Super Human Revolution of the Species is an international event comprising a symposium, exhibition, masterclass and public talk investigating collaborative art and science practices and their relationship with the human body.

Symposium abstracts are invited from either individual or team-based researchers, artists and scientists. Submitted abstracts will undergo a double-blind referee process, with successful applicants invited to submit their paper prior to final acceptance.

Taking place in Melbourne on 22 - 25 November 2009, the Super Human symposium will present an invigorating and inspiring mix of keynote speakers and collaborative research projects engaging with one or more of the symposium themes: Augmentation, Cognition and Nanoscale Interventions.

Questions that the symposium will address include, but are not limited to: How do scientific and artistic bodies of knowledge intersect with human, social bodies? Does art serve simply as a representational tool for the sciences or is there more to the picture than that? Does research into bodies and their systems offer an insight into aesthetics, or is it confined to the purely functional?

Please submit all abstracts (and any questions) to the Conference Convenor: [email protected].
Deadline IS 30 MARCH 2009
