artsit.org/show/home

ArtsIT is meant to be a place where people in arts, with a keen interest in modern IT technologies, meet with people in IT, having strong ties to arts in their works. Now in its third edition, ArtsIT has become a leading scientific forum for dissemination of cutting-edge research results in the area of Arts, Design & Technology.

The Milano event will bring together leading researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to present their innovative work and discuss all aspects and challenges in a stimulating environment. The event aims to foster trans-disciplinary alliances and co-operation between IT researchers, artists and industry members as well as to offer artists novel creative tools that expand the grammar of the traditional arts.

The conference represents a valuable opportunity for researchers, artists and industry members both to showcase new, cutting-edge ideas that will shape the future of art and technology, and to gain insights into the innovative techniques and trans-disciplinary activities that are making strong impacts both on the world of the arts and on society at large.

LNICST volumes are submitted for inclusion to leading indexing services, including DBLP, Google Scholar, ACM Digital Library, ISI Proceedings, EI Engineering Index, CrossRef, Scopus.

Selected papers will appear in the International Journal of Arts & Technology (Inderscience).

Authors with accepted special contributions will be asked to submit an extended version of their paper. A typical length for a long paper is between 20 and 30 pages.
