INSAM Journal: Call for Papers

ISSN 2637 – 1898

Dear Colleagues,

INSAM Journal of Contemporary Music, Art and Technology is very pleased to invite you to collaborate on the second issue of our journal (I/2019).

The main theme of INSAM Journal No. 2 is Artificial Intelligence in Music, Arts, and Theory. Having the notion of technology in contemporary theory and artistic practice as our standing preoccupation, this time we are encouraged by Catherine Malabou’s new observations regarding brain plasticity and metamorphosis of the (natural and artificial) intelligence. Revising her previous stance that the difference between brain plasticity and computational architecture is not authentic and grounded, in her new book, Métamorphoses de l’intelligence: Que faire de leur cerveau bleu? (2017), Malabou admits that the plasticity – the potential of neuron architecture to be shaped by environment, habits, and education – can also be a feature of artificial intelligence. “The future of artificial intelligence,” she writes, “is biological.”

Having that in mind, we are interested to know how the plasticity of AI, and, for that matter, AI in general, can be brought into music, performing and visual arts, as well as in theory of art and contemporary philosophy. Therefore, we invite you to discuss topics that include (and are not limited to) following areas:

  • Arts and Robotics;
  • Artificial intelligence in Music;
  • Artificial intelligence in Music Therapy;
  • Artificial intelligence in Performing Arts;
  • Computer generated poetry;
  • Philosophy of/and/in Artificial Intelligence.

INSAM Journal is structured in four sections: The Main Theme, Beyond the Main Theme, Reviews, and Interviews. The main topic predefines only The Main Theme section; in other sections, we welcome your contributions related to contemporary art and media theory, artistic music, performing and visual arts, technology.

Deadline for the theme and abstract submission is March 1, 2019, and for the full-text submission April 15, 2019. You will be notified by March 15, 2019, if your topic has been accepted. For detailed information on the manuscript preparation, see Authors Guidelines. Send your text to

Looking forward to our cooperation,
