THEME: ART/SCIENCE HYBRIDS We invite papers submissions on the topic of art/science hybrids for both a special issue of JPC, and a conference day at DAW 2013 in Singapore. The rise of new transdisciplinary practices in the late 20th and early 21st Centuries is striking. The gulf between art and science that has widened since the Enlightenment has now been challenged by a wide body of scholars, artists, designers and scientists. This special issue will explore the concerns of emergent transdisciplinary research that seeks to re-unite the arts and sciences. In addition to established connections between areas such as electronic music and computer science, we are interested in more novel collaborations and hybrids including, but not limited to:
1. Arts and biological sciences
2. Medicine, art and design
3. Music, art and psychology
4. Synesthesia research
5. Cybernetics, robotics and art/design
6. Architecture and Transmedia
7. Geography and the arts
Papers should concentrate on the process of collaboration between the different disciplines and provide forceful arguments for considering these new hybrids as new transdisciplinary areas of research. To support these claims applicants are encouraged to include multimedia elements, including still images, digital video and digital audio. Applicants may apply in one of two categories: 1. Submission to present a 20-30 minute paper presentation at DAW 2013 and a full paper in JPC 2. Submission of a full paper to JPC ONLY
