> opening up the conference scope a bit here. After all, we have already
> several very nice audio/video gigs in the past (some might remember
> the YUE
> concert in Karlsruhe 2006 with a remote VJ live from Italy, which was
> groundbreaking at that time).
> Also, we very much welcome practical papers resp. software demos
> ("how I use
> Linux Audio applications to create my music/media art").
> The web page also holds the paper templates that have to be used for
> Pick one of the two provided templates (LaTeX or OpenOffice), author
> your paper
> and convert it to PDF, then upload that PDF. Make sure you are using A4
> paper size.

How come the linuxaudio.org mirror (http://download.linuxaudio.org) is not
any more updated with newer releases? Last version available on there is
7.04 which is truly enchant.
What do we need to do to jumpstart this thing again? I presume this would be
something you guys would want to explore, particularly considering that the
hosting/bandwidth are effectively free...
