There is a significant and growing interest in mathematical or algorithmic art. This is in part due to advancement in computer technology, higher mathematics, sophisticated algorithms, and the community of mathematically- or computationally-minded contributors whose works demonstrate the beauty and potential of mathematics in manifestation of algorithmic art.
This DIMACS workshop will be a three-day exploration focusing on some special cases of what may be characterized as algorithmic mathematical art and its applications. We wish to promote potential fusion between mathematics, computer science, art and visualization, leading to measurable consequences for various practitioners in mathematics, art, education, and sciences. Topics include mathematically-rooted, algorithmically-conducted approaches to computer graphics, visualization, painting, sculpturing, drawing, and other visual arts.
The workshop will include invited and contributed talks as well as hands-on activities. In particular, the participants will be introduced to Polynomiography and its software at a computer lab. There will be an informal exhibit area for display of artwork of the participants. We encourage participation of mathematicians, scientists, artist, and educators. To contribute a talk, please submit a 1-2 page abstract (pdf format is preferred) to Bahman Kalantari (email@example.com) for refereed evaluation by March 15, 2009. Contributors will be notified of acceptance decisions by mid April. The possibility of a refereed proceedings exists and a decision will be announced at a later time.
