Audio Mostly 2014 -- Call for PhD presentations This year's Audio Mostly conference will run in parallel with a PhD symposium that holds its main activities on the last day. If you are a PhD student wishing to earn 3 ECTS points you can apply to participate by submitting a short abstract that deals with the theme of the conference: Imagining Sound and Music. If accepted, you will be expected to attend the full three days of the conference at the student rate and, if not presenting a paper in the conference, to give a 10-15 minute presentation on the topic and to participate in the symposium's panel discussion. If you are presenting a paper in the conference, you will be expected to take part in the symposium's activities on the last day. Please note, the call for papers for the conference is now closed; this document is a call for participation in the parallel Audio Mostly 2014 PhD symposium. Conference info: The conference theme this year is ³Imagining Sound and Music² How does one design the sound of an imaginary creature and what is the relationship between the artist and the engineer when turning musical imagination into reality? Whether composing musical scores, creating fantastical sonic spaces, or creating monster sounds, the resultant interaction with such imaginary sonic artefacts plays no less a significant role than the realization of the aural imaginary. Topics of Interest: The Audio Mostly conference series is interested in sound interaction design in general, is strongly interdisciplinary, and provides a space for alternative creative approaches. Hence, prospective contributions are not limited to specific methodological approaches and presentations dealing with the theme from either a philosophical or an empirical viewpoint are welcome along with those with a more mixed method. Contributions may address a number of sound- and music-based topics related to the theme that include, but are not limited to: · shared and individual imagination · user experience · fantastical sounds and spaces · creativity · technology · future interfaces for new experiences · interaction · sensory and perceptual modalities · conceptualization · drafting · implementation Important dates Deadline for abstract submission ­ July 11, 2014 Notification of acceptance ­ July 18, 2014 Early registration deadline ­ September 1 2014 Conference/Symposium ­ October 1-3 2014 Abstract submission Registration and further information Conference/Symposium Fees and Payment: Registration before 1/Sept 2014 Student Rate DKK 2,100 Late registration after 1/Sept 2014 Student Rate DKK 3,500 Conference/Symposium fee includes: - Conference/Symposium 3 days. - Poster and demo-session. - Proceedings. - Three lunches. - Coffee and tea during breaks. - One conference dinner.

It is the fourth largest city in Denmark but with a compact, well-preserved centre that is ideal for walking. It is well served by several airlines, often direct from major European cities or via Copenhagen, and a taxi or the number 2 bus can take you from the airport into the city centre within 10-20 minutes. There is also a train service from Copenhagen to the Aalborg central station. Venue The conference will take place at Musikkens Hus <> and is hosted by the Music & Sound Knowledge Group <> in the Department of Communication and Psychology <> at Aalborg University <>. The Musikkens Hus is a purpose-built concert house opening early 2014 and home to both the university's and the conservatory's music activities as well as the Aalborg Symphony Orchestra. Built right on the fjord, it has four concert halls, Denmark's largest pipe organ, and state-of-the-art recording facilities. It is situated about 5 minutes walk from the many bars (outside in October) and restaurants of Aalborg's late mediaeval centre.
