2nd International Conference on Live Coding (ICLC 2016)
12-15th October 2016, McMaster University, Canada
http://iclc.livecodenetwork.org/2016/

On behalf of the organizing committee, the steering committee and the
Live Coding Research Network, we are pleased to invite abstracts for
proposed contributions to the International Conference on Live Coding
2016 (ICLC 2016), which will take place at McMaster University in
Hamilton, Ontario, Canada from October 12th to October 15th, 2016.
ICLC 2016 follows the inaugural International Conference on Live
Coding held last year at the University of Leeds, UK (
http://iclc.livecodenetwork.org/2015/ ) .

Live coding is making changes to algorithms as they run, with the
possibility for both live feedback and a live audience. A growing
movement has explored live coding to create music and visuals in
performance settings, while software engineering has investigated new
directions in live programming language design. Researchers in many
other disciplines (education, dance, psychology, ethnography and
others) have begun to examine live coding’s potential to generate new
research questions, methods and solutions. For more information on
live coding, please refer to the TOPLAP website (http://toplap.org),
and to the proceedings  (https://zenodo.org/collection/user-iclc2015)
and video archive (http://is.gd/iclcvid) of ICLC 2015.

Live coding performances during ICLC 2016 will take place at a diverse
selection of venues both on the McMaster University campus and in
downtown Hamilton. Some performance sessions will take place in
McMaster’s LIVELab, a research centre and performance space that
includes an active acoustics system, a large multi-channel speaker
array addressed via network audio, a video wall and a Disklavier
piano. The conference has been timed to coincide with Hamilton’s
monthly art crawl and will involve collaboration with a number of
local arts organizations. The final event of the conference will be an
algorave at Hamilton’s Spice Factory.

ICLC 2016 will be a single-stream conference, with sessions organized
into three broad thematic groups: (1) “Collaboration and Networks”
will encompass the intersection of live coding with computer
networking and, more broadly, with technologies and practices of
collaboration; (2) “Interpretations” examines the history, semiotics
and hermeneutics of live coding, with a sensitivity to diverse
perspectives and multiple points of origin; (3) “Applications” unfolds
the fullest possible range of application of live coding (including
but not limited to the live coding of graphics, motion, and design).
All submissions proposing an original contribution to Live Coding
research and practice will be welcomed, including submissions that
challenge these conference themes. All submissions are expected to
cite relevant previous work, and apply appropriate research methods.

All accepted contributions will be cited in an application for support
from Canada’s Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC),
which, if granted, may make available limited funding to support
delegates’ travel expenses. The proceedings of the conference will be
published with an ISBN, and a per-paper DOI, and there will be an
opportunity to contribute to the inaugural issue of a new,
open-access, peer-reviewed journal, Networked Imagination.

Timeline:
        22nd February 2016      online peer review system opens
        4th April 2016*         deadline for submissions
        29th April 2016         notification of acceptance
        30th June 2016          camera-ready deadline for proceedings
        12-15th October 2016    conference

Contribution types:
        Short Papers / Extended Abstracts (2-4 pages in proceedings)
        Long Papers (5-12 pages in proceedings)
        Posters and Demonstrations (2-4 pages in proceedings)
        Performances (video documentation published following conference)
        Workshops (700-word abstract in proceedings)

To propose a short paper, extended abstract (2-4 pages) or long paper
(5-12 pages) for the conference, please submit a complete draft of the
paper/abstract, a condensed outline (100-150 words) and a short
biography (100-150 words for each contributor) through the online peer
review system at http://iclc2016.mcmaster.ca/

To propose a poster or demonstration for the conference, please submit
a complete draft of an accompanying short paper (2-4 pages), a
condensed outline (100-150 words) and a short biography (100-150 words
for each contributor) through the online peer review system at
http://iclc2016.mcmaster.ca/

To propose a live coding performance for the conference, please submit
a detailed abstract (700 words), a stable link to a single video
example, a brief outline/programme note (100-150 words) and a short
biography (100-150 words for each contributor) through the online peer
review system at http://iclc2016.mcmaster.ca/ . We encourage both
risk-taking proposals which push forward the state of the art, and
refined presentations of highly-developed practice. In either case,
please support your submission with a clear description of your
performance, and discussion of influences and prior art as
appropriate. Please provide complete answers to the technical
questions asked by the online peer review system during your
submission.

To propose a workshop for the conference, please submit a detailed
abstract (700 words), a condensed outline (100-150 words) and a short
biography (100-150 words for each contributor) through the online peer
review system at http://iclc2016.mcmaster.ca/ . Please provide
complete answers to the technical questions asked by the online peer
review system during your submission.

Please email feedback and/or questions to conference chair David
Ogborn <[log in to unmask]>.

* (Note: an earlier announcement included a later deadline. This
slightly earlier deadline is necessary in order to support the
conference’s application for funding.)
