Call for papers - Stereo & Immersive Media — 2015 International Conference
National Archive of Torre do Tombo, Lisbon, Portugal
October 7-9, 2015
Stereo & Immersive Media — 2015 International Conference aims to bring together researchers, artists and archivists working on visual media renowned for their stereoscopic and/or immersive features. Stereo and immersive media environments provide an expanded field for photographic media since the 19th century. The recent revival of interest in stereo and immersive technologies has set an opportunity to research its historical roots and also the present-day challenges to visual culture.
Stereo & Immersive Media — 2015 International Conference will present in its opening plenary session the final results of the research project Stereo Visual Culture dedicated to the first national study of stereo photography in Portugal. The conference venue, the National Archive of Torre do Tombo, will host the exhibition ‘The Third Image — Stereoscopic Photography in Portugal and the Desire for 3D’, presenting the main authors, themes and compositions from 31 stereo collections of 9 national Portuguese archives and museums.
This conference welcomes a diversity of approaches and topics that may contribute to the critical understanding of stereo and immersive media today. Suggested research topics for contributions include:
- Stereoscopic photography;
- Stereo photography, archival and curatorial practices;
- Immersive cinematic media;
- Scientific stereoscopic practices;
- Immersive media art installations;

- Haptic and visual media cultures.
