Media, Arts & Design | AI 2020 Conference

Invitation & Call for Abstracts

The Media, Arts & Design | AI 2020 conference is organised by the Center for Applied Game Studies @ Donau-Universität Krems, the Department of Artificial Intelligence @ University of Malta and the Department of Digital Media @ Drexel University. The conference is further supported by the MIT Education Arcade @ Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the LIVE LAB @ Texas A&M University and the Department of Communication Studies @ University of Vaasa.

Media, arts, design and artificial intelligence have always had a great influence on each other. For example, it is the great science fiction novels and films such as "2001: A Space Odyssey" that have shaped the perception of artificial intelligence for generations. On the other hand, it is now AI-supported media productions that allow us to dive into our film and game worlds and turn them into the great experiences we enjoy as consumers.

The Media, Arts & Design | AI 2020 conference is now to become a sister conference to the Media, Arts & Design | blockchain series. The declared goal is to connect the art and cultural communities with the technical scene.

The conference takes place June 19th, 2020, 13:00 - 22:00 (CEST / UTC+2) via ZOOM (the link will be sent to all registered participants on June 18th.)

Call submission deadline: June 6th, 2020
Registration deadline for all participants: June 17th, 2020
