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


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.
