Submission deadline: 12th March 2007

Combining music and mobile technology promises exciting future
developments in a rapidly emerging field. Devices such as mobile phones,
Walkmans and iPods have already brought music to the ever-changing
social and geographic locations of their users and reshaped their
experience of the urban landscape. With new properties such as ad hoc
networking, Internet connection, and context-awareness, mobile music
technology offers countless new artistic, commercial and socio-cultural
opportunities for music creation, listening and sharing. How can we push
forward the already successful combination of music and mobile
technology? What new forms of interaction with music lie ahead, as
locative media and music use merge into new forms of everyday  

This series of annual workshops began to explore and establish the
emerging field of mobile music technology in 2004. This fourth edition
of the Mobile Music Workshop in 2007 offers a unique opportunity to
participate in the development of mobile music and hands-on experience
of cutting-edge technology.

This yearís workshop is hosted by STEIM and Waag Society in Amsterdam,
The Netherlands, and partners with the Futuresonic Festival in
Manchester, England, taking place later the same week. The programme of
the workshop will consist of keynote presentations from invited
speakers, peer-reviewed paper presentations, poster sessions, in-depth
discussions about the crucial issues of mobile music technology, demos
of state-of-the-art projects, break-out sessions and live events.
Registered participants will take part in hands-on sessions conducted by
leaders in the field. In addition to traditional presentation sessions,
the programme includes events open to a general audience, facilitating
the presentation of artworks and technological breakthroughs to a wider

The Mobile Music Workshop sets the stage for a collaboration that brings
together leading institutions in both experimental electronic music and
mobile media. STEIM (the studio for electro-instrumental music) is a
centre for electronic music production well known in the performing
arts. STEIM promotes the idea that Touch is crucial in communicating
with electronic and digital arts technologies, a vision that over the
years has given birth to physical, sensor-based musical instruments.
Waag Society is a research and development institute in the fields of
networked art, education and creative industries. Waag develops
platforms for artists to reach society through networked collaboration,
media streaming, and locative media.


We invite practitioners, artists, designers, hackers and researchers
from all areas, including music, technology development, new media,
sound-art, music distribution, cultural/media studies, locative media
and industry to submit work and register to attend.
Don't miss this chance to help shape the mobile music landscape of the
Participants are encouraged to submit their work in mobile music
technology to the categories below. The partnership with the Futuresonic
Festival ( allows those coming to Europe to
make a single trip to attend both events.

* Papers

We invite submissions of workshop papers presenting new projects,
approaches or reflections exploring the topic of mobile music. Potential
submissions could include but are not limited to mobile music systems or
enabling technologies, interface design, legal issues, user studies,
ethnographic fieldwork, social implications, art pieces and other areas
relevant to mobile music.
Accepted paper authors will be given a time slot during the workshop for
presentation and discussion of their work.
Format: up to 8 pages in ACM SIG publications format (shorter papers
welcome). For templates, see

* Posters

We also invite the contribution of posters that document
work-in-progress projects or ideas in similar areas of mobile music
technology as the papers. Posters will be on display during the duration
of the conference. We will arrange a poster presentation session where
attendees will be able to discuss the works with the authors.
Format: 2 pages in ACM SIG publications format

* Demonstrations

We also invite submissions of work to the demo category. Besides
encouraging paper and poster presenters to bring a demonstration as a
complement their presentation, we encourage submissions of stand-alone
demos of mobile music systems or enabling technology. Their
implementation should be ready enough to be demoed, and will possibly be
shown to the general public during open sessions depending on their
