We will publish an open call for each session, which will be based around a chosen topic on Sensory Augmentation. We encourage submissions from all fields, professionals and students, in order to provoke insightful discussions from a diverse community. We are not necessarily looking for fully developed, polished pieces - although those are also welcome - we are open to receiving works in progress that can benefit the most from intense discussion and feedback by a multidisciplinary group.
Each session will include 4 short presentations from diverse perspectives, with ample time for discussion and the exchange of ideas for the remainder of the session.

THE BODY IN SENSORY AUGMENTATION
date of event
24th March 17:30-18:30 CET
successful authors notified: 3rd March
SESSION #04 BRIEF
We cannot think of sensory augmentation without thinking about the body: the body allows, constrains, and maybe evolves together with sensory augmentation. Understanding the complexities of the link between the body and sensory augmentation is crucial from both a practical and theoretical perspective. Exploring the role of the body in sensory augmentation opens up a range of theoretical and practical concerns related to embodiment and the way we relate to the world.
In this session, we welcome presentations related to the link between body and sensory augmentation, tackling issues related to embodiment, experience, identity. Perspectives from arts, design, cognitive science, biomedical engineering, neurophysics, philosophy and other disciplines will be discussed.
We will invite 4 proposals per session, to fill 8-minute presentation slots. Please email us the ABSTRACT (300words) for your proposed presentation, your SPEAKER BIO (100words), and any images (optional) that illustrate your idea/research.
Please make email subject: #04 open call submission
If accepted you will need to prepare an 8-minute visual presentation (not required at this stage). We acknowledge the limitations of familiar modes of presentations and seek to give space to the richness of creative practice around sensory augmentation. Therefore, we are open to receiving proposals for novel and experimental modes of showcasing your work.
Submissions will be reviewed by the panel and successful submissions will be notified prior to the session.
As we will cover a wide range of topics, submissions may be held for future sessions, in which case authors will be contacted in advance to confirm participation.
Please send submissions to email@example.com
