Call For Papers

**xCoAx 2020: 8th International Conference on**
**Computation, Communication, Aesthetics and X**

8–10 July 2020, Graz, Austria

http://xcoax.org/

Please feel free to distribute this call to your networks.

**Submission deadline: 31 January 2020**

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.

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
thresholds between digital arts and culture. Starting in 2013 in
Bergamo, xCoAx has so far taken place also in Porto, Glasgow, Lisbon,
Madrid, and Milan.

The focus of xCoAx is on the unpredictable overlaps between the freedom
of creativity and the rules of algorithms, between human nature and
machine technology, with the aim to evolve towards new directions in
aesthetics.

In 2020 xCoAx will take place in Graz, Austria, directly adjoining the
symposium **Algorithms that Matter (ALMAT)**. On the two days preceding
xCoAx, ALMAT gathers artists and researchers to present and discuss the
relations between algorithmic agency and artistic research, the practice
of algorithmic experimentation and its impact on compositional process.
ALMAT has issued a separate call for participation –
https://almat.iem.at/symposium.html – and reduced combi-tickets are
available for xCoAx + ALMAT.
