Call for Papers, Posters and Presentations

Papers can be submitted for review via the online paper submission system. Please use the available templates for papers. The zip includes templates for LaTeX and OpenOffice/LibreOffice including information about margins and layout.

Papers must be written and presented in English, 4—8 pages, with abstract (50—250 words) and up to 5 keywords. In general a presentation should take about half an hour.

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

For poster-presentations or lightning-talks we only require an abstract (50—250 words). You may optionally provide written documentation for inclusion in the printed proceedings (if you chose to do so, please use one of the templates, minimum two pages). The duration of a lightning-talk will be about 5 minutes, posters will be presented in a separate poster session.

Please highlight the presentation format (Topic: «poster», «lightning-talk» in the submission system). With exception of submission-length and presentation duration, the same rules as for papers also apply to poster presentations and lightning-talks.

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
  • Live Coding

  • Physical Computing
  • Interface Design
  • GNU/Linux Distributions
  • Networked 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 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 time-window for updates and last-minute changes.

Music, Installations and Workshops can be submitted for review via the online music/installations/workshops submission system.

  • The Electroacoustic Music Concerts (fixed media or live performance works)
  • The Linux Sound Night (danceable, live performances preferred)
