7th Conference on Computation, Communication, Aesthetics & X
xCoAx is an exploration of the intersection where computational tools and media meet art and culture, in the form of a multi-disciplinary enquiry on aesthetics, computation, communication and the elusive X factor that connects them all.
xCoAx has been an occasion for international audiences to meet and exchange ideas, in search of interdisciplinary synergies among computer scientists, artists, media practitioners, and theoreticians at the threshold of digital arts and culture. Previous editions of xCoAx took place in:
- Madrid in 2018
- Lisbon in 2017
- Bergamo in 2016
- Glasgow in 2015
- Porto in 2014
- Bergamo in 2013
The proceedings of xCoAx are archived at proceedings.xcoax.org.
The focus of xCoAx is on the unpredictable overlaps between the chaos and freedom of creativity and the rules and determinism of algorithms, between human nature and machine technology, with the aim to evolve towards new directions in aesthetics.
In 2019 xCoAx will take place in Milan, in and around Politecnico di Milano, in the Città Studi/Lambrate area.
