alex International Conference on Live Coding, 13-15 July, Registration open Posted at 11:00am, May 28, 2015
First International Conference on Live Coding ICSRiM, School of Music, University of Leeds 13th-15th July 2015 http://iclc.livecodenetwork.org/ We are happy to announce that registration for ICLC2015 is now open. Live coding turns programming languages into live interfaces, allowing us to directly manipulate computation via its notation. Live coding has great potential, being used for example to create improvised music and visuals, to allow developers to collaborate in new ways, to better understand computational models by making fundamental changes to them on-the-fly, and to find new ways to learn and teach programming. Since the beginning of the TOPLAP movement in 2003 (building on an extensive but hidden pre-history), live coding has grown fast, attracting interest from many people in artistic, creative, scientific, educational, business and mixed contexts. After a good number of international events, the time is right to bring these people together for an academic conference, exchanging ideas and techniques, and enjoying dozens of peer reviewed papers and performances. The conference will also open up the field for people new to live coding, so they may develop and contribute their own perspectives on this emerging field. Join us! Registration is £80 (£50 concessions) for the three day conference including lunches, evening events, and more. See the website for details of the developing programme: http://iclc.livecodenetwork.org/ And register here, completing both the on-line payment and registration forms. http://iclc.livecodenetwork.org/registration.html ICLC is organised by the Live Coding Research Network, which is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

alex CFP: Live Coding Alternatives workshop, Aarhus 2015 Posted at 12:55pm, Apr 10, 2015
Call for position papers and performances as part of Critical Alternatives, 5th Decennial Aarhus Conference, 17 or 18 August 2015, Aarhus University, Denmark. http://www.livecodenetwork.org/live-coding-alternatives/ Live Coding Alternatives is an interdisciplinary workshop (‘live laboratory’) for testing and exploring live coding as a creative, aesthetic and potentially political practice for constructing ‘critical alternatives’ within both computing and everyday life. The workshop explores this emergent field and aims to open up deeper critical questions about contemporary cultural production and computational culture. It is structured around live research practices of writing, presentation and performance, collaboratively interrogated through discussion, and the development of critical frameworks that reflect the live coding dynamic. Live Coding Alternatives emphasizes the relation of live coding to the cultivation of ‘alternative’, potentially subversive, ways of operating within contemporary culture. In addition the workshop explores the alternative possibilities offered by live coding practice as able in itself to generate epistemic claims through software development, improvised live performance and ‘artistic research’. The intention is not only to propose how live coding transforms code and coding practice but to investigate the transformational potential inherent within the process of live coding itself. We ask what possibilities for change and action does the practice of live coding suggest? What alternative ways of ‘being operative’ are evoked? We welcome analytical, theoretical and reflective papers from diverse disciplines but especially want to encourage expanded notions of live coding in the form of performances and alternative presentation modes. Initial areas of interest might include: * Live coding and performance writing, interplay of text and code, experimental notation practices * Live coding, its transformative potential and politics * Live coding, temporality and just-in-time production * Live coding, alternative epistemologies and artistic research * Live coding, subjectivity and ‘life’ coding * Live coding and attribution in reputation economies * Live coding as the persistent traces of interaction Position papers will be circulated in advance. Working throughout the day, there will be a critical interlocutor and facilitator, helping excavate and elaborate key ideas connecting live coding to the cultivation of various ‘critical alternatives’. Results of the workshop will be published on the Live Coding Network website. Important dates: Call goes live: 02 April Proposals due: 20 May (email 300 word proposals to <email obscured>) Results made known: 31 May Workshop: 17 or 18 August 2015, Aarhus Organizers: Alan Blackwell, Reader in Interdisciplinary Design, Computer Laboratory, University of Cambridge (UK). Emma Cocker, Reader in Fine Art, Nottingham Trent University (UK). Geoff Cox, Associate Professor, Participatory IT research centre, Aarhus University (DK).

