Dear all,

as announced earlier on this list, the 2nd LAD conference will take place
April 29th - May 2nd 2004 at ZKM (Zentrum fuer Kunst und Medientechnologie,
Center for Art and Media) Karlsruhe, Germany.

lists presentation material and reports of the 1st conference.

See http://www.linuxdj.com/audio/lad/eventszkm2004.php3
for more information on the 2nd conference.

Many participants of the 1st conference have already confirmed their
participation for the 2nd one. Frank and I would now like to collect
abstracts for planned talks so that we can set up a preliminary program.
We would like to have this available as soon as possible so that we can
advertise the event in computer music journals (such as german Keyboards ;-)
and linux journals (Dave, Daniel, are you listening ?).

If you plan to give a talk on Linux audio development or do a presentation
of music you have done with Linux software, please send an abstract to
both me and Frank Neumann (Frank.Neumann_AT_st_DOT_com). Please estimate
the time you need for your talk so that we can set up a preliminary

We have now three different locations for presentations: The lecture hall
we used for the 1st conference, some seminar rooms and the Kubus, which is
considerable larger than the lecture hall and has a built-in studio.

The seminar rooms can be used for LAD internal presentations and discussion.
The Kubus is ideal for presentations of high public interest, especially
practical demonstrations of audio software. The lecture hall will be used
for technical talks on software development. In short terms: Kubus is LAU,
Lecture hall is LAD.

More rooms imply the option of scheduling parallel sessions. We can only
decide on this after we know roughly how many presentations are to be
expected. This is another reason why early registration is helpful.

Given the excellent conditions at ZKM and the many improvements of Linux
audio software, the second conference promises to be even more successful
than its predecessor.
