissions will be reviewed on the following aspects:

    Relevance - The work must have a tangible aspect, in the form of an installation, performance, object, or physical event. Artistic - It must operate significantly and compellingly through its formal, conceptual,
    and experiential properties. Embodiment - The work must engage the human
    body beyond the traditional screen-pointer interface. Computational
    aspect - It must involve computational technology (digital, biological,
    or analog) in some aspect of its form or function. Positioning - The
    work must be positioned within related areas of theory and/or practice. Feasibility- The submission should include all details to realise the
    work, including tech details, budget, and feasibility explanation.

    ======================Attendance====================Artists (or their delegates) will need to be available for installation
    and bump-out, and for facilitating interaction with their artwork at
    scheduled times. The authors are expected to finance their travel and
    material budgets. One author of each accepted submission must register
    for the conference before the early registration deadline in order for
    the final paper version to appear in the conference proceedings. Contact
    For any questions please contact: arts_chairs@tei.acm.org
