The International Computer Music Conference (ICMC) 2018 invites submissions of installations, music, panel proposals, papers, and workshop proposals to be held in Daegu, South Korea from August 5-10 2018.

Celebrating our 43rd ICMC, the first one in South Korea, we invite the community to consider this year’s theme Preserve | Engage | Advance as it broadly relates to the diverse field of computer music including auditory display, cognition, composition, digital audio effects, digital libraries, DSP, MIR, musicology, multimedia, NIME, performance, perception, soundscape, and WebAudio.

Taking the conference theme to heart ourselves, we are putting forward two programs that we hope will contribute towards the preservation, engagement, and advancement of computer music:

Soundscape Heritage – (1) Capture, archive, and preserve soundscapes through a 3D lens: data-Driven, community-Driven, and art-Driven. (2) Launch campaign to engage the community in “Soundmapping our World” to preserve our soundscape heritage and advance technologies to sense and help mitigate the global urban noise pollution phenomenon.

Computer Music Heritage – (1) Capture, archive, and preserve works presented at ICMCs starting with the 2018 conference, so that they are no longer lost after each conference ends. (2) Explore archive access possibilities including the what, how, and who, in order to advance content-based music exploration for computer pedagogy, research, and discovery.
