*International Workshop on Movement and Computing (MOCO'16)*

July 5-6 2016, Thessaloniki, Greece

MINES ParisTech, France
Paris 8 University, France
University of Macedonia, Greece
Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece


Following on from the two previous successes of the International Workshop
on Movement and Computing (MOCO’14) at IRCAM (Paris, France) in 2014, as
well as MOCO’15 at Simon Fraser University (Vancouver, Canada) in 2015, we
are pleased to announce MOCO'16, which will be hosted in Thessaloniki,
Greece. MOCO'16 will be organized by MINES ParisTech, (France) in
co-operation with the Paris 8 University (France), the University of
Macedonia, Thessaloniki (Greece) and Aristotle University of Thessaloniki

The vision of MOCO'16 is to bring together academics, researchers,
engineers, designers, technologists, technocrats, creative artists,
anthropologists, museologists, ergonomists and other practitioners
interested in the phenomenon of the symbiosis between the human and the
creative process, e.g. dancer-digital medias, musician-instrument,
craftsman-object etc. This symbiosis takes the form of an interactional and
gravitational relationship, where the human element is both a trigger and a
transmitter, connecting perception (mind/environment interaction and
cognition), knowledge (theoretical understanding of a process) and gesture
(semantic motor skills).
MOCO'16 invites researchers that have experiences of capturing the combined
key elements of perception, knowledge and gesture/movement. MOCO'16 will be
of interest to artists who work on the elucidation of the intersection
between art, meaning cognition and technology by unlocking the hidden
components in human creativity. The workshop also provides a forum for
industrial partners, for whom the movement and gestures of the
workers/operators consist of key elements in terms of ergonomics and
health, to see and present state-of-the-art technologies.

A key feature of the MOCO'16 Workshop will be to open some of its
demonstrations and artistic activities to the public-at-large in order to
provide this extended audience with the opportunity to be informed about
current scientific issues and topics by experts in an informal setting.

*​​Suggested Topics*

* Movement in Digital and Performing Arts, which focus on the use and
interaction between arts and movement in the following domains: music,
dance, song, graffiti, painting etc..
* Technical and Craftsmanship Gestures, highlighting the importance of
gestures in the professional context, whether technical or cultural.
* Interaction, Communication and Design of User Experience, which put the
emphasis on gestures and movement as interfaces between humans and machines.
* Analysis and Modelling, centred on the use of mathematical, statistical
or methodological tools for a better understanding of gestures and movement.

These topics overlap and are in no way exhaustive, so we also welcome
contributions focusing on other areas, with titles which might include any
of the following keywords:
* Finger-based interaction
* Embodied and whole body interaction design
* Professional movement and gesture
* Movement analysis and analytics
* Movement expression in avatar, artificial agents, virtual humans or robots
* Sonification and visualization of movement and gesture
* Modeling movement, gesture and expressivity
* Sensori-motor learning with audio-visual feedback
* Motion-driven narrative
* Dance and technology
* Movement representation
* Embodiment and embodied cognition
* Mediated choreography
* Mechatronics and creative robotics
* Movement in affective computing
* Music and movement
* Somatic practice and design
* Dance and neuroscience
* Vocal tract movements in singing voice
* Design for movement in digital art
* Movement computation in ergonomics, sports, and health

*​​Participation in the workshop*
The workshop is an opportunity to present a research or study or details of
collaborative work. Participants will have the opportunity to offer a
presentation of the results of their research on one of the themes of the
workshop and to interact with their scientific/ artistic peers, in a
friendly and constructive environment.
If you are interested in offering an oral presentation of your work, please
submit a paper and/or a demo and/or a poster.

The submission categories are:
* Long paper with oral presentation (8 pages maximum)
* Research note with oral presentation (4 pages maximum)
* Extended abstracts with poster presentation (2 pages maximum)
* Demonstration (one of the above papers (2 pages minimum + Demo proposal

All submissions should be in pdf format and should use the MOCO’16 template
– adapted from ACM SIGCHI template


It is possible for participating authors to submit a demonstration proposal
in addition to their regular paper submission by completing the Demo
proposal form and sending it along with their submission. Together with the
demo proposal form, authors have to provide a link to a video about their
work. The demo proposal form is mandatory for all demo submissions and must
include details about technical set-up and space requirements.

Online submission: All submissions must be made through the Open Conference
System (OCS)
All submissions must be anonymous and will be peer-reviewed. The MOCO
proceedings will be indexed and published in the ACM digital library.
