ACC 2014 : Artist-Centred Computing Workshop
Call For Papers
Call for Papers
We are soliciting works with technical and artistic merit, in areas such as:
* domain-specific languages vs general purpose languages for artistic creation: do artists need different computing environments from the rest of us?
* in-depth technical analyses of and comparisons between artist-centred languages
* how do we evaluate languages for artists?
* what would a language designed by Beethoven look like? Michaelangelo? Stravinsky?
* livecoding and live patching
* what can artists learn from software engineers?
* artistic vs prosaic software visualisation
* visual languages for artists
And if you think the whole notion of “Artist-Centred Computing” is just so much rubbish, then submit a paper and argue your case!
Ross Bencina is a programmer/artist and the creator of AudioMulch: software for real-time audio processing and improvised music performance.
15-20 minute (TBC) presentations (including questions), live performance/creation encouraged. A sweet PA and projector will be provided—use them!

Come to Melbourne; hang out in hipster laneway cafes, go to an indie shoegaze side gig, sink a beer at a rooftop bar. Seriously, we can hook you up with any of those things. Melbourne is internationally recognised (by people from Melbourne) as Australia’s cultural capital.
