Tell them you are with the Aesthetics group so you can be placed at a location near our meeting and so we get credit for the booking. You also need to register for the meeting at the off-site rate: click "register" above.
FINAL PROGRAM (3/10/2017)
The Asilomar Conference Grounds on the Monterey peninsula have served as the stage for the Pacific Division Meeting of the American Society for Aesthetics for over 40 years. The idyllic setting at Asilomar has traditionally produced a strong program with a broad draw from within philosophy of art.
The invited speaker for 2017 is filmmaker and art historian Olivier Asselin (University de Montréal) who will speak on the topic of augmented reality and the manners in which it might have an impact on cinematographic practices. Commentary will be provided by Gemma Argüello (U. de las Americas Puebla).
*** In order to promote and facilitate discussions among participants, and further benefit from the fact that we do not run concurrent sessions, speakers will be invited to limit their presentation time to 10 minutes with a focus on their paper’s main claims and arguments. Each presentation will be followed by a brief commentary (5 minutes) and a 25 minutes long discussion period.***
Selected papers and commentaries will be made available to all registered participants ahead of the conference. Should it be needed, the organizers will help with the production of visual support such as PowerPoint presentations.
