Extension of Deadline for Abstract Submissions


Due to numerous requests for an extension for submissions to the Poetics of the Algorithm conference, the organizing committee decided to extend the deadline for the submission of abstracts until January 11, 2016.

We invite you to send proposals for workshops, roundtables, panels, performances, sessions, and paper presentations touching on aspects of the original Call for Papers. 

The process of evaluation is ongoing, and you can expect notification of acceptance by the end of February 2016.

Very much looking forward to receiving your proposals and meeting you in Liège!

Best wishes,
