Coming up soon: MOCO'24 'Beyond Control' conference at Utrecht University


The 9th International Conference on Movement and Computing will be held at Utrecht University from Thursday, May 30th to Sunday, June 2nd, 2024. Early Bird conference rates apply until April 30th.

The MOCO’24 conference, 'Beyond Control' in Utrecht, marks the 10-year anniversary of the pioneering MOCO initiative, which has convened researchers from the arts, humanities, and sciences for interdisciplinary encounters at the intersection of movement and computing. Since MOCO is organized at the Faculty of Humanities of Utrecht University this year, the conference spotlights the critical potential of exchanges between arts, humanities, and sciences.

How can arts and performance be understood as a place for exploration and inspiration, as a ‘testbed’ for new ideas relating to movement and computing? MOCO'24 presents Gibson/Martelli as Keynote Artists. Gibson/Martelli is a European art duo that works with machine learning, live simulation, performance capture, installation, and moving images to create immersive virtual realities (

The conference program includes paper and poster presentations from representatives of leading institutions in the research area of movement and computing around the world. Presented at the Parnassos Cultural Centre, the program also includes a selection of more than 15 Practice Works, which encompass VR installations, robot encounters, workshops, and performances - both indoor and in public spaces.

In collaboration with the SPRING Performing Arts Festival (May 23-June 1), conference participants can attend performances relevant to the conference program, including Unbearable Darkness by Berlin-based Singaporean artist Choy Ka Fai, whose multidisciplinary art practice situates itself at the intersection of dance, media art and performance, and Una Isla by Agrupacion Senor Serrano, a Barcelona-based theatre company that creates original shows that combine live video, models, text, performance and objects (

Early Bird rates are available until April 30th. Discounted rates are available for PhD researchers, students, and Utrecht University staff members. MOCO’24 also offers a limited number of vouchers for artists for free participation in the conference. Follow the link below for more information:
