 1-3, 2001.  The symposium will consist of paper sessions, panel
 discussions, art exhibitions, music concerts, animations, mixed media
 works, video, dance, experimental theater and scientific visualization.
 In an effort to demystify the artistic process and create a forum for
 dialogue, we are encouraging all presenters and artists to attend the
 symposium and speak about their work.
 The Center encourages research papers and presentations in the specific
 area of "FEEDBACK: Perception and Interaction in the Electronic Arts"
 and in the general areas of Interactivity, Virtual Reality, Cognition,
 Information Technologies, Applications in Video and Film, Music
 (composition, performance, theory, interactivity, etc.), Experimental
 Theater, Compositional Process, Innovative Use of Technology in
 Education, Computer Simulations of Physical Phenomena, Scientific
 Visualization and Social and Ethical Issues in Arts and Technology.
 All submissions should be accompanied by a one page abstract for a
 presentation about the work and each application should be prepared to
 attend the symposium and make a presentation (paper, poster session,
 short talk) about their work.
 Papers and Presentations:
 A detailed two-page abstract or complete paper including complete
 technical requirements should be submitted by email or mail.  Upon
 acceptance, finished papers must be submitted electronically following
 the specific format of the symposium or in camera-ready form by January
 15, 2001: Word, 10-12 font size, 8.5 x 11 sheet.  Papers may be grouped

 with accompanying score, where appropriate.  Tapes for selection
 purposes should be on cassette, CD's or DAT.  Tapes for performance
 should be CD, ADAT or DAT.  Video works should be 3/4 inch Umatic or 1/2
 inch VHS.  Musicians, dancers and actors may be available for live
 performance pieces. All submissions should be accompanied by a one page

 Computer-generated or -aided dance and theater is being solicited for
 live demonstrations or for videotaped presentations.  Specially produced
 dance or theater videos are of particular interest as opposed to concert
 tapes or other archival uses of video.  Also of interest are proposals
 for workshops, demonstrations of software for dance or theater
 notation,  choreographic analysis,  interactive studies and/or
 multi-media studies of performance in dance &  theater.  All submissions
 should be accompanied by a one page abstract for a presentation at the

 Panels:
 Proposals for panels are encouraged.  Proposals should include
 prospective panelists and should be directed to the theme or new issues
 in collaborative work, as well as ethical issues in arts and technology.
 Scientific Visualizations:
 Submissions are solicited for computer animations and virtual realities
 used to visualize complex scientific processes.  Special emphasis will
 be given to works emphasizing  artistic content or educational modules.
 Submissions should be on CD-ROM or Zip disk format. All submissions
