In recent years a growing number of researchers working in artificial intelligence, cognitive science, computer graphics, computer music, and multimedia have begun to explicitly address issues of 'style' or connotative semantics in their work. However, due to the widely varying technical requirements of work in different media, little communication has traditionally existed between different 'style researchers'. The goal of this symposium is to bring such individuals together, to seek out common languages and frameworks for discussion, as well as to establish a shared set of stylistic tasks, which can be used as a testbed for extending and generalizing stylistic work.
We encourage submissions from researchers working in all media. Particularly, in addition to academic researchers, we are interested in presentations or demonstrations by practitioners and artists using computational methods in their own work.
Submission guidelines: Potential participants are invited to submit papers, and/or posters, demonstrations, performances, exhibitions and roundtable discussion proposals on computational aspects of style modeling and related research, before May 3, 2004. Papers should not exceed 8 pages in length and should be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. People who want to be included on the invitation list should submit a short statement of their relevant research.
