The answer was positive and therefore we can announce
that the 2nd LAD
conference is planned to take place April 29th - May 2nd 2004 at ZKM
Count me in - I was bummed that I missed the first one, and would
have attended if it weren't for prior commitments. This much warning
next time around will assure I make it, and I already look forward to
it. I'd like to participate in any way I can.
the option to have more room. In addition to the rooms
we had for the last
conference, we now have the option to also use a hall which is about double
the size of the lecture hall we used for the last meeting. This hall is even
more attractive since it is the recording studio of ZKM and can also serve as
a concert hall. This time there is also the option to invite artists who
actually do music with Linux software.
Excellent! This will be very nice to see (and hear)!
would help us to estimate the approximate scale of the
event which can be
even larger than last time. If you can do a talk or presentation please let
us know the subject and estimated time you need for this. Depending on the
number of talks we can decide whether we will have two parallel sessions.
I can talk on the advances of Linux Audio, if that's desired. I've
been a Linux user since the day Linus sent his mail to the minix
list, I've been actively participating in and watching the Linux
audio scene since then, and as an audio developer in a professional
capacity for the last year, here at Access, I've had an opportunity
to contrast the Linux efforts with other commercial efforts. Linux
Audio has come a long way.
We don't have any Linux fronts to present, but most certainly I can
produce a running summary of the situation from a commecial
perspective, and if its of any interest I will happily do a "Linux
Audio 101, Guided Tour" style development presentation for those who
are interested in a leg-up workshop.
If the program of the event is fixed earlier than last
time, this will
help to advertise it in journals and among relevant companies. It might
also help to find possible sponsors.
Since this is a German-run effort, and Access are a pro-German Audio
industry style company, I will run it by my higher ups and see if I
can't at least get some form of sponsorship happening.
