Linux Audio Conference

 Lectures / Demos / Workshops / Concerts / Linux Soundnight

Köln, 28.2.-2.3.2008

The 6th Linux Audio Conference is taking place in Cologne (Germany) Feb 28th to March 2nd 2008.

The Academy of Media Arts, Cologne, is proud to host the Linux Audio Conference 2008, where once a year programmers and artists, musicians, composers and practioneers gather to discuss and explore new and important developments in making music and sounds with Linux and Open Source software.

The Linux Audio Conference is both a meeting of developers writing audio software for Linux as it is a music festival, where artists from all over the world show how free software can create fresh and exciting new sounds.

A wide range of workshops, talks and presentations will once again prove, how Tux, the friendly penguin, spreads its little wings into areas, that no longer are the realm for the big fish alone - like computer music, sound engineering and audio distribution. The LAC aims at bringing together developers and users of Linux and open source audio software with the goal of information sharing, project discussions, making (and dancing to) music.

Each day of the conference there will be a concert which features music composed and created with open source software.

We are looking forward to many interesting submissions for the 6th International Linux Audio Conference 2008 and we hope to see you in Cologne 2008!
