International Computer Music conference (spain)

The Phonos Foundation, the Pompeu Fabra University of Barcelona, and the Higher School of Music of Catalonia in conjunction with the International Computer Music Association, is proud to announce ICMC 2005. The conference will take place in Barcelona, Spain, from the 5th to 9th of September 2005, with pre-conference workshops on September the 4th.

ICMC is the pre-eminent annual gathering of computer music practitioners from around the world. Its unique interleaving of professional paper presentations and concerts of new computer music compositions creates a vital synthesis of science, technology, and the art of music.

By choosing free sound as this year's leitmotif, we aim to emphasise the idea of freeing sound from its current aesthetic, technical and legal confines. We wish to promote an open discussion about the extent to which sound is considered a community asset -- an asset that belongs to society and cannot be privatised. Thus, we encourage contributions that emphasise these and related topics.

We invite original contributions in all areas of the computer music field in a number of formats. However, we are also open to any proposal, and encourage all submissions, including those that do not fit the categories below.

We issue the following calls:

* Call for music, video, and installations (deadline February 5th, 2005)
* Call for papers and posters (deadline March 5th, 2005)
* Call for demonstrations (deadline March 5th, 2005)
* Call for inspirational ideas (deadline May 23rd, 2005)
* Call for workshops (deadline April 5th, 2005)
* Call for off-ICMC (deadline April 5th, 2005)
* Call for exhibitors (deadline June 5th, 2005)
* Call for panels (deadline April 5th, 2005)

To promote the idea of free sound, the organisers of ICMC 2005 are setting up the Free Sound Project, a website dedicated to the sharing and usage of copyleft sounds. Thus, we are making a special call for copyleft sounds with no specific deadline. For more information, visit this website again in the near future.

To keep up to date with all of the latest news and information about ICMC 2005 please subscribe to our mailing list.

Detailed information on the conference and submission formats can be found on this site.

We are looking forward to your contributions!

The ICMC 2005 Team
