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.

Part of the re:MakingSenses community is working towards conceptualizing, criticizing, constructing meaning around sensory augmentation, part is directly designing and building devices to augment senses.


Such work typically requires time, interdisciplinary knowledge, and various forms of input. We encourage practitioners, students, and professors to present their work-in-progress in any of these directions. The session will help presenters to make their ideas clearer, elicit useful feedback on early-stage work, and enable collaborations on ongoing projects with attendees!

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: #03 open call submission


If accepted you will need to prepare an 8minute 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
