Second Call for Abstracts for MutaMorphosis

A Leonardo 40th Anniversary celebration

Deadline to submit abstracts: 31 January 2007.

MutaMorphosis: Challenging Arts and Sciences
8-10 November 2007, Prague, Czech Republic

The international conference will concentrate on the growing interest -- within the worlds of the arts, sciences and technologies -- in EXTREME AND HOSTILE ENVIRONMENTS. These environments appear as symptomatic indicators of the mutations that are taking place. They are potential vectors that make possible an awareness of the different problems at the origin of the disturbances that threaten the ensemble of the Earth's eco-systems.

We invite practitioners in the arts, sciences, engineering and humanities to submit abstracts that explore the limits and extremes within the following streams of interest:

How do the arts and sciences deal with new ideas about strategies of life in extreme conditions?

How do the arts and sciences face radical scales and extreme environments?

How do the arts and sciences address evolving ideas about cognition in extreme environments?

500-word abstracts required by 31 January 2007 via email to mutamorphosis@ciant.cz

All submitted abstracts will be peer reviewed by the members of International Advisory Committee including Marc Battier, Nina Czegeldy, Michele Emmer, Machiko Kusahara, Lubica Lacinova, Michael Punt, Sonya Rapoport, Nicolas Reeves and others.

Submissions accepted and presented at the conference will be published in the conference proceedings. The conference is organised by CIANT as part of the ENTER festival in the framework of the Leonardo 40th anniversary celebrations. The festival will feature also the first retrospective exhibition of Frank J. Malina.

Conference Honorary Panel includes: Rudolf Arnheim, Ivan M. Havel, Jasia Reichardt, Itsuo Sakane, Sonia Sheridan

Join us in Prague 8-10 November 2007.
