Call For Papers
IRZU – the Institute for Sonic Arts Research in Ljubljana, Slovenia, will host the International Computer Music Conference (ICMC) 2012 in Ljubljana from the 9th to 15th September 2012. We encourage the submission of papers examining any topic related to computer music and digital audio, including: aesthetic, compositional, educational, musicological, perceptual, scientific and technical aspects.
We encourage the submission of papers examining any topic related to computer music and digital audio, including: aesthetic, compositional, educational, musicological, perceptual, scientific and technical aspects.
For the 2012 ICMC we would specially like to encourage the submission of papers connected to the conference theme of "non-cochlearity", within which we would like to open the questions of conceptualizing music and connecting sonic image to language, and meaning. We would like to analyze the role and the possibilities of new technologies to compensate for the lack of articulation/expression potential that is inherently present in the musical language. Besides this global theme however, the submission topics, are very broad – as usual – and include following themes:
Theory and Philosophy
Artificial Intelligence and Music
Mobile Music Computing
Networked Music Performance
Digital Audio Signal Processing
Interaction and Improvisation
New Interfaces for Musical Expression
Languages for Computer Music
Music Information Retrieval
Representation and Models for Computer Music
Software and Hardware Systems
Computer Systems in Music Education
History of Electro-acoustic Music
Composition Systems / Techniques
Submissions open 4th January 2012
Deadline for submission of papers is: 15th February 2012
Notification of selected papers will be announced on 1st May 2012
Final 'Camera-Ready' paper deadline: 1st June 2012

4 pages maximum in Proceedings, 15 minutes lecture presentation + 5 minutes for questions.

Papers should be a substantial contribution to the field and must be accompanied by a written submission, which may be up to 4 (short) or 8 (long) pages including images and references. Posters and demonstrations are a forum for discussion of work-in-progress and/or signiﬁcant or important results that are better suited for more interactive presentation. They must be accompanied by a written paper submission of up to 4 pages in length including images and references. Posters will be presented on a single A2 size sheet during a poster session. Demonstrations will be presented during a poster session. All submissions will be subject to blind review by an international panel. One of the authors must present the work at the conference (and pay the registration fee by 10th June 2012) for it to appear in the proceedings. In exceptional circumstances, the paper chair may propose a more suitable format than the one proposed (i.e. long rather than short paper, demonstration rather than poster).
