The 4th International Workshop on movement and computing, gathering together academics and practitioners.
Wednesday 28 - Friday 30 June 2017
Goldsmiths, University of London
MOCO is positioned within emerging interdisciplinary domains between art & science. It aims to gather academics and practitioners interested in the computational study, modelling, representation, segmentation, recognition, classification, or generation of movement information.
The workshop references the challenge of representing embodied movement knowledge within computational models, yet it also celebrates the inherent expression available within movement as a language.
While human movement itself focuses on bodily experience, developing computational models for movement requires abstraction and representation of lived embodied cognition. Selecting appropriate models between movement and its rich personal and cultural meanings remains a challenge in movement interaction research.
Many fields, including Interaction Design, HCI, Education and Machine Learning have been inspired by recent developments within Neuroscience validating the primacy of movement in cognitive development and human intelligence. This has spawned a growing interest in experiential principles of movement awareness and mindfulness, while simultaneously fueling the need for developing computational models that can describe movement intelligence with greater rigour.
This conference seeks to explore an equal and richly nuanced epistemological partnership between movement experience and movement cognition and computational representation.
