xCoAx 2018

DEADLINE : 31st January, 2018

xCoAx 6th Conference on Computation, Communication, Aesthetics and X 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. xCoAx, taking place in Madrid in July 2018, has a call for papers, artworks and performances to contribute to the conference programme.

xCoAx has been an occasion for international audiences to meet and exchange ideas, in search of interdisciplinary synergies among computer scientists, artists, media practitioners, and theoreticians at the threshold of digital arts and culture.
