Besides its overall conference theme, the conference will additionally put a special focus the following topics:
• Media aesthetic education and the role of listening
• The Local Composition: Analyzing the network of the global soundscape’s elements
• Listening on the Move: the method of soundwalking and the identity of place

Encouraging younger people to submit themes and to attend, the conference will provide a special next generation thread.

Our conference venue is not far from Frankfurt Airport, in beautiful historic surroundings, providing not only the productive frame for an interesting conference, but also attractive landscapes, very good wine, culinary highlights, therefore good conditions for exchange and conviviality. All this makes, too, a central starting point for your summerbreak, be it locally, nationally or internationally.

Best greetings,
Sabine Breitsameter & Claudia Soeller-Eckert
