International Conference on Live Coding (ICLC), 13-15 July, Leeds, Registration open
On my recent trip to Germany, I got to connect to live coding again. At the Dagstuhl Seminar I attended, I visited with Alan Blackwell who organized the live coding Dagstuhl Seminar I attended and has been doing live coding with Sam Aaron (of SonicPI fame). When I got back to Oldenburg, I visited with Graham Coleman, a Georgia Tech alum who is completing a PhD in computer music and who was an active live coder in Atlanta. Great to see the first international conference happening soon!
First International Conference on Live Coding
ICSRiM, School of Music, University of Leeds
13th-15th July 2015
We are happy to announce that registration for ICLC2015 is now open. Live coding turns programming languages into live interfaces, allowing us to directly manipulate computation via its notation. Live coding has great potential, being used for example to create improvised music and visuals, to allow developers to collaborate in new ways, to better understand computational models by making fundamental changes to them on-the-fly, and to find new ways to learn and teach programming.
Since the beginning of the TOPLAP movement in 2003 (building on an extensive but hidden pre-history), live coding has grown fast, attracting interest from many people in artistic, creative, scientific, educational, business and mixed contexts. After a good number of international events, the time is right to bring these people together for an academic conference, exchanging ideas and techniques, and enjoying dozens of peer reviewed papers and performances. The conference will also open up the field for people new to live coding, so they may develop and contribute their own perspectives on this emerging field. Join us!
Registration is £80 (£50 concessions) for the three day conference
including lunches, evening events, and more.

And register here, completing both the on-line payment and registration forms.
ICLC is organised by the Live Coding Research Network, which is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
