About Art Machines 2

Art Machines 2: International Symposium on Machine Learning and Art 2021 will take place between 10th-13th June 2021. "Art Machines 2," will bring together Academics, Artists, and Professionals in the field of Computational Media Art in a four-day symposium on the topic of Machine Learning and Art. 
After the success of "Art Machines" in 2019, this much-anticipated follow-up symposium will provide the opportunity for in depth assessment of the impact of artificial intelligence on the making of computational art and media, and an exploration of the conditions of existence, range and futures of computationally based art and media. Media art does not exist in a vacuum and a critical concern of the conference will be both to understand and practice ways in which media art can intervene, both critically and constructively, in the ongoing construction of social reality by machine learning algorithms. The conference will comprise academic key notes, plenary panel presentations and discussions, scholarly and art practice paper presentations, an art exhibition and student-led workshops. 

Due to the persistence of the global COVID-19 pandemic, the Art Machines 2 Organizing Committee has decided to conduct the conference in a HYBRID FORMAT that will combine a live in-person conference at the School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong with virtual online access for international participants who are unable to attend. Keynotes sessions will be streamed live via Zoom and School of Creative Media YouTube channel, while all the other sessions of the conference will be accessible via zoom for registered participants both to attend and participate in.  We plan to conduct sessions in an afternoon and evening format, which will make the conference more accessible to our friends in Europe and Asian time zones.

For more details about presenting papers/abstracts in-person/virtually, please refer to Submission Types page. 


We are happy to announce commencement of registration for the conference Art Machines 2: International Symposium on Machine Learning and Art

Given the uncertainties this year due to COVID 19, which are predicated to continue into the summer months, we are running a hybrid conference that far flung members of this community can take part in without worrying about travel and personal safety. Virtual participants can participate in pre-recorded paper presentations, live Q&A sessions and engage virtually with industry professionals from the safety of their home or office, while in-person attendees can expect the same exciting benefits they have enjoyed at our first conference in 2019. Whether you are based in Hong Kong or living overseas, we hope that you will join our Art Machines 2 conference that will include keynote addresses and plenary forums, scholarly, artistic, and technical presentations, an art exhibition, conference salon and other networking functions.

We are pleased to offer our lowest standard rates ever at just HK$1,000 per person! Registration (Standard rate) is open until 13th June 2021, 23:59 HKT.
