emerging technologies


Though most submission requirements and procedures are the same as last year, there are a few noteworthy changes:

No DVD Submissions

Last year, Emerging Technologies accepted DVD submissions for jury review. This year, we will only accept uploaded .mov and .mpeg movies, and VHS video and CD-ROMs with .mov or .mpeg via postal or courier service.

Interactive Art Submissions

Emerging Technologies and the Art Gallery are closely coordinating interactive submissions that indicate a strong art focus. If you have an emerging technology project with a strong art focus, please submit to Emerging Technologies and describe the art focus within your proposal. The Art Gallery and Emerging Technologies will share space at the Los Angeles Convention Center. We are hoping to make optimum use of the Access Grid for distributed performances by invited artists.

Real-Time Submissions

We are encouraging and accepting real-time submissions for both Emerging Technologies and the Computer Animation Festival. If your real-time animation playback requires hands-on or senses-on interaction, we suggest you submit through Emerging Technologies. If you can package your animation as a pre-recorded short film, the Computer Animation Festival is probably your best choice.

High-Resolution Displays and Animation Content

Emerging Technologies is investigating new ultra-high-resolution displays and coordinating these efforts with the Computer Animation Festival. We hope to show high-resolution digital scientific visualizations and other content on emerging displays and may be calling for animation submissions at 4K. Please check this page and the Submission Precedure Checklist periodically to see what we have in store and for details on submitting material.

Access Grid and Performance

Through a joint effort between Emerging Technologies and the Art Gallery, we are investigating the emerging Access Grid as a potential performance and collaboration space. Given the special requirements for Access Grid, we reserve the right to curate performances and collaborations. Please check this page periodically to see what we have in store and for more details on submitting material.

Please carefully read the Submission Precedure Checklist for detailed submission information and the Frequently Asked Questions for answers to common submission questions.
