CyPosium: call for proposals ends 15 June 2012

The call for proposals for papers to be presented at the online Cyberformance Symposium (CyPosium) closes on Friday 15 June.
The CyPosium seeks to  dis­cuss online per­for­mances with artists, researchers and inter­ested par­tic­i­pants. Ques­tions we would like to tackle include: What dif­fer­ent kinds of events hap­pened? What did they make pos­si­ble? What was spe­cial about the event? Why were things done in a cer­tain way and what were the results?
We invite proposals for presentations about past online performances.  Presentations will be programmed into 30 minute timeslots, should be no longer than 20 minutes in duration (10 minutes will be scheduled for questions) and can be done in the Upstage platform (or in another platform if you wish). Presentations could involve webcasting, showing archives, talks, etc. A public chat will be available for interaction between the artists and audience. There will be facilitated discussions between programmes of presentations, to enable general discussion around common themes. Everything will be recorded for archival and documentation purposes.

The CyPosium is organised and hosted by UpStage, the Waterwheel Tap and independent cyberformers. It will take place in a variety of online platforms and everyone is welcome to attend.
