Call For Papers

Stereo & Immersive Media 2016: Photography and Sound Research

Universidade Lusófona and Faculdade de Belas Artes, Universidade de Lisboa
27— 29 October 2016

The International Conference Stereo & Immersive Media'16 aims to gather researchers, artists, curators, and archivists working on visual and sound media renowned for their immersive features.

"Stereo" environments (stereoscopic and stereophonic) have been widening the fields of photography and sound since the 19th century, contributing to the emergence of a progressively immersive media culture. This conference aims to bring together photography and sound research fields and their relationship with stereo environments, including other immersive visual media (e.g. panoramas, optical displays or virtual games) as well as sound art practices.

We are inviting proposals for paper presentations, workshops/interactive sessions, posters/exhibits addressing one of the following themes:

1- Stereoscopic Photography (historical and contemporary);
2- Pre-cinema and Immersion;
3- Photographic and Sound Media Archaeology;
4- Panorama, Diorama and 360° Panoramic Photography;
5- Animation, Video games, Augmented and Virtual Reality;
6- Urban behaviour and the Influence of Sound devices;
7- Sonic Art and New Technologies;
8- Performance and Immersive environments;
