AIS2 Intersections: Soundscapes and Music, Soundscapes and Identity: An International Conference

As part of The Art of Immersive Soundscapes II: a two-week summer institute, University of Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, June 20-22, 2007

Call for papers

The Departments of Music and Media Production and Studies at the
University of Regina, Canada, are hosting an international conference on
the interactions between soundscapes, music, and identity from June 20-22,
2007. Keynote speakers will be the distinguished Canadian audio artists
and composers Dr. Christos Hatzis (University of Toronto) and Prof. Barry
Truax (Simon Fraser University). The conference is held in conjunction
with the SSHRC-funded two-week Summer Institute, The Art of Immersive
Soundscapes 2.

Proposals are invited for papers, performances, and presentations that
address aspects of the relationships between different kinds of
soundscapes, musics, and concepts of identity. Topics may encompass
identity in personal, national, political contexts; musics ranging from
traditional acoustic to electronic and computer-generated; and varieties
of soundscapes, from environmental to electronic.  Multi-media
presentations are welcome.

Papers/presentations are limited to 20 minutes in length. We are currently
pursuing opportunities for publication of the proceedings.

Abstracts should be 250-500 words long and be submitted by e-mail, by
April 1, 2007, to the address listed below. The abstract should be
included in the body of the e-mail, as should the submitter's name,
telephone number, e-mail address, and institutional affiliation.
Identifying information will be removed before evaluation by the program
committee. E-mail notifications will be sent by May 1, 2007.
