1st Web Audio Conference

This January IRCAM and Mozilla will be hosting the 1st Web Audio Conference in Paris France.  From the conference page:

The WAC is the first international conference on web audio technologies and applications.

The conference welcomes web R&D developers, audio processing scientists, application designers and people involved in web standards.

The conference addresses research, development, design, and standards concerned with emerging audio-related web technologies such as Web Audio API, Web RTC, Web Sockets, and Javascript.

Contributions to the first edition of WAC are encouraged in, but not limited to, the following topics:

  • Innovative audio and music based web applications (with social and user experience aspects)
  • Client-side audio processing (real-time or non real-time)
  • Audio data and metadata formats and network delivery
  • Server-side audio processing and client access
  • Client-side audio engine and rendering
  • Frameworks for audio manipulation
  • Web Audio API design and implementation
  • Client-side audio visualization
  • Multimedia integration
  • Web standards and use of standards within audio based web projects
  • Hardware, tangible interface and use of Web Audio API

This is the first Call For Papers that I’ve seen that, in addition to a paper and poster track, also has a Gig submission track.  Yes, you can propose a 20 minute gig. Accepted gigs will be presented in the conference concert.  I’m thinking of a combined Infinite Jukebox + Ellie Goulding visualization – 20 minutes of flying cubes will show ’em.

The submission deadline is October 10.  Time to dust off my Latex skills.
