Arizona State University [ASU] will host the 2019 the 6th International Conference on Movement and Computing [MOCO] which is to be held in Tempe, Arizona.

The MOCO 2019 theme will be Movement Imaginaries. Paper presentations, panels, performances, demos, workshops on all MOCO-related topics are welcome. MOCO is an interdisciplinary conference that explores the use of computational technology to support and understand human movement practice, as well as movement as a means of interacting with computers.

Conference Location

ASU is a massive Research One university, giving the conference access to a great diversity of programs, practices, and scholars working here. MOCO at ASU presents a unique opportunity to build upon existing fields of interests and forge new avenues for research and knowledge creation that resonate across the arts and sciences and branch into health, philosophy, education and other application areas that include both computational techniques and human movement. The range of interdisciplinary labs and centers and the beautiful October weather make this an ideal locale for the conference. ASU is located about fifteen minutes from the Phoenix Airport.
