In our contemporary age, computer technologies play an ever-increasing role in our lives. These technologies bring with them new concerns and ideas, causing us to adjust our frames of reference and re-evaluate old thoughts and practices. This event will explore human-computer interaction, machine learning, environments and interfaces, performance and programming issues, aesthetics and user-experience.

Papers are invited from musicians, audio artists, sound designers, theorists and thinkers who investigate the subject of interactivity in its various manifestations.

Practical and technical demonstrations of creative work, developing technologies and interfaces are also welcome, and there will be separate spaces available for these during the day.
