The Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA) at Stanford University is a multi-disciplinary facility where composers and researchers work together using computer-based technology both as an artistic medium and as a research tool. CCRMA has been using and developing Linux as an audio platform since 1997.


LAC is organized by a community of GNU/Linux free/libre software users and developers that communicate through the Linux-Audio-Users and Linux-Audio-Developers mailing lists. LAC2012 is under the auspices of CCRMA, organized by Fernando Lopez-Lezcano and Bruno Ruviaro, Frank Neumann, Robin Gareus and Julius O. Smith III.
