We invite the submission of papers examining aesthetic, compositional, educational, musicological, scientific, and technological aspects of computer music and digital audio. Further details are available below and at the conference website (

The online submission system will open on 5 January 2009.

Papers selected for lecture presentation will be allotted either 20- or 30-minutes during single-track technical sessions. They should be of substantial contribution to the field and must be accompanied by a written paper submission, which may be up to 4 (short) or 8 (long) pages including images and references. Posters and demonstrations are a forum for discussion of work-in-progress and/or significant or important results that are better suited for more interactive presentation.
