About LAC

The Linux Audio Conference (LAC) is the international conference about Free/Open-Source Software for music, sound, and other media with GNU/Linux as the main platform. The LAC is a not-for-profit (and free for all) conference, that is organized by individuals, institutions, and associations on a volunteer basis.

Call for Papers / Posters / Workshops

LAC 2019 invites submissions of papers, posters, and workshops addressing all areas of audio processing based on Linux and open source software. All submissions and presentations are in English. Submitted papers are expected to respect academic standards and must be complete (a simple abstract is not enough). Submissions can focus on technical, artistic, and/or scientific issues and can target developers and/or users.

Call for Music / Multimedia Installations

LAC 2019 also invites submissions of musical works involving the use of technology/open source software and multimedia installations. A jury will select the compositions and installations to be included in the conference program according to artistic merit and technical feasibility. Please be prepared to perform your work yourself and make sure that you have all resources needed to perform your piece (e.g., instruments, props, other performers, etc.). Musical works and installations can address all areas of digital audio and audiovisual art.
