MOCO’14 (International Workshop on Movement and Computing) is the first edition of a series of international multidisciplinary workshops on human movement, its representation and digital transformations.

MOCO aims to gather academics and practitioners interested in the themes of perception, modeling, movement capture and their use in interactive systems.


These aspects are becoming more and more important in the performing arts (music, dance, theater) and digital practices. MOCO will bring together innovative work by researchers and artists. This year, MOCO welcomes renowned scientific speakers including David Kirsh (professor, University of California San Diego) who has worked with the choreographer Wayne McGregor.

Workshop Chairs: Frédéric Bevilacqua, Jules Françoise (IRCAM), Sarah Fdili Alaoui, Philippe Pasquier, Thecla Schiphorst 
(SIAT, Simon Fraser University, Canada).
Organization Committee: Sylvie Benoit, 
Frédéric Bevilacqua, Éric Boyer, Emmanuel Fléty, Jules Françoise,
 Norbert Schnell, Diemo Schwarz, Hugues Vinet (IRCAM).
