[CALL / NIME community] ICMC2012 submissions are now open


The *ICMC2012* submission servers are now open: <>
The deadline for Music and Paper submissions is*February 15th, 2012*

The International Computer Music Conference (ICMC) 2012 will be held in
Ljubljana, Slovenia. It is organized by IRZU – the Institute for Sonic
Arts Research <> and supported by the Faculty of
Computer and Information Science as well as the Faculty of Arts,
University of Ljubljana. The event will take place on *9-15 September

The conference welcomes the submission of a wide range of papers and
music, covering all aspects of technical, creative and aesthetic issues
around the use of computers in music. The theme of the 2012 conference
is *”Non-Cochlear Sound”*, which can be understood as an analogy to the
Duchampian notion of non-retinal art. The aim is to investigate the
potential of sound as a medium and further, the potentials of music in
conjunction with new technologies to create new possibilities of
artistic expression, which could create a closer relation to language
and consequentially, enable generation of meaning and production of
knowledge. Submissions emphasizing this theme are particularly welcomed
and, like in the recent years, ICMC 2012 will again include a piece plus
paper category in which it will be possible for such links to be made
explicit. The conference will also be programmed to juxtapose paper
sessions on particular topics with concerts in which related ideas
inform musical works.
