Conference announcement and call for papers/works/installations

Following the success of the 1st Leeds Music Technology Education Conference
in 2003, Leeds College of Music announces LIMTEC 2004: Sound-Image-Space.

LIMTEC has been established to provide a forum for the promotion of best
practice in music technology learning and teaching in Further and Higher
Education, through the dissemination of the latest research and developments
in the field and consideration of practical strategies for teaching various
skills and techniques.

Music technology is broadly defined as encompassing all aspects of the
subject ranging from classical electroacoustic composition to commercial
music production. The conference will be of particular relevance to
lecturers and teachers of music technology, researchers in music technology
and music education, students and industry specialists.

LIMTEC 2004 CONFERENCE THEME
SOUND-IMAGE-SPACE: APPLYING MUSIC TECHNOLOGY

LIMTEC 2004 will focus on the relationships between sound, image and space
that exist in both commercial and non-commercial applications of music
technology. The conference will address good practice in learning and
teaching in these and other relevant areas.
