NowNet Arts Conference is an annual event for artists, technologists, researchers, educators, and industry professionals advancing topics in contemporary network arts for the ongoing development of the field. The 2019 theme "Social Purpose in Contemporary Network Arts" is a prominent motivation and capacity of this work. The ability to transcend geographic distance through performance and technology has inspired new forms of social connection and impact. As an artistic medium, contemporary network arts is a social purpose. It has also served as a vehicle for community projects on themes such as peace building, the environment, and diversity. Technologists in the field have incorporated social topics including access, green technology, and international network development. The NowNet Arts Conference 2019 "Social Purpose in Contemporary Network Arts" is a program of papers, workshops, presentations, and concert demonstrations that feature this topic and generate new innovations for this work forward.
The primary site IACS provides a hub for the conference with a 100Gbps Internet2 network. Softwares and hardwares for network arts will be utilized including JackTrip, LOLA, UltraGrid, Zoom, and others. Attendees and presenters can participate in-person at IACS Stony Brook University, CCRMA Stanford University, Technical University Berlin, Edinburgh Napier University, or online from a remote site via Zoom and Livestream.
