We are happy to announce the next issue of the Linux Audio Conference (LAC), May 9-12, 2013 @ IEM, the Institute of Electronic Music and Acoustics, in Graz, Austria.

This year's conference is hosted by IEM, Graz, in cooperation with local artists and FLOSS enthusiasts.
The Institute of Electronic Music and Acoustics (IEM) at the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz is considered Austria's leading institution in computer music, acoustics and audio engineering and has gained international reputation for its research on spatial audio and its artistic production and research.
IEM has been embracing Linux audio as a production and research environment since the mid-1990s, and has contributed to FLOSS/Linux projects, amongst others by providing drivers for multichannel audio interfaces and hosting the Pure Data community portal and mailing lists.

The Linux Audio Conference is the international conference about Open Source Software for music, sound and other media with Linux as the main platform.

2012 marks the 10th anniversary of the event and it is the first time the LAC takes place in the United States.

The Linux Audio Conference is an international conference that
brings together musicians, sound artists, software developers and
researchers, working with Linux as an open, stable, professional
platform for audio and media research and music production. LAC includes
paper sessions, workshops, and a diverse program of electronic music.

The upcoming 2012 conference will be hosted at CCRMA, Stanford
University, on April 12-15. The Center for Computer Research in Music
and Acoustics (CCRMA) at Stanford University is a multi-disciplinary
facility where composers and researchers work together using
computer-based technology both as an artistic medium and as a research
tool. CCRMA has been using and developing Linux as an audio platform
since 1997.

Skipped a couple of months in order to get ready for LAC2011. But now that LAC2011 is over I can pick up the monthly round-ups again. I'm not going to cover the months that I skipped so I'll move on with what happened last month, the month of May.

Linux Audio Monthly Round-Up #8 - June 2011

More than a month overdue... It's getting busier at work (we're in the middle of a reorganization) and also I've spent quite some time on making music. And LAC2011 is coming closer, I'm going to do two workshops so I had to prepare my abstracts. Hope you have a nice read anyway, next time I'll try to publish the round-up a bit earlier (well, have to hurry up then already...).
