CALL FOR PARTICIPATION (Abstracts due October 1st)

Motion Design is about action, energy, light, and movement intertwined with message and meaning. It includes the push and pull of forces, whether they are recorded with a video camera or objects created on the screen with complex software. Gravity, speed and velocity, simulate elements in an interplay of movement. Interfaces, interactive systems, narratives and messaging all incorporate exchanges of dynamic and well planned interplay.

Motion Design is a shifting and evolving sphere—it encompasses a broad range of related fields: human computer interaction, design, journalism, film, television, dance and theater. Our central theme for 2019 is (inter)play, the way in which two or more things have an effect on each other. 

SUBMISSION CATEGORIES INCLUDE: Long Papers, Short Papers, and Workshop Sessions.

Workshop Sessions

Workshop sessions act as an extension of the conference experience, allowing attendees to be participants. They give presenters an opportunity to interact with attendees over the course of 90 minutes. Workshops can be hands on, discussion based and/or process driven. We invite workshop proposals that will engage participants in motion design, motion design education, or a related field of study.

Workshop proposals must include:

  • an abstract