No, you read right, we want to make this conference as accessible as possible. We would have to charge closer to £400 if we were publishing proceedings via an archival publisher, but we decided to publish ourselves online this year, with a related journal special issue for those who want to go that route. The LCRN is also lucky to have funding by the Arts and Humanities Research Council to subsidise costs, and the University of Leeds school of music is being extremely generous with the use of their facilities. Best wishes,
(question moved from Algorave) Hi Daniele, Good question. We are still calculating costs but think in the region of £40 for early registration including lunch and so on. There will be a concessionary rate too, and we will have a bursary for volunteers. We'll try to update this information soon.

First International Conference on Live Coding 13-15th July 2015, University of Leeds, UK http://www.livecodenetwork.org/iclc2015/ With pleasure we announce the initial call for papers and performances for first International Conference on Live Coding, hosted by ICSRiM in the School of Music, University of Leeds, UK. This conference follows a long line of international events on liveness in computer programming; the Changing Grammars live audio programming symposium in Hamburg 2004, the LOSS Livecode festival in Sheffield 2007, the annual Vivo festivals in Mexico City from 2012, the live.code.festival in Karlsruhe, the LIVE workshop at ICSE on live programming, and Dagstuhl Seminar 13382 on Collaboration and Learning through Live Coding in 2013, as well as numerous workshops, concerts, algoraves and conference special sessions. It also follows a series of Live Coding Research Network symposia on diverse topics, and the activities of the TOPLAP community since 2004. We hope that this conference will act as a confluence for all this work, helping establish live coding as an interdisciplinary field, exploring liveness in symbolic abstractions, and understanding the perceptual, creative, productive, philosophical and cultural consequences. The proceedings will be published with ISSN, and there will also be an follow-on opportunity to contribute to a special issue of the Journal on Performance Arts and Digital Media; details will be announced soon. Timeline * Templates available and submissions system open: 8th December 2014 * Performance submissions deadline: 16th February 2015 * Paper submissions deadline: 1st March 2015 * Notification of results: 10th April 2015 * Camera ready deadline: 10th May 2015 * Conference: 13-15th July 2015 Submission categories * Long papers (6-12 pages) * Short papers (4-6 pages) * Poster/demo papers (2-4 pages) * Performances (1 page abstract and technical rider) ICLC is an interdisciplinary conference, so a wide range of approaches are encouraged and we recognise that the appropriate length of a paper may vary considerably depending on the approach. However, all submissions must propose an original contribution to Live Coding research, cite relevant previous work, and apply appropriate research methods. The following long list of topics, contributed by early career researchers in the field, are indicative of the breadth of research we wish to include: * Live coding and the body; tangibility, gesture, embodiment * Creative collaboration through live code * Live coding in education, teaching and learning * Live coding terminology and the cognitive dimensions of notation * Live language and interface design * CUIs: Code as live user interface * Domain specific languages, and the live coding ecosystem * Programming language experience design: visualising live process and state in code interfaces * Virtuosity, flow, aesthetics and phenomenology of live code * Live coding: composition, improvisation or something else? * Time in notation, process, and perception * Live coding of and inside computer games and virtual reality * Live programming languages as art: esoteric and idiosyncratic systems * Bugfixing in/as performance * Individual expression in shared live coding environments * Live coding across the senses and algorithmic synaesthesia * Audience research and ethnographies of live coding * Live coding without computers * Live coding before Live Coding; historical perspectives on live programming languages * Heritage, vintage and nostalgia – bringing the past to life with code * Live coding in public and in private * Cultural processes of live programming language design * General purpose live programming languages and live coding operating systems * Connecting live coding with ancient arts or crafts practice * Live coding and the hacker/maker movement: DIY and hacker aesthetics * Critical reflections; diversity in the live coding community * The freedom of liveness, and free/open source software Submissions which work beyond the above are encouraged, but all should have live coding research or practice at their core.
