Call for Papers

Papers can be submitted for review via the online paper submission system. Templates for paper submission for LaTeX and OpenOffice/LibreOffice are available here.

Papers must be written and presented in English, 4—8 pages, with abstract (50—100 words, max. 500 words) and up to 5 keywords. In general a presentation should take 25—30 minutes followed by 5 minutes discussion.

The copyright of the paper remains with the author, but we reserve the right to create printed proceedings from all submitted (and accepted) papers.

Below is a list of possible subjects for papers and presentations. This list is meant as a starting point, not to restrict you.

  • Spatial Audio
  • Education
  • Live performance
  • Audio Hardware Support
  • Signal Processing
  • Music Composition
  • Audio Languages
  • Sound Synthesis
  • Audio Plugins
  • MIDI
  • Music Production
  • Linux Kernel
  • Physical Computing
  • Interface Design
  • Linux Distributions
  • Networked Audio
  • Video
  • Games
  • Media Art
  • Licensing
  • Android audio

We very much welcome practical papers or software demos that outline artistic creative processes or workflows based on Linux audio applications or systems ("how I use Linux Audio applications to create my music/media art").

Not all papers need to directly address Linux Audio. There is no limitation for subjects from related fields like open source music applications, free/libre software for music or audio/visual research and open-content.

NB. Papers should be as complete as possible on submission. Until submission closes it is possible to replace/update files in the openconf system. Submissions will be peer-reviewed and after the notification of acceptance there is a small time-window for updates and last-minute changes.
