In every country in the world medium-sized cities out number capital cities in both quantity and gross population. They are however, historically overlooked. In a digital and interconnected age these cities have the potential to by-pass capitals and challenge the hegemony of central economic and political organisations. They can form networks vastly more complex, intricate and numerous than the now standard group of connected ‘global cities’; can become self-sustained economically and culturally; and forge forward with new ideas in their specialist fields.

In this context, the present conference focuses on how the medium sized cities from across the world are adapting to the economies, practices and infrastructures of the digital age; how the interaction and communication of the digital message is reframing life in these cities, whether new or old; and how the digitization of the urban arena is changing the reality of the representation of city life.

In short, it asks what are the implications of the digital times in which we live, on the civic, cultural, economic and urban forum of medium-sized city.

It welcomes the participation of architects, planners, activists, artists, technologists, animators, filmmakers, cultural studies experts, programmers, gamers and more.

Re-Designing Interactive Art
The extended use of digital technologies in physical, biological and artificial environments enables artists to design and implement new forms of Art. Scholars from all over the world will explore these extending possibilities during XARTS 2015 Summer School and Conferences taking place in Syros island from 9-19 of July. The Conference From Virtual to Real is part of this Summer School where researchers from all over the world will present their last findings in Extended Arts subjects.

This call for projects is intended to the artistic and scientific communities interested in Extended Arts.

The topics in XARTS 2015 International Conference include but are not confined to the following areas:

Production issues in re-implementation of existing works of Interactive Art
Interactive Art is volatile. After a festival or temporary exhibitions the work of art is deconstructed. We can only trace it via design drawings and audiovisual memories. It is often related to the exhibition context. We try to investigate in this session the production issues arising when the same interactive art concept is implemented in different contexts.

Artistic Practice
Re-Designing an interactive artwork from an artistic point-of-view may be very challenging. In this session we expect papers that describe recent interactive art works (from 2000-now) re-designed by the artists themselves in a quest of self analysis of the artistic practice, no matter if it takes a distant approach or not. 

Institutional issues
Such a volatile artistic practice poses special problems to curators, archivists, art critics and theorists. How to preserve the interactive artworks in museums and art collections? How to exhibit an already exhibited interactive work in a new context? Is it possible to maintain multiple copies of interactive artworks in different museums and art collections? Is there such a concept as the permanent interactive art collection?

Research Issues 
Interactive Art inspired collaborations between artists and engineers, pushing artistic and scientific research to new edges. This session aims at understanding the collaborative process via case studies of applied and fundamental research reported by developers of interactive art projects that may be seen as artworks and platforms for artistic practice at the same time.
