LIVE INTERFACES: Performance, Art, Music
The International Conference for Live Interfaces (ICLI) is a conference on live, technology-mediated interaction in performance. The conference seeks to investigate cross-disciplinary understandings of performance technology with a particular focus on issues related to the notion of liveness in interaction. It was made possible through funds and support from Vitae Yorkshire, the University of Leeds and the Arts and Humanities Research Council
The first edition of the conference was held by ICSRiM over two days, 7-8th September 2012, and hosted 80 delegates, including those travelling from 11 countries outside Great Britain.
The conference consisted of peer reviewed work, including papers addressing the theme of interactive performance technology, and performances exploring the theme through practice. The quality of submissions were very high, and formed an exciting, challenging programme. Researchers, theorists and artists from diverse fields participated, contributing perspectives from a cross disciplinary field, including digital performance, live art, computer music, choreography, music psychology, interaction design, human computer interaction, digital aesthetics, computer vision, smart materials and augmented stage technology.
The planning team consisted of early career researchers and research students from across Yorkshire and Humber, namely the Universities of Leeds, Hull, Lincoln, Huddersfield, Sheffield and York St John.
Papers from the conference are available for download, with a follow-on publication based on selected conference papers agreed with Leonardo Transactions.
