To be featured in a special issue of Leonardo published in conjunction with the SIGGRAPH 2010 conference.

SIGGRAPH 2010, in collaboration with Leonardo/ISAST, honors not only artists and artwork, but also the process of making art and its place in society. We seek papers that illuminate and explore how people understand the changing roles of artists and art-making in our increasingly networked, multi-sensory, online world.

In addition to the core topics of the digital arts and interactive techniques of SIGGRAPH 2010, Art Papers will explore the theme of SIGGRAPH 2010’s juried art gallery, “TouchPoint: The Haptic Exchange Between Digits.” Authors will present Art Papers in 20-minute sessions with five minutes of Q&A.

Papers can be submitted in four categories-Applications, Monograph, Project, or Survey – and accepted papers will be published in a special issue of Leonardo, Journal of the International Society of the Arts, Sciences and Technology. The issue also will include visual documentation of the works exhibited in the SIGGRAPH 2010 juried art gallery “TouchPoint: The Haptic Exchange Between Digits.” Publication of this special issue of Leonardo will coincide with SIGGRAPH 2010.

The Art Papers online submission form will be available at www.siggraph.org/s2010/for_submitters/art_papers in October 2009. Submissions are due by 22:00 UTC/GMT, 7 7 January 2010.

Art papers will be evaluated by members of the Art Papers Advisory Board, the Art Papers Committee, and external reviewers. Once reviews are complete, the Advisory Board and Committee will meet to deliberate the final outcome of each paper. All decisions of the Advisory Board and Committee are final.
