12th International Audio Mostly Conference 2017 “Augmented and
Participatory Sound/Music Experiences”
23-26 August 2017, Queen Mary University of London (UK)
Conference website:

Dear all,

Audio Mostly is an interdisciplinary conference on design and experience of
interaction with sound that prides itself on embracing applied theory and
reflective practice.

The 12th edition of the conference, organised by the Centre for Digital
Music at Queen Mary University of London (UK), will be held on 23-26 August
2017 on the theme “Augmented and Participatory Sound/Music Experiences”.

We invite proposals for workshops to be held at Audio Mostly 2017. Selected
workshops will take place either during the main conference (23-25 August)
or on the following day (26 August) according to the program and workshop
organisers’ preferences. Workshops provide an opportunity for delegates to
interact in a context of shared interests and focused discussion. Workshop
participants are likely to network in meaningful ways whilst addressing
issues of research, practice, or education, and generating ideas for
creative applications.

We encourage proposals for two different kinds of workshops:
hands-on/interactive workshops and regular workshops.

*Hands-on/interactive workshops* promote a structured communal activity to
help build community participation and interaction amongst delegates.

*Regular workshops* should provide a forum for presentations and
discussions on topics related to the theme or other emerging and
specialised topics of interest to the Audio Mostly community. Regular
workshops can solicit the submission of papers to be presented at the
workshop but this is not compulsory. In case of paper submission, the
review process will be managed by the workshop organisers in collaboration
with the Audio Mostly chairs.

Workshop organisers should facilitate discussion, help maintain productive
interaction, and encourage participation. Diversity of perspectives should
be encouraged. We accept proposals of workshop that last from 1H30 to a
full day.
