2nd Call for X

xCoAx 2016: 4th International Conference on Computation, Communication,
Aesthetics and X (July 2016, Bergamo)



Dates: 7-8 July 2016

Location: Bergamo, Italy

Website: (http://www.xcoax.org/) http://xcoax.org/

Deadline for submissions: 31 January 2016



xCoAx is an exploration of the intersection where computational tools and
media meet art and culture, in the form of a multi-disciplinary enquiry on
aesthetics, computation, communication and the elusive x factor that
connects them all.

Since 2013, xCoAx has been an occasion for international audiences to meet
and exchange ideas, in search for interdisciplinary synergies among computer
scientists, artists, media practitioners and theoreticians at the frontiers
of digital arts and culture. The focus is on the unpredictable overlaps
between the chaos and freedom of creativity and the rules and determinism of
algorithms, between human nature and machine technology, with the aim to
evolve towards new directions in aesthetics.

In 2016 xCoAx will go back to where it started: the S.Agostino campus of the
University of Bergamo, a familiar place made fresh by exquisitely renovated
premises where we look forward to hosting you and your work.



The xCoAx Organising Committee is very proud to announce that the keynote
speaker will be Computer Art pioneer Frieder Nake, with a talk titled “The
Disappearing Masterpiece”.
