The 1st International Conference on Arts and Technology (ArtsIT2009) will be held in Yi-Lan, Taiwan, September 24th-25th, 2009. This conference is planned to be a place where people in arts, with a keen interest in modern IT technologies, meet with people in IT, having strong ties to arts in their works. The aim is to bring art to all people while offering the artists a creative tool to extend the grammar of the traditional arts.
With the evolution of intelligent devices, sensors and ambient intelligent/ubiquitous systems, it is not surprising to see many researches and arts projects starting to explore the design of intelligent artistic artefacts. Ambient intelligence supports the vision that technology will become invisible, embedded in our natural surroundings, present whenever we need it, attuned to all our senses, adaptive to users and context and autonomously acting. High quality arts or information should be potentially available to any user, anywhere, at any time, with any device. The information environments will be the major drivers of culture which will eventually lead to the future space (intelligent, interactive, invisible and informative) - Utopia kind of life.
