We are currently accepting proposals for 20-minute research papers.

  • Canons and curating game music
  • Simulation, immersion and „the real“ in sound and audio
  • Game audio outside games

Please submit your paper proposal (c.200 words) to ludomusicology at gmail.com by January 31st 2014.

  • We also welcome session proposals from organizers representing two to four individuals; the organizer should submit an introduction to the theme and c.200 word proposals for each paper.
  • Proposals for papers in alternative formats, such as performances or demonstrations, should be discussed with the conference organizers before the abstract is submitted.
