The ICMC2012 submission servers are now open: http://www.icmc2012.si/submit.html . The deadline for Music and Paper submissions is February 15th, 2012
The International Computer Music Conference (ICMC) 2012 will be held in Ljubljana, Slovenia. It is organized by IRZU - the Institute for Sonic Arts Research and supported by the Faculty of Computer and Information Science as well as the Faculty of Arts, University of Ljubljana. The event will take place on 9-15 September 2012.
The conference welcomes the submission of a wide range of papers and music, covering all aspects of technical, creative and aesthetic issues around the use of computers in music. The theme of the 2012 conference is "Non-Cochlear Sound", which can be understood as an analogy to the Duchampian notion of non-retinal art. The aim is to investigate the potential of sound as a medium and further, the potentials of music in conjunction with new technologies to create new possibilities of artistic _expression_, which could create a closer relation to language and consequentially, enable generation of meaning and production of knowledge. Submissions emphasizing this theme are particularly welcomed and, like in the recent years, ICMC 2012 will again include a piece plus paper category in which it will be possible for such links to be made explicit. The conference will also be programmed to juxtapose paper sessions on particular topics with concerts in which related ideas inform musical works.
Submissions can be made through the conference webstite: www.icmc2012.si
We welcome paper submissions for oral, poster or demo presentation in the (non-exclusive) areas of:
The ICMC 2012 will be held in collaboration with our annual sonic arts festival EarZoom.
