We are now calling for submissions for Art Machines 2: International Symposium on Machine Learning and Art 2021, which will take place between 10th–13th June 2021 at the School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong. "Art Machines 2," will bring together Academics, Artists, and Professionals in the field of Computational Media Art in a four-day symposium on the topic of Machine Learning and Art.

After the success of "Art Machines" in 2019, this much-anticipated follow-up symposium will provide the opportunity for in depth assessment of the impact of artificial intelligence on the making of computational art and media, and an exploration of the conditions of existence, range and futures of computationally based art and media. Media art does not exist in a vacuum and critical concern of the conference will be both to understand and practice ways in which media art can intervene, both critically and constructively, in the ongoing construction of social reality by machine learning algorithms. The conference will comprise academic key notes, plenary panel presentations and discussions, scholarly and art practice paper presentations, an art exhibition and student-led workshops.
