Cosign 2004

Cosign 2004: Computational Semiotics, will be held at the University of Split, Croatia, September 14-16, 2004.

The creation and interpretation of meaning in interactive digital media requires the manipulation of signs and/or pre-existing structures of meaning. The focus of COSIGN is the way in which meaning can be created by, encoded in, understood by, or produced through, the computer. As such, it is of interest to computer scientists, digital artists and designers, HCI and AI practitioners, and a broad range of other critics, theorists and researchers.

The full call for participation is available here. The submission date for papers and artworks is April 29; the submission date for posters and demonstrations is May 24th. The programme and proceedings of the COSIGN 2001, COSIGN 2002 and COSIGN 2003 conferences are all available online.
