Call for Papers for ‘Picteilín’ Creative Media conference at the Dundalk Institute of Technology, September 8th, 2011

The Deadline for Abstracts was Friday July 15th 2011. Submissions are now closed.

The digital media sector is one of the most dynamic sectors of a knowledge economy, with the creative origination that underpins the creative media industries affording much potential for experimentation. This conference aims to provide a platform for Irish and International academics, postgraduate students and practitioners to share knowledge and expand the boundaries of research that pivot on pixels.  Contributions are sought under the following themes:

  1. Creative Media Content Creation and Technologies

  4. New Media Narrative Forms

It is envisioned that there will be short and long academic research papers, practical exhibition installations, poster sessions, games and screenings.

We invite proposal abstracts to a maximum of 350 words, which may be accompanied by supporting visual material. There will be an award presented at the conference for the best submission.

Postgraduate students, academics and practitioners who are not presenting at the conference are also encouraged to attend this event.  To record your interest and to be included on the mailing list, please send your email address to: info@picteilin.com.
