Dear all,

as a member of the Audio Mostly steering committee I would like to make 
you aware of this interdisciplinary conference that started in 2006. We 
would love to open up towards the MEI community as there is already a 
considerable overlap. In past years Audio Mostly (AM) has been a perfect 
place for bringing together different disciplines from academia and 
industry, theory and practice. We would love to have contributions from 
the MEI community this year. Here comes the official CfP.

*Audio Mostly 2019: A Journey in Sound
*18th to 20th September 2019
University of Nottingham, Nottingham, UK
www.audiomostly.com <http://www.audiomostly.com>

*Audio Mostly is an audio focused interdisciplinary conference on 
design, interacting with sound and technology, which embraces applied 
theory and practice-based research.

It is an annual conference which brings together thinkers and doers from 
academia and industry who share an interest in sonic interaction and the 
use of audio for interface design. This remit covers product design, 
auditory displays, computer games and virtual environments, new digital 
musical instruments, educational applications and workplace tools, /as 
well as the topics listed below/. It further includes fields such as the 
psychology of sound and music, cultural studies, systems engineering, 
and everything in between in which sonic Human-Computer Interaction 
plays a role.

Audio Mostly 2019 will be an inclusive event for all, bringing together 
a whole range of people and communities. It will be a lively and 
sociable mix of oral and poster paper presentations, demos, and 
workshops. We welcome submissions from industry, academia and interested 
parties in each of these categories.

As in previous years, the Audio Mostly 2019 proceedings will be 
published by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) 
<https://www.acm.org/> (/to be confirmed/) and made available through 
their digital library <https://dl.acm.org/>. Regular papers, posters and 
demos/installations will be double-blind peer reviewed. It is envisaged 
that there will be a special issue of a journal relating to the 
conference, as with previous years.


The special theme for the conference this year is A Journey in Sound and 
we would particularly welcome papers relating to this theme for at the 
conference this year. We often have different experiences of sound and 
music though out our lives, there are sounds that remind us of different 
places and people. We also have different playlists and songs that take 
us back and remind us of certain times and events. Throughout our lives 
we are interacting with sounds and music, we are on a journey in sound. 
This year the theme of the conference is open to interpretation, but 
people might think about the following, in relation to the theme:


    /Sonic aspects of digital stories, documentaries and archives/


    /The soundtrack to our lives. Archiving and sharing sound /


    /The emotional potential of a sound, how might this be used to
    support interaction/


    /The different uses of music across different settings/


    /The re-use of recollections and memories by composers & sound


    /The development of musical tools that can let us express our
    experiences over time /


    /Socio-technical uses of AI create highly personalised soundtracks
    that respond to one’s context/


    /Adaptive music use in journeys, time and the creative use of data/

  Audio Mostly 2019 encourages the submission of regular papers 
(oral/poster presentation) addressing such questions and others related 
to the conference theme and the topics presented below.

*The Audio Mostly conference series is interested in sound /Interaction 
Design & Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) /in general. The conference 
provides a space to reflect on the role of sound/music in our lives and 
how to understand, develop and design systems which relate to sound and 
music – we are particularly interested in this from a broad HCI 
perspective. We encourage original regular papers (oral/poster 
presentation) addressing the conference theme or other topics from the 
list provided below. We welcome multidisciplinary approaches involving 
fields such as music informatics, information and communication 
technologies, sound design, music performance, visualisation, 
composition, perception/cognition and aesthetics.

• Affective computing applied to sound/music
• AI, HCI and Music
