Below is a detailed explanation of this opportunity.

IDMAA 2011 Conference
Design, Innovation & Story – an Odyssey of Confluence
For this conference, IDMAA is seeking abstracts (500 words maximum) for presentation and/or discussion about ideas pushing the edge of digital media and art, particularly as they relate to the merging of design, innovation, and narrative. Creative research that demonstrates the confluence of different disciplines, media, cultures, and technology is particularly encouraged. The conference will contain several tracks of programming that expand on the theme in the following areas:

- Convergence-Trans/Inter/Meta/media (mobile, outdoor media, virtual worlds)
- High/Low tech, DIY/DIT
- Social Dynamic Range: Infra-Personal / Local / Ultra-Global
- Business / Academia confluence
- Learning (pedagogy, methods, topics)
- Entertainment (video, animation, games)
- Innovation/Creativity (art, design, music)
- Business (jobs, industries)

All abstracts will be refereed for acceptance and should report on the results of creative or research projects that explore innovative areas of new media (design, art, tools, education, etc.) and follow the formatting conventions found in the latest edition of the Chicago Manual of Style.
