We would like to invite you to take part in Sound, Sight, Space and Play (SSSP) 2013, a conference for postgraduate students working in the creative sonic arts, organised by postgraduate students of the Music Technology and Innovation Research Centre (MTIRC), De Montfort University. The ideals of this event are to stimulate co-operation and inspiration between postgraduate students, across institutional boundaries and disciplines, leading to new perspectives on current works and research. We encourage submission of papers and creative work, both completed and in-progress, individual or in groups, for presentation over the course of the event.

– Sound Diffusion
– Acousmatic composition
– Multi Channel Approaches to Composition and Sound Projection
– Installations
– Interactivity
– Audio-Visuals and Media
– Sound design
– Electronics and Circuit Bending
– Performance Practice
– Education and the sonic arts
– Theoretical Implications of the above

Registration Fees
There will be a charge of £35 (early bird rate) or £45 registration fee, per delegate or attendee, in order to cover the costs of the event. There is NO fee for submission. Registration fees would be payable by latest May 2013.

Guidelines for Submission of Papers and Works

General: All submissions will be subject to a double-blind peer-review procedure conducted by PhD students or post docs from different institutions representing the various sub-disciplines of sonic arts and related fields. Talk abstracts should be submitted as a Word document (accepted formats are .rtf, .doc or .txt, no .pdf) via email to dholland@dmu.ac.uk. Submissions must not exceed 300 words in length including a title, headings and references. Your submission must include also your name, affiliation, email address as well as a 200 word biography. Please note that attendance is preferred and you should state on your application whether you will be attending.

Postal applications should be sent to:

Papers: The duration of each standard presentation slot will be 20 minutes followed by a 10-minute formal question period. Keynote presentation slots, lasting 40 minutes with 10 minutes question time, will be awarded to submissions of excellence. Between sessions there will be breaks for informal questions and discussion. We offer the possibility of online publication for papers on a voluntary basis. You will receive more information about the publication after acceptance of the submission. Multimedia support will be provided for talks in the form of video projector, laptop and quad speaker system.

Works: Should be no longer than 20 minutes in duration and can be submitted either on physical media (e.g. CDs/DVDs) via post, or online via file sharing services such as YouSendIt (http://www.yousendit.com) or Dropbox (http://www.dropbox.com). Please make digital submissions and programme notes supporting creative work available to louise.rossiter1@gmail.com. Submissions must be accompanied by technical specifications and requirements (Channel configuration, sample rate, additional information). Works will be performed in the Performance Arts Centre of Excellence (PACE) Building at De Montfort University on the MTIRC’s multi speaker diffusion system. Concert and installation slots are limited and as a result we are only able to accept one submission per person.
