2nd Call for X
xCoAx 2016: 4th International Conference on Computation, Communication, Aesthetics and X (July 2016, Bergamo)

Dates: 7-8 July 2016
Location: Bergamo, Italy
Website: http://xcoax.org/ <http://www.xcoax.org/>
Deadline for submissions: 31 January 2016  

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.

Since 2013, 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 frontiers of digital arts and culture.

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

In 2016 xCoAx will go back to where it started: the S.Agostino campus of the University of Bergamo, a familiar place made fresh by exquisitely renovated premises where we look forward to hosting you and your work.

The xCoAx Organising Committee is very proud to announce that the keynote speaker will be Computer Art pioneer Frieder Nake, with a talk titled “The Disappearing Masterpiece”.
