Call for Papers and Demos:
The ACM SIGPLAN International Workshop on Functional Art, Music, Modelling and Design (FARM) gathers together people who are harnessing functional techniques in the pursuit of
creativity and expression.
It is co-located with ICFP 2017, the 22nd ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on Functional Programming.
Functional Programming has emerged as a mainstream software development paradigm, and its artistic and creative use is booming. A growing number of software toolkits,
frameworks and environments for art, music and design now employ functional programming languages and techniques. FARM is a forum for exploration and critical evaluation of
these developments, for example to consider potential benefits of greater consistency, tersity, and closer mapping to a problem domain.
FARM encourages submissions from across art, craft and design, including textiles, visual art, music, 3D sculpture, animation, GUIs, video games, 3D printing and architectural
models, choreography, poetry, and even VLSI layouts, GPU configurations, or mechanical engineering designs. Theoretical foundations, language design, implementation issues,
and applications in industry or the arts are all within the scope of the workshop. The language used need not be purely functional (“mostly functional” is fine), and may be
manifested as a domain specific language or tool. Moreover, submissions focusing on questions or issues about the use of functional programming are within the scope.
FARM 2017 website : http://functional-art.org/2017/
We welcome submissions from academic, professional, and independent programmers and artists.
Submissions are invited in three categories:
1) Original papers
We solicit original papers in the following categories:
- Original research
- Overview / state of the art
- Technology tutorial
All submissions must propose an original contribution to the FARM theme. FARM is an interdisciplinary conference, so a wide range of approaches are encouraged.
An original paper should have 5 to 12 pages, be in portable document format (PDF), using the ACM SIGPLAN style guidelines and use the ACM SIGPLAN template. [
Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library as part of the FARM 2017 proceedings. See http://authors.acm.org/main.cfm for information on the options available
to authors. Authors are encouraged to submit auxiliary material for publication along with their paper (source code, data, videos, images, etc.); authors retain all rights to
the auxiliary material.
2) Demo proposals
Demo proposals should describe a demonstration to be given at the FARM workshop and its context, connecting it with the themes of FARM. A demo could be in the form of a short
(10-20 minute) tutorial, presentation of work-in-progress, an exhibition of some work, or even a performance. Demo proposals should be in plain text, HTML or Markdown format,
and not exceed 2000 words. A demo proposal should be clearly marked as such, by prepending Demo Proposal: to the title.
Demo proposals will be published on the FARM website. A summary of the demo performances will also be published as part of the conference proceedings, to be prepared by the
3) Calls for collaboration
Calls for collaboration should describe a need for technology or expertise related to the FARM theme. Examples may include but are not restricted to:
- art projects in need of realization
- existing software or hardware that may benefit from functional programming
- unfinished projects in need of inspiration
Calls for collaboration should be in plain text, HTML or Markdown format, and not exceed 5000 words. A call for collaboration should be clearly marked as such, by prepending
Call for Collaboration: to the title.
Calls for collaboration will be published on the FARM website.
Submission is via EasyChair
Authors take note
The official publication date is the date the proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library. This date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of your
conference. The official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work.
If you have any questions about what type of contributions that might be suitable, or anything else regarding submission or the workshop itself, please contact the organisers
All presentations at FARM 2017 will be recorded. Permission to publish the resulting video (in all probability on YouTube, along with the videos of ICFP itself and the other
ICFP-colocated events) will be requested on-site.
The mini festival Gjenlyd will take place on April 30th from 14-19h at Bergen University College. EARLY BIRD tickets before March 15!
For the one-day mini-festival GJENLYD, the contemporary music scene in Bergen will be celebrating local hero Morten Eide Pedersen, new music pioneer Pierre Boulez and compositional contortionist Ruben Sverre Gjertsen – whose music is famously impossible to play.
Morning sessions: 10:00-12:00
Afternoon sessions: 15:00-17:00
Throughout Borealis, composer and live coder Thor Magnusson and writer Bergsveinn Birgisson will be holding a workshop on writing and sound at Lydgalleriet.
To participate in the workshop, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Application deadline February 28th!
The residency supports an international artist’s moving image project with a three month long scholarship, travels, accommodation, project funding and resources, regional and national networks. The residency can be adapted after the artist’s wishes and needs, and include meetings with artists based in Sweden, filmmakers, and industry, as well as access to studios and technology at the forefront.
The residency is a collaboration between Borås Museum of Modern Art, Kultur i Väst, Region Västra Götaland and Iaspis, the Swedish Art Grants Committee’s international programme for visual- and applied artists. Our ambition is to facilitate the work of an international visual artist with a moving images production. The residency administration aim to create a production network that spans over the region’s art scene as well as the region’s film production facilities.
Deadline January 22 2017.
In September 2017 the 16th edition of ANTI – Contemporary Art Festival will partner with a number of local partners to produce a programme of projects that respond to the theme of water. We invite proposals from artists working in any medium, however…
ANTI is one of BEK’s key partners in the international collaboration Future DiverCities, where artistic connection builds a creative union.
