Special Session on “Augmented and Participatory Performance”

This special session welcomes regular papers describing novel systems exploiting digital information and communication technologies to enable the creative participation of audiences in live performing arts (e.g. music, dance, theatre) and/or to augment performance practice and reception in contrast to traditional forms. We encourage authors to discuss design process and interaction models, software/hardware architecture as well as artistic intent, whenever relevant. We also suggest to discuss the impact such systems have on audience/performer engagement and experience in light of results from evaluations or observations. The focus will be put on studies involving fields such as music informatics, human computer interaction, mobile and physical computing, internet of things, virtual reality, affective computing, semantic web, and sound design. In addition to original research papers, the session welcomes review, position and ethnography papers on this theme.

For submission information, please check the Important Dates and Authors’ instructions & submission sections of the website.

Organiser: Mathieu Barthet (Queen Mary University of London)
