ECCS'10 Satellite Meeting
[ENTRE]* Artistic and Scientific Research: meeting points and bridging lines
* in Portuguese, “entre” means both “in between” and “come in”
Artistic research and scientific research, with its dissimilarities and kinships, relate to each other, nowadays, with a distance that seems to be resulting more out of a lack of opportunities to share and collaborate, than of a mistrustful holding-back into what are, normally, different epistemological and methodological fields of work. Despite of these differences, both kinds of research strive to explore new territories and perspectives, and generate new ideas and understandings.
It has been becoming clear that the knowledge some artists convey through the exploration of conceptual and methodological models in their working processes is a strong alternative to more institutionalized knowledge production schema. Live arts in particular, as long as the presence and action of the subject are the locus of its aesthetical exploration, permit embodied experiences of research and, therefore, the formulation of an embodied knowledge that makes no distinction between an interior subjectivity that looks at an exterior alterity.
On the other hand, non-dualistic scientific traditions that demand for the researcher the same embodied formulation of knowledge have been replacing old modes of knowledge production in which the subject was concerned with something exterior to him/her without taking into account his/her own experience of it. This shift obliges scientific research to have methodological concerns that live artists, when taking a research stance in regard to their working processes, are quite familiar with.
With this meeting we aim to contribute to bringing arts and sciences closer without falling into the stereotyped collaborations where artists and scientists, instead of fuse and contaminate, merely illustrate and ornament each other’s activities. We want to contribute to the understanding of how research in contemporary arts, namely the ones coming from live arts in the fields of improvisation and real time composition, can influence the reasoning around and about questions that are common and transversal to science and arts, such as embodiment, representation, perception, decision-making, emergence, self-organization and creativity.
For the ECCS'10 Satellite Meeting we will prepare a series of lectures around the selected papers and around keynote speakers' contributions. After each lecture a discussion panel will be organized.

We invite everyone to submit full papers for the conference. We expect papers that contribute to the understanding of how research in contemporary arts can influence the reasoning around and about questions that are common and transversal to science and arts. And also papers that reflect on how scientific research influences artistic practices and discourses. The Organizing Committee (the names will be posted soon) will evaluate and select the papers to be presented. Publications are being organised. Please send the papers to the contacts listed below.
The Satellite Meeting accepts the document format templates proposed by Springer-Verlag for the "Lecture Notes in Computer Science" series. Please use the following template when preparing your paper: Template for Office 2007 Word
* Short papers should have 6 pages maximum, long papers should have no more than 12 pages.
* Papers must be submitted in Word form.
* Deadline for submission is 30/4.
