  9. Motion Design Education Summit: MODE 2021 (re)connect 10 - 13 June 2021 DESCRIPTION Motion design is an ever-evolving discipline, spanning design and the arts. Live video streaming, gaming, and virtual environments have enabled us to connect with others during times of isolation and physical distancing. Our social interfaces, conferencing apps, and digital collaboration tools enable dynamic and interconnected exchanges across space, time, and continents. Motion encompasses every digital touchpoint on our devices, providing feedback and shaping understanding across complex ecosystems for human-computer interaction. It is a vital part of the interconnectedness of the human experience, but now more than ever before. Our central theme for 2021 is (re)connect and examines the impact of motion design and motion literacy in current contexts, and explores future notions. Motion design and motion-based technologies have played a monumental role as part of a universal pandemic shift. We’ll have some stories to tell. The 2021 conference will be virtual, but together we will explore three focus tracks: research, pedagogy and practice that seek to help us (re)connect. Particular interest includes papers and workshops that explore topics in diversity, equity, inclusion, accessibility, sustainability, social/political issues and responsible design practices. Motion outputs may include augmented reality, virtual reality, narrative, immersive and experience design, interface, gaming, tools and new types of motion design making. Discoveries involving remote teaching and learning that integrate motion as part of curriculum and pedagogy are also of interest. All submissions should have a strong relationship to motion design in order to be accepted to the conference and included in the 2021 proceedings.

  14. CAA 2021 CFP // Digital Resistance: Emerging Technologies as Tools for Design Activism College Art Association (CAA) Annual Conference February 10-13, 2021 SESSION TITLE Digital Resistance: Emerging Technologies as Tools for Design Activism DESCRIPTION Emerging technologies, including augmented reality, virtual reality, machine learning, and the internet of things, are quickly expanding as vehicles for design that bridge digital technology with physical experiences. Their value is regularly exploited for commercial purposes, in which digital processes are utilized to enhance the physical consumer experience and amplify brand loyalty. However, such powerful tools for design hold potential for social impact as well. Immersive digital experiences are utilized as tools for social innovation, community organizing, empathy, visualizing a more equitable world, or inserting marginalized people into spaces from which they have traditionally been excluded or erased. This panel explores the possibilities of emerging technologies for resistance, activism, and social design. Today, designers, artists, and activists leverage the power of emerging technologies by bridging digital forms of resistance with lived experiences of oppression. What opportunities might digital experiences, embedded within social and physical spaces, provide for addressing lived experiences of injustice, inequity, and oppression? How are traditional methods for social design being applied and expanded in digital spaces? What are the ethical considerations and potential for harm that these new technologies present? As designers and artists continue to explore new digital tools and processes, they are also increasingly expected to be held accountable for the social, political and environmental impact of their interventions. By capitalizing on the affordances of emerging technologies, they can design outcomes that address issues of systemic inequity and oppression to bridge gaps not only in our individual experiences but also in our shared humanity. SUBMISSION GUIDELINES https://caa.confex.com/caa/2021/webprogrampreliminary/meeting.html DEADLINE Sept. 16, 2020 Please send proposals directly to session chairs. CHAIRS Ali Place, University of Arkansas - aplace@uark.edu Kathy Mueller, Temple University - kmueller@temple.edu
