The Milano event will bring together leading researchers and practitioners from academia, arts and industry to present their innovative work and discuss all aspects and challenges in a stimulating environment. The event aims to foster trans-disciplinary alliances and co-operation between IT researchers, artists and industry members as well as to offer artists novel creative tools that expand the grammar of the traditional arts.
The main focus of this edition is working for the artists: presenting tools, systems, models, artworks/performances/shows, empirical studies that may enrich the possibilities for artists and creative people with working with new media technologies.

- Multimedia (Integration of different media, such as virtual reality systems, audio, performing arts, etc.)
- New Media Technologies (innovative systems/frameworks/tools for creating augmented artworks and performances, such as tracking sensors, wearable computers, animation techniques, etc.)
