CfP: Audio Mostly 2019

The Audio Mostly (www.audiomostly.com) conference series is interested in sound Interaction Design & Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) in general. Audio Mostly will take place from the 18th to 20th of September 2019 at the University of Nottingham in the city of Nottingham in the UK. The conference provides a space to reflect on the role of sound/music in our lives and how to understand, develop and design systems which relate to sound and music. The special theme for the conference this year is ‘A Journey in Sound’. This year the theme of the conference is open to interpretation, but people might think about the following, in relation to the theme:

  • Sonic aspects of digital stories, documentaries and archives
  • The soundtrack to our lives. Archiving and sharing sound
  • The emotional potential of a sound, how might this be used to support interaction
  • The different uses of sound and music across different settings
  • The re-use of recollections and memories by composers and sound designers
  • The development of musical tools that can let us express our experiences over time
  • Socio-technical uses of AI create highly personalised soundtracks that respond to one’s context
  • Adaptive sound and music use in journeys, time and the creative use of data

They encourage original regular papers (oral/poster presentation) addressing the conference theme or other topics from the list provided below. They welcome multidisciplinary approaches involving fields such as music informatics, information and communication technologies, sound design, music performance, visualisation, composition, perception/cognition and aesthetics.
