Palácio Ceia

The goal of the conference is to promote the interest in the current digital/media culture and its intersection with art and technology as an important research field while focusing on the study of the digital media / computer artefacts embracing topics covering their conceptualization, design, creative/art practice/research processes, computational implementation, exhibition and fruition as well their role on today’s information and knowledge society. Also welcome are articles fostering the establishment of the conceptual foundations of an artefact theory in the digital media world.

ARTeFACTo 2018 aims at giving greater visibility to artefact creators or interveners, being these theorists or practitioners, establishing a common space for discussion and exchange of new experiences from transdisciplinary humanistic and holistic perspectives while fostering a better understanding about digital arts and culture across a wide spectrum of cultural, disciplinary, and professional practices.

To this end, we cordially invite scholars, teachers, researchers, artists, computer professionals, and others who are working within the broadly defined areas of digital arts, culture and education with specific focus on artefacts and installations to join us.

At ARTeFACTo 2018 we will be testing a new ground-breaking concept: the brainshop = BRAINstorming + workSHOP. There will be three co-creative sessions, presided by leading names in the transdisciplinary areas of Art, Technology and Science, where all participants will be invited to take part. The sessions will last for approximately 30-40 minutes and aim at producing as output research and collaboration ideas for projects, performances, artworks, artefacts or future conference tracks. This will be an opportunity for all the participants to creatively engage in profitable discussions, to work with authors, artists and experienced researchers in their areas of expertise, potentially giving birth to new research projects and collaborations.  Conclusions from all three brainshops will be presented before the closing session by their respective leaders.

17th of November, 15:00

Private bus towards the Belém district. The tour includes:

Visit to The Monument to the Discoveries (in Portuguese “Padrão do Descobrimentos”).  Created by Cottinelli Telmo (1897–1948) and the sculptor Leopoldo de Almeida (1898–1975), it was first erected in 1940, in a temporary form, as part of the Portuguese World Exhibition. Built with perishable materials, it had a light iron and cement frame, while the moulded sculpture was made of gypsum (formed of plaster and burlap, and reinforced by a wooden and iron structure). The monument was reconstructed in 1960 to mark 500 years since the death of Prince Henry, the Navigator. This time it was made of concrete and rose-tinted Leiria stone masonry, with the sculptures made of Sintra limestone masonry. The Centro Cultural das Descobertas was opened in 1985. Architect Fernando Ramalho remodelled the interior, giving the monument a viewpoint, auditorium and exhibition hall.

Visit to MAAT – The Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology. Presenting itself as a new cultural centre in the city of Lisbon, the MAAT represents an ambition to host national and international exhibitions with contributions by contemporary artists, architects and thinkers. The modern building is the central figure of the 38.000 square meters Campus that the EDP Foundation occupies on the banks of the Tejo River. Here, the iconic power station dating back to the early 1900s, and the new kunsthall designed by London architecture firm Amanda Levete Architects, coexist and offer a diverse cultural programme. The Tejo Power Station has been modernised, maintaining its dedication to science and providing four galleries for the MAAT programming. The two buildings are united by an outdoor park, conceived by landscape architect Vladimir Djurovik, offering an outstanding leisure space along Lisbon’s riverbank.

Tasting of Pastel de Nata (Lisbon’s special custard tarts).

Return to Palácio Ceia.

Submissions

ARTeFACTo 2018 has the format of a conference with technical sessions, invited talks, discussion panels, and exhibition areas for artefacts and installations. Contributions can be in the form of full papers, short papers and proposals for posters and artefacts exhibitions / art installations.

Authors are invited to submit:

  • A full paper of six to ten pages for oral presentation. Artefact descriptions are welcome, embracing part or the overall creation process, from seminal concept, implementation until the final exhibition preparation or the fruition experience analysis;
  • A short paper up to four pages for posters or the conceptual and technical information concerningartefact / artinstallations, computer artwork proposals.

SUBMISSIONS THROUGH EASYCHAIR (closed after September 10th).

Submissions are accepted in the conference official languages: English and Portuguese. If your paper or artefact / installation proposal is in Portuguese, please prepare an English version of the title and abstract, as this is required by ACM for publishing in the Digital Library.

ARTeFACTo 2018 uses a double-blind reviewing process. As such, submitted papers / artefacts / installation proposals should not have author and institutional identification in the title and header areas, nor in the body of the paper.

Explicit self-references should be avoided, instead, authors citing their own prior work should discuss it in the third person (“Previous work by <Author> [X1]…” instead of “In our previous work [X1]…”). Authors should also avoid mentioning the names of institutions where the work was done (“participants were recruited from the university campus”, instead of “participants were recruited from the <Institution name>”). Authors should also avoid clear identification marks of their affiliation in figures and supplementary material and remove metadata from submission files.

In addition to the text, made anonymous, for each paper, separate identification info must be provided at Easy Chair (easychair.org/conferences/?conf=artefacto2018), containing:

  • Name, organization, mailing and e-mail addresses of each author
  • Name of the contact author
  • A list of keywords

Template

Submissions must follow the ACM guidelines and template available here: ACM_SigConf.docx

In addition to author keywords, authors must provide a classification for their papers using ACM Computing Classification System (CCS). The classification system is available at http://dl.acm.org/ccs/ccs.cfm. You should examine the CCS thoroughly, but we recommend looking particularly inside the following categories:

  • Information systems -> Information systems applications
  • Information systems -> Multimedia information systems
  • Human-centered computing
  • Applied computing -> Arts and humanities

Technical questions regarding the template can be directed at acmtexsupport@aptaracorp.com

Photos, color pictures or graphics must be inserted only in two pages (full paper) or one page (short paper, artefact/installation proposals).


Proceedings

Authors of selected papers presented in the conference (including essays describing the best art installations) will be published primarily in the ARTeFACTo Journal (ISSN: 2184-2086) and also invited to submit extended versions to selected journals.

The Submission of a paper or art installation implies the intention of at least one of the authors to register and attend to the conference in order to perform a spoken presentation. Papers that are accepted and presented at the conference by one of the authors will appear in the conference proceedings. The final version of accepted papers should be submitted with the name of the authors and institutions (there’s no need for a further blind review).
