Audio Mostly 2014 parallel PhD Symposium -- Deadline Extension

Audio Mostly 2014 -- Call for PhD presentations

>>Note: The deadline has been extended until July 18th.<<

This year's Audio Mostly conference will run in parallel with a PhD
symposium that
holds its main activities on the last day. If you are a PhD student
wishing to
earn 3 ECTS points you can apply to participate by submitting a short
that deals with the theme of the conference: Imagining Sound and Music. If
accepted, you will be expected to attend the full three days of the
at the student rate and, if not presenting a paper in the conference, to
give a
10-15 minute presentation on the topic and to participate in the
panel discussion. If you are presenting a paper in the conference, you
will be
expected to take part in the symposium's activities on the last day.

Please note, the call for papers for the conference is now closed; this
document is a
call for participation in the parallel Audio Mostly 2014 PhD symposium.

Conference info:
The conference theme this year is ³Imagining Sound and Music²

How does one design the sound of an imaginary creature and what is the
between the artist and the engineer when turning musical imagination into
reality? Whether composing musical scores, creating fantastical sonic
spaces, or creating monster sounds, the
resultant interaction with such imaginary sonic artefacts plays no less a
significant role than the realization of the aural imaginary.

Topics of Interest:
The Audio Mostly conference series is interested in sound interaction
design in
general, is strongly interdisciplinary, and provides a space for
creative approaches. Hence, prospective contributions are not limited to
methodological approaches and presentations dealing with the theme from
either a
philosophical or an empirical viewpoint are welcome along with those with a
more mixed method. Contributions may address a number of sound- and
topics related to the theme that include, but are not limited to:
· shared and individual imagination
· user experience
· fantastical sounds and spaces
· creativity
· technology
· future interfaces for new experiences
· interaction
· sensory and perceptual modalities
· conceptualization
· drafting
· implementation

Aalborg is located in North Jutland on the Limfjord. It is the fourth
largest city in Denmark but with a
compact, well-preserved centre that is ideal for walking. It is well
served by
several airlines, often direct from major European cities or via

centre within 10-20 minutes. There is also a train service from Copenhagen
the Aalborg central station.

a purpose-built
concert house opening early 2014 and home to
both the university's and the conservatory's music activities as well as
Aalborg Symphony Orchestra. Built right on the fjord, it has four concert
halls, Denmark's largest pipe organ, and state-of-the-art recording
