Call for Workshops

We invite proposals for workshops to be held at Audio Mostly 2019. Selected workshops will take place  the day before the main conference (17th September). Workshops provide an opportunity for delegates to interact in a context of shared interests and focused discussion.

Workshop participants are likely to network in meaningful ways whilst addressing issues of research, practice, or education, and generating ideas for creative applications.

We encourage proposals for two different kinds of workshops: hands-on/interactive workshops and regular workshops.

Hands-on/interactive workshops promote a structured communal activity to help build community participation and interaction amongst delegates.

Hands-on/interactive workshops should enable communal knowledge exchange through group-based activities (e.g. doing, making, hacking, sharing). Contrary to regular workshops (see below), this type of workshop should not take the shape of oral sessions where authors present papers. Short presentations or tutorials from organisers, invited speakers and participants can be included but to lead to a communal activity or reflections. For instance, hack sessions could be preceded by presentations of e.g. physical computing tools, Application Programming Interfaces or demos. We encourage to share the outcome of the activity amongst workshop participants.

Regular workshops should provide a forum for presentations and discussions on topics related to the theme or other emerging and specialised topics of interest to the Audio Mostly community. Regular workshops can solicit the submission of papers to be presented at the workshop, but this is not compulsory. In case of paper submission, the review process will be managed by the workshop organisers in collaboration with the Audio Mostly chairs.

Regular workshops can be composed of oral sessions, but we encourage workshop organisers to include sessions enabling delegates to discuss issues, methods and research topics related to the workshop theme. These can for instance take the form of mini-tutorials, panels, focus group or demo sessions.

Workshop organisers should facilitate discussion, help maintain productive interaction, and encourage participation. A diversity of perspectives should be encouraged.

We accept proposals of workshops that last from 0.5 of a day to a full day.



Hands-on/interactive and regular workshop proposals must take the form of a paper submission of up to 6 pages in length.


Workshop proposals are to include:

  • Title

  • The workshop organisers’ contact details (names, affiliation and emails)

  • Short presentation of organisers’ backgrounds

  • Discussion on the rationale for the workshop, the topics addressed and the goals

  • Discussion on the relevance and significance of the workshop to the conference and its theme “Augmented and Participatory Sound/Music Experiences”

  • A clear presentation of the workshop structure including the activities, timing and resources

  • If relevant, a list of planned invited speakers with their background

  • If workshop had previous editions, a brief history of the workshop

  • When relevant, photos/images that help understand proposed workshop activities

  • Desired duration (0.5 to a full day)

  • Desired number of participants (a range is fine)

  • A list of space and technical requirements

  • Brief statement of plans for recruiting and community-building (e.g. through a web page or other type of communication in collaboration with Audio Mostly)

  • Plans to share the outcomes of the workshop (e.g. journal paper, website, blog, videos, etc.)
    A list of any relevant references

  • For regular workshops soliciting paper submission (managed by workshop organisers), the proposal should also include information about the workshop call for papers (see below), at the end of the proposal. Proposals for workshops that don’t require paper submissions don’t need to provide this information.
    – A 250-word draft Call for Participation to be posted on the Audio Mostly website to recruit participants for the workshop upon acceptance
    – Contact details of the workshop organisers who should be experts in the related fields
    – A description of the paper selection process
    – A list of potential Workshop Program Committee members and their affiliations
    – Important dates
    – Estimated paper submission volume
    – Indication if a journal special issue arrangement for the published workshop papers has been made
